Interview with Indie Pop Band "Lovelife"

Please enjoy the wonderful responses of Lee Newell, singer of dreamy UK indie band Lovelife!

Thanks so much for taking the time to respond to the oh-so-pressing questions that we have. My name is Autumn Coleman and I am a writer for Ultra5280. We saw you rock the pants off of Denver at the Gothic last month where everyone fell in love with you. Your super sexy synth supported jams are excellently complimented by your dashing United Kingdom charm and good looks. AKA: Methinks you are totally more than interview material. Now on to the exciting stuff:


First of all; can you shed a little light on who brings the most muscles to the band? Who is the best kisser?

Muscle wise, I suppose that would be Frank. He came 4th in the 1998 Young Bodybuilder Of The Year (Berkshire Division). As for best kisser, that would be me.

What has been your favorite American tour spot? (You don’t have to say Denver – but we fully expect it)!

Denver. You welcomed us with open arms and cheap beer. We also got to visit some hot springs pre-show so we were revitalised.

How would you describe your music to someone who has never heard it before?

Heartsick pop music.

Where do you find inspiration when you’re writing?

It's nearly always about a failed relationship. Writing about it has always seemed to be the most therapeutic form of recovery.

When is Frank going to star in a video?

When we need some eye candy.

Have you been told that your music would be a perfect addition to a lovemaking playlist?

Yes, often.

Why the name “lovelife?”

It was the only one that wasn't taken... And also, at the time my personal lovelife had come to somewhat of a standstill. So I had to create one for myself.

Give one random and interesting fact about each of the members:

I've never eaten a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Ally is from Herefordshire, home of cider. Frank is an officially qualified coffee expert. Sam has never been on a roller coaster.

When I come to the UK, can we grab a beer and/or tea (Ally – you can feel free to make me a cup)?

Of course. We'll have some overpriced lager and weak tea. On us!

What do you boys do when you’re not melting faces with your gorgeous music?

We drink, and eat, mainly drink. I struggle to remember more than 12 hours ago.

Who is each guy’s celebrity crush? (I figure it’s only appropriate to get into love lives…. DUH.)

(All) Emily Ratajkowski. Although she isn't technically a celebrity yet.

Will any/all of you marry me? (Say yes.)

Will you sign a prenup first?

(When) can we expect a full length album?

Next year. It's something we're working on right now.

Lee – When did you start singing?

I didn't know I had started? I just make noises.

What has been your favorite American food?

Po-Boy's. That is some next level shit.

Sam –  who is your favorite artist right now?

Diana. (The band, not the princess.)
