Loveless, the Los Angeles duo comprised of vocalist/producer Julian
Julian says, “‘I Hope I’m Not Sick’ came from a time when I thought my anxiety and depression were at their worst. For years, I pretended I was fine and that everything was okay, even when I was dealing with excruciating mental anguish and the fear that it was never-ending. Writing this song allowed me to break free from that fear and accept that my mental illness is a part of me that I need to deal with head-on, and not be afraid to face it. I hope it brings others a similar solace.”
Since first meeting in 2019, Loveless have built an astonishing community online (2 million followers/listeners on TikTok and Spotify plus 5 million monthly streams on Pandora). That fanbase has quickly translated into a strong live following too, with four of their upcoming UK headline shows sold-out and/or upgraded three months in advance.
Loveless released their debut single ‘Better’ in April 2020 just as COVID lockdown restrictions began to go into full force. The limitations prevented any touring plans, so instead Loveless embraced social media to connect with fans. The pair began to find success posting clever covers online, with highlights including entering the Billboard Hot Hard Rock Songs chart at #2 with their version of Elley Duhé’s ‘MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT’, picking up attention from Lizzo with their spin on ‘About Damn Time’, and going viral with their emo/pop-punk version of Billie Eilish’s ‘Happier Than Ever’.
Loveless are currently wrapping up a sold-out North American tour with shows in Los Angeles and San Francisco. The duo will perform at Lollapalooza in Chicago this summer before continuing their world tour in Australia, Europe and the UK.
