Sinking Ships LP
by tom johnson
While many backstories are used to add false drama or even detract from the actual substance, the tale behind Hey Lover’s inception is certainly a notable one. Formed nearly a decade ago, the now-trio has spent most of its existence as husband-wife duo Justin and Terah Beth who, get this, played their first gig on their wedding night.
Now fleshed out into a fully-functioning three-piece, with the inclusion of bass player – and label boss – Tim Janchar, the band are releasing brand new album ‘Sinking Ships’ this week, and we’re very pleased to bring you a full stream of the full album today.
Wildly, proudly, and unashamedly sticking to the garage-pop formula that has served them so full thus far, ‘Sinking Ships’ is a fearless and frenetic eleven tracks; a rip-roaring dash through loose, lo-fi aesthetics that always carries an air of endearing charm on its valiant, plucky face.
Released fully this coming Friday via Hovercraft Records, you can stream Sinking Ships in full right here – and grab yourself a pre-order while you’re at it.
