lovelesslust has been my passion, my lifeblood, since I was a young teenager. Obsessed with the intense, visceral sounds of rock and electronic music that scared most of my friends and peers, I knew I had found my purpose. I knew something this important would take time, discipline and training to create, so for nearly a decade, lovelesslust was a collection of late night experiments in dark rooms, sitting on hard drives that only I could access.-Johnathan Cooper Composer/Performer
The video for the first single “AntiYouth” can be seen below.
LA-based lovelesslust (composer/performer Johnathan Cooper, guitarist/bassist Dana Wells, and drummer Anders LaSource) bridges the gap between rock band and art piece; their darkly aggressive industrial sound coalesces with an electrifying stage presence, sinister original art that flanks the stage, and a black and white visual motif that unites the musicians themselves with their art.
lovelesslust has performed at renowned venues such as Bar Sinister, House of Blues – Main Stage, and The Viper Room, and toured across the southwestern United States, which culminated in a performance to a packed house in Austin during SXSW.
The upcoming 11-song album THE CAR CRASH THAT ENDED HER LIFE CAME AS NO SURPRISE, produced by Cooper and mixed by Amir Derakh (Julien-K, Orgy), incorporates the band’s live energy, vocal harmonies, and lush strings into their synth-heavy sound. An early version of album’s first single, the anthemic crowd-favorite “AntiYouth”, was remixed by the legendary Chris Corner (IAMX, Sneaker Pimps).
