How many ways can you write a sad song? Ryan and Anji set out on a quest to find the answer. By turns intimate and earthy, then soaring and ethereal, Lovespirals’ 5th album explores themes of love, loss, and the passage of time while weaving together their various musical influences. From the brooding and ethereal mood of Cocteau Twins and The Cure, to the woozy alt-country of Slowdive / Mojave 3 and Mazzy Star, to the retro blues rock of Doyle Bramhall II and John Mayer, this So Ca duo find the connecting thread of longing that ties these seemingly disparate song crafters together, colored by their own melancholic beachy vibe.
This limited pressing CD features gorgeously dreamy wraparound cover art on a 4-panel eco-wallet with matching full-color CD artwork. All photos were taken by Anji Bee at some of Lovespirals' favorite inspirational California destinations. If you're a fan of her vlogs, you've definitely heard snippets of some of these compositions, and if you're an avid viewer of Ryan's debunking videos, then you'll be familiar with the more electronica-based, "Spinning Circles," a song that was completed for inclusion on the album specifically by our YouTube fan requests!
