Band page created in 2011.
Assembled in London, meeting through mutual friends exlovers have wasted no time since forming in early 2008. Their early sound was a quiet, folkish affair playing songs such as 'The Ruins' and 'S.O.F' previously written by Peter . exlovers quickly drew upon their early 90's American and UK indie influences (The Cure/Teenage Fan Club/My Bloody Valentine/Elliot Smith), collectively writing to combine sweetly sombre lyrical musings with lo-fi guitars, ever-developing boy-girl harmonies and subtle instrumental discord to stunning effect.
After completing several UK tours with the likes of Golden Silvers, Emmy the Great, and Pete and the Pirates, exlovers drew the attention of legendary indie producer Stephen Street (Blur, The Smiths, Pete Doherty) after watching the band supporting Pete Doherty on the '09 NME Awards Tour. Having released limited edition 7" singles 'Just a Silhouette' (Chess Club) and 'Photobooth/Weightless' (Young & Lost Club double A-side), both of which were widely lauded and proved mainstays at XFM, Radio 1 and 6Music, Street offered his services to record the forthcoming 5 track E.P. entitled 'You Forget So Easily'.
'You Forget So Easily' is released on 14th September through Chess Club Records. exlovers are to tour France in October on the InRocks tour with Peter Bjorn and John, as well as a co-headline UK tour with Kurran and the Wolfnotes.
exlovers comprise of Peter Scott (Vocals/Guitar), Laurel Sills (Vocals/Keys/Glock/Percussion), Danny Blackman (Bass/Guitar), Chris Woodhead (Guitar/Vocals), Brooke Rogers (Drums/Percussion)
