Wow, what can I say about the Lunch Ladies track "Love Is Overrated" except that it came to me just in time. Navigating through my email box some of the music was just not doing it for me and then this band and this song pulled me out of the musical funk I was in. Yes, a rather weird name for a band but this outfit out of New Jersey that consists of Matt Whitley (vocals, guitar), Cynthia Rittenbach (vocals, bass), Matt Ramiz (vocals, guitar) and Peter Gargano (drums) gleefully takes you to other places. I suggest you play this track at your desk at work at the end of a hard day.
"Love Is Overrated" a single off their forthcoming album Down On Sunset Strip is a dynamic dreamy sweeping song. It has an emotional arc as it kind of ambles then takes off then sways again. The sound is a glitter ball of lights at a high school dance, broken hearts and the one that got away or you never even got. So eager to hear the entire album which drops officially March 10th via Good Eye Records.
"Love is overrated, love is overrated and I'm happy in my room" - who cannot relate to this.
