Dublin-based indie rock band Lavelle are this week announcing the release of their new single ‘Start As Friends’ on all digital platforms.
The latest release off their forthcoming album, ‘Start As Friends’ is a light and up-tempo summer track based around a mellow acoustic guitar hook and driven by a simple bass groove. The band is accompanied on this track by singer Maria Hynes on backing vocals, who provides an extra harmonic lift throughout.
Together since 2014, three-piece Lavelle have spent recent years in and out of Dublin’s Camden Recording Studios working on their debut album ‘Stem The Flow’ (scheduled for release later this year) with veteran Irish producer and sound engineer Conor Brady.
The band’s four-track EP ‘Feel Like I Do’ was released in April 2017, followed in recent years by several singles off the album. Most recently the band released the energetic track ‘Rejuvenate’ in December 2020, along with a music video reflecting the Covid lockdown that the country was enduring.
Commenting on the theme of their latest release, Lavelle’s lead singer and songwriter John Ryan said: “The song was written 15 years ago in an attempt to impress a girl! Her previous relationship had ended and I tried to convey how hard breakups can be in the song.”
‘Start As Friends’ is available on all digital platforms from Friday, 2nd April.
