Los Angeles power-pop group The Regrettes share their new track ‘I Love Us’, which marks the start of an exciting next chapter for the band. As their most significant musical growth to date, the synth-driven track turns a corner sonically, teasing a fresh creative direction as they work on their next album. ‘I Love Us’ just made its debut on the final season of the hit Netflix series ‘13 Reasons Why’, and is released alongside an adorable animated video.
Frontwoman Lydia Night explains, “‘I Love Us’ to me represents great change and growth for The Regrettes. This song showcases the kinds of risks and genre bending I hope to accomplish moving forward with our third album.
While writing this song, I officially decided to let go of having any preconceived idea for what a song I’m writing needs to be like. It was me deciding to finally stop trying to stay within a box or stick to what’s comfortable genre wise and just allow myself to have fun and not stress about it being ‘cool’ or ‘rock’ enough.
I’m so inspired by artists like Charli XCX, The 1975, St Vincent, Brockhampton and much more. However, I never would let myself get a little weird by combining the elements from those artists that I love with the type of raw rock and power pop I normally write.”
The Regrettes continue to solidify their reputation for unapologetically honest punk-driven feminist pop songs. The band earned widespread acclaim with the 2019 release of their second album ‘How Do You Love?’. Praise included NME, who described them as “truly unstoppable,” Kerrang! hailed them as “a unique proposition in a world full of copycats,” while the Evening Standard asked, ““Are The Regrettes the world’s coolest teenagers?”
Led by Lydia Night (age 19) and completed by Genessa Gariano (22, guitar), Brooke Dickson (24, bass) and Drew Thomsen (22, drums), the band has headlined sold-out shows throughout North America and Europe, and hit summer festivals including Coachella, Reading and Leeds. They broke through with their 2017 debut album ‘Feel Your Feelings, Fool!’ before releasing the ‘Attention Seeker’ EP in 2018.
