We Were Lovers has gusto! Dancey beats, swirling atmospheric guitars, and dynamic synths convey a wide array of moods and themes, as strong female vocals wrap stories of love and loss around catchy melodies. With comparisons such as “... Stevie Nicks-meets-The Cure pop." by The Austinist.com - The Polite Invasion: Canada Bands at SXSW, Ash Lamothe and Elsa Gebremichael have mastered a pop balance infusing electro, dreamy, rock and disco elements. Known for their heart-pumping, high energy live show, this duos undeniable connection radiates from the stage pulling you to nowhere but the dance floor.
No stranger to the road, WWL has spent many months on tour across Canada and much of the U.S. with travels to NYC and most recently Las Vegas, San Diego and LA where they showcased at the Viper Room. They’ve also shared the stage with The Arkells, Land Of Talk, and the New York Dolls, showcased at the WCMAs, CMW, NXNE and SXSW and recorded their upcoming self titled EP with Engineer / Producer Chris Coady (Yeah Yeah Yeahs, TV On The Radio, Beach House, Grizzly Bear, etc), mastered by Joe Laporta of The Lodge (The Raveonettes, Vampire Weekend, The Walkmen etc).
