The Lovebullies

from Calgary, AB

Don't let the sequins and sparkles blind you for too long or you might miss out on the many on-stage hijinks and antics that make up a Lovebullies show. The good-natured ribbing and goading is as much part of their live show as their fashion-forward 1960s-inspired sound. Their fourth and most recent album, Somewhere, was released in 2023 and pays homage to nostalgia, reckoning and the great equalizer, nature. Like backcombing a new beehive, the band has teased their sound into a slightly different, updated, elevated doo. The Lovebullies sound encompasses many inspirations: harmonies from girl groups, hip-twisting rhythms from surf rock, gritty guitar tones from early rock, and a lead vocalist whose clear tone harkens back to Dusty Springfield. The Lovebullies offer lyrically penned, thoughtfully crafted, and fearlessly delivered compositions. Shine on, crazy diamonds!
