Single Review: exlovers – This Love Will Lead You On

By on Friday, 11th May 2012 at 12:00 pm

Summer has pretty much had its foot completely in the door where I am, and it seems the perfect time to blast up some low-fi guitar tunes on a beach under the scorching sun. Here, exlovers’ new single, ‘This Love Will Lead You On’, combines low-fi guitar strumming with blush-inducing boy-girl harmonies.

The track starts very directly with no delay and dives straight into the core. The whole song evolves in a natural way as the lyrics’ narrative does the same, too. Its chorus is haunting and it floats around my brain for days, it also has a melody great for humming. Other than that, the uplifting line that is both the track’s title and chorus “this love will lead you on” just discharges the negativity in me completely.

It’s a pleasant track and also extremely radio-friendly. I believe given certain spins from various stations, this single shall be quite successful. With such a strong lead single, exlovers’ upcoming debut album is surely something to look out for.

‘This Love Will Lead You On’, the first single from exlovers’ debut album ‘Moth’, is available now.
