The New York band looks to expand its strong following well beyond the Tri-State area.
New York band East Love have done an excellent job building a very strong following in the Tri-State area, especially via social media. For good reason, too. As you'll hear on the new track "Unbroken", from their upcoming debut EP, their smooth combination of pop, rock, folk, and country, caters to the mainstream but never panders. It's the kind of music that generates a wide audience with its openness and charm, and you can envision East Love expanding beyond their home region sooner than later.
"Sometimes we find ourselves in relationships that simply can't work," the band tells PopMatters about the song. "Sometimes, although we know deep down things are coming to an end, we want to pretend like everything is going to be okay. We want to live in those magical moments, and ignore the truth. Because ignorance is bliss. We've all had those times where we'd love nothing more than to stay suspended in the moment. We wanted to write a song about that."
