Sweetlove just released the EP, ‘Goodnight, Lover‘, and if you’ve listened to the singles that were previously released, then you certainly will not be disappointed. ‘Goodnight, Lover‘ is absolutely the EP you were hoping it would be! The album’s theme surrounds issues of mental health and loss. It’s a very personal album. The atmosphere is tender and somber which allows for the heaviness of the lyrics to gently ease and drift about you. The storytelling lyrics give a vivid picture and deepens the emotions throughout the album. All of which makes for the perfect setting for the warm and rich vocals. Leading to a sincere, honest, and vulnerable album that leaves its mark on the listener. Here’s what Sweetlove had to say about ‘Goodnight, Lover‘:
“This experience has really made me think about mental illness and mental anguish, things I’m not a stranger to myself,” Sweetlove continues. “One of the worst things about mental illness is it lies to you and tells you that you’re alone, or that people would be better off without you. David was a vet, and we lost him to suicide. It’s my understanding this happens about twenty-two times a day. That’s shameful. Matt had a hard time getting the help he needed. And Teddy had a whole family around him that loved him, but it wasn’t enough to save him. The system isn’t really set up to help people so they can live lives free of torment and with joy. It seems harder for men to ask for or get help. I don’t know if that’s true. But it seems harder.”
That certainly seems to be true. ‘Goodnight, Lover‘ brings that to the forefront of the collective conversation in a dignified manner. You can listen to, ‘The House‘ down below.
