about

Muriel Spark described Scotland as a ‘nevertheless’ country: a country where apparent contradictions and paradoxes sit side-by-side to create a nation which is all the better for its multi-faceted nature. Andrew Pearson & Lovers Turn to Monsters make ‘nevertheless’ pop music. They write songs of unusual lyrical depth and sophistication, nevertheless delivered with a lightness of touch and common unpretentiousness that makes 'Everything We Miss' one of the most charming and likeable releases of the year. They are almost morbidly obsessed with writing about death, loss and loneliness; nevertheless their music is relentlessly upbeat, uplifting and optimistic. It is homemade and DIY, nevertheless undeniably ‘pop’. In their brilliant collaborative debut, two of Scotland’s finest young songwriters have created an album of beguiling and ingenious indie-pop that thrives on its multifaceted nature.

Andrew Pearson & Lovers Turn to Monsters (a.k.a. Kyle Wood) were united by their love of comic books, Wes Anderson and lo-fi music. These influences shine through in their desire to make good ol’ fashioned entertainment yet with a sincere, and at times devastating, emotional core. 'Everything We Miss' is a must-listen.


Some nice things other folk had to say;

"It’s full of the upbeat, lo-fi, ramshackle tunes that both songwriters specialise in, which mask blackly humorous lyrics that touch on some of the heaviest of human concerns."
Lis-Marie Ferla (Last years girl)

"If you’re a fan of Frightened Rabbit’s more acoustic moments, Belle and Sebastian, King Creosote and so on then this is for you. Even if that doesn’t sound like you, you really should try this album as there are some wonderful moments here that deserve to be heard."
David McElroy (XSNoize)

"‘Everything We Miss’ is an understated triumph of two young talents coming together to produce an album that is sure to win over anyone with a soft spot for lovingly-crafted lo-fi songs."
Gavin Porter (Is This Music?)

about

Lovers Turn to Monsters Glasgow, UK

Lovers Turn to Monsters is a man of average height, falling into middle age from West Lothian in Scotland, although he now lives in Glasgow with his love and his tiny dog Ralph. He wishes he could be one of those guys who tours all the time, but he likes his own bed far too much. So instead he stays in his room and makes lengthy albums of emotive lo-fi nonsense. ... more
