Unabashedly inspired by the 1980s, Love Meets Lust has a steely appreciation for New Wave's timelessness...tempered slightly by modernity's hammer and electronic music's white heat. www.lovemeetslust.net

Biography

Love Meets Lust is a four-member electro/new wave/rock ’n’ roll group from Detroit, Michigan. Eschewing the brawn and grit often associated with the Motor City, Love Meets Lust’s sensual name is just one of their many ornamental attractions. Rife with melodramatic vocals, darkly constructed synth sounds and twittering drumbeats, if LML’s sound harkens any place in musical history, it would be 1980s Manchester, England: The seeds are deeply sown, but the context is 2009-modern.

LML’s dance party-igniting live performances and DIY light shows eclipse the now-ubiquitous “ironic 80s,” cliché by employing reverence and bona fide musicianship to assert their artistic vision. They do not attempt to fix what isn’t broken, nor do they cash in on obvious templates.

Just three months after forming, Love Meets Lust was featured at the 11th Annual Metro Times Blowout Music Festival. One week after their breakthrough Blowout performance, LML played to a sold-out crowd at award-winning venue, The Belmont in Hamtramck, MI. (Video from the show can be found in our "LINKS" below.)

Also see below for a Motor City Rocks (motorcityrocks.com) podcast featuring LML and 80s new wavers, Figures On A Beach. The internationally popular Detroit-based music site dubs the outfits, “two of Detroit's best synth rock bands.”

LML is currently working with Bunim-Murray and Triple 9 Music on placements.

Two of LML's songs off thier "bitter company" release have been recently featured in skull candy tv videos for Skull candy headphones.

Love Meets lust music can also be found in O'neil surf's ads for Hyperfreak board shorts and also in the new Brian Solano rock climbing dvd "players"

Lyrics

Brooklyn Lights

Written By: John Webb "love meets lust"

Its you and I untill the end of time.
Untill it stops,untillit fades away.
We grew together and learned to hate,and I'm sorry.
Its you and I untill th eend of time.

Chorus-
The moment left and we woke shaking.

Tear filled eyes won't buy us us time.

In Brooklyn the lights went out, in Brooklyn the drinks ran out, and we found ourselves alive.

verse 2-
Jealous of the ignorant the ones who know. The ones who are placed inside of the mold.
They never saw the sky exactly the way that we did. If you and I fail tonight the system wins...

chorus-
The moment left and we woke shaking.

Tear filled eyes won't buy us us time.

In Brooklyn the lights went out, in Brooklyn the drinks ran out, and we found ourselves alive.

Bridge-
Its in our eyes, that we are running scared from everything and we are running out of time.

Chorus-
The moment left and we woke shaking.

Tear filled eyes won't buy us us time.

In Brooklyn the lights went out, in Brooklyn the drinks ran out, and we found ourselves alive.
