Sure, we still have two months to get through. But "Broken" by lovelytheband seems to have completely dominated 2018.
The Los Angeles trio seems to have come out of nowhere. But what we perceive as overnight success often turns out to be a story of perseverance. Mitchy Collins spent time in several different bands over the years - most notably as half of indie duo Oh Honey. He met Jordan Greenwald and Sam Price while bar hopping one night in L.A. They became friends; and the rest, as they say, is history. But it's history that's still developing.
"Broken" dropped back in April 2017. Radio climbed on board late in the year and by mid-2018 the "let's be lonely together" synthpop track became a monster. "Broken" spent 7 weeks as the #1 Alternative song by airplay. With two months remaining in 2018, "Broken" has lead of 6,000 spins and growing over the #2 song (Foster The People's "Sit Next To Me") and shows a remarkably long shelf life. And the mainstream pop world is starting to take notice.
lovelytheband released their debut album finding it hard to smile back in August.
Wanna see em live? Bad news - you just missed 'em. lovelytheband rolled through Boston a few weeks ago. They sold out The Sinclair in Cambridge pretty well in advance.
