Watch a haunting live video of Lovelorn’s unreleased song “Sickness”
Lovelorn played their first headlining Philly show at Johnny Brenda’s last month, and the setlist included a performance of the as-yet unreleased song “Sickness.” Captured in video form by Philly concert videographer Markit Aneight, the song begins with a skittering, metronome-like beat as frontwoman Anna Troxell plucks out a creeping bassline. Her cheekbones glitter under moody lighting and fog rises behind her, creating a haunted, darkwave vibe. Rising from the disintegrated dust of psych-punks Creepoid, Lovelorn is digging out its own niche in the Philly scene. Watch the video below, and catch Lovelorn when they play August 1 at the Electric Factory, opening for Glassjaw and Quicksand. Tickets and more information on the show can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar.
