“I couldn’t be happier with this one, I’m interested to see how people will take to this different direction and I can’t wait to play it live, I’ve always wanted a piano ballad,” says Cade. “I’m so excited for people to hear this song. It’s a very different sound for us, and I’m so proud of the way it turned out,” adds Bokenkamp.
“Open-hearted songwriting and energetic performance style are two of the defining features of The BRKN’s music” — American Songwriter.
“Lovers came together as a song out of left field; the shuffle, the tempo, the emotionally bare lyrics, nothing about this song really made sense for us as a band initially. Jacob wrote the vibey chords on an electric piano and Mike showcased his wild versatility on the drums giving “Lovers” a vintage feel while remaining upbeat. Once we started down the road of a more traditional sounding love song/lament type shuffle, there was no going back, and we pressed into it fully.” — Says Younkers
