As Loveydove, Azalia Snail has once again demonstrated the power of a simple song. Now with music guru Dan West as her current collaborator, this duo delivers an eclectic and electrically exciting blend of excellent songwriting and pinpoint precise production, with melodies to live by and a dance beat to die for! Snail has always been known for her wonderfully simple and subtly strange lyrics, and mixing that with possibly the highest production value of any album in her catalog has done something special for this veteran of the lofi indie scene. With danceable and sing-along-able anthems like “Luka Fisher” or the powerful opening number “Crown Dancer,” LoveyDove has released a consistent piece of work that pushes this duo toward a new sound. Their mission is ambitious but refreshingly simple, too: LoveyDove is here to make you dance, smile, and have a good time!
