From Our friends at Portland's Willamette Week:

06 January, 2011

"Lovers’ last disc, I Am the West, was one of the best albums to come out of Portland in 2009—even if its release went under the radar for a lot of people. It marked a change in Lovers frontwoman/founder Carolyn Berk’s songwriting philosophy that took the band from being a singer-songwriter’s outlet to a full-on synth-driven pop group (with Kerby Ferris and Emily Kingan joining up along the way), and it did so masterfully.

Lovers’ next album (Dark Light) shouldn’t catch anyone by surprise, because we’re not going to let it. We’ll be premiering a few songs from the band’s forthcoming disc, due out on October 12 on Portland’s own Badman Recording Co." -Casey Jarman
