A sleek-toned indie pop band with a warm West Coast sound, lovelytheband broke through in 2017 with the single "Broken." The song took off online, and by the following year they had landed on top of the Billboard Alternative Songs Airplay chart.
Formed in West Hollywood in 2016, lovelytheband feature former Oh Honey member Mitchy Collins along with guitarist Jordan Greenwald and drummer Sam Price. The band debuted in July 2017 with the Christian Medice-produced "Broken," a sprightly and infectious single that quickly racked up over three million digital streams. Signing with Another Century Records, lovelytheband released their debut EP, Everything I Could, in September of that year and joined Vance Joy and AWOLNATION on tour. In April 2018, "Broken" was still going strong and hit number one on the Billboard Alternative Songs Airplay chart. That August, lovelytheband returned with their full-length debut album, Finding It Hard to Smile. Once again produced by longtime collaborator Christian Medice, the album included "Broken" as well as the single "These Are My Friends." ~ Timothy Monger
