Love Is All
he indie band from Gothenburg, Love Is All, made a big splash in the music scene with singles: Make Out; Fall Out and Make Up and the album, Nine Times That Same Song.
They have toured all continents in the world (including South America) but it is in the United States that they have made the biggest impression. And no wonder, with help from the likes of Pitchfork who gave their album 8.7 out of 10 and also by calling their song Talk Talk Talk Talk Daft Punk, which has Karen O’s snarl and James Chance on the Saxophone. The Karen O and the Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs comparison is something they get to hear a lot of, maybe those people are right, maybe it is just too easy a
comparison because both have a female vocalist.
Love Is All have played in Ireland before when they were supporting Maximo Park on a UK tour which made its way over the water and into Vicar Street. Now, single of the week in NME and an appearance on Rough Trade’s Indiepop Volumen One (in between My Bloody Valentine and Josef K) later, they’re coming back.
They have now recorded their second album and the show on March 1 in the Button Factory will be their first live performance since their last Irish appearance.
