Let's Blow The Whole Thing Up by The Lovely Wars

Dear Poptastic Readers,

As you might remember, last year I interviewed Ani from The Pipettes. And while the group takes a break (or breaks up?), Ani is fronting a new band called The Lovely Wars.

The Lovely Wars are ... Daniel (Drums), Ceri (Keyboards), 
Ani (Lead Vocals), Alice (Lead Guitar) and Bill (Bass Guitar).

Well, for the last half of 2012, the Cardifff band toured Wales. Finally, they are releasing their debut song called "Let's Blow The Whole Thing Up" on January 21. And here is the artwork ...

The song reminds me of The Go-Go's. And funnily enough, their press release even mentions The Go-Go's. The song definitely has a band sound to it, and the band is tight! By that I mean the music is very well done.

It's not a million miles away from The Pipettes. In fact, you can almost imagine The Pipettes singing to it. Ani's vocals are quite playful and the lyrics are clever.

There is a video montage of cartoons and old movies. It's rather well done! However, no video of the band. At least not yet.

Like many artists these days, The Lovely Wars are releasing music on their own label. So I guess this is indie rock. And, as a nice gesture, the single will be offered up free. What a delight. For more information, please see The Lovely Wars Facebook Page.

However, I do hope if a time comes when you can legally buy the song, that you do to help support the artists.

Cheers then!
