Waiting To Spill

By: Laurie Gallardo

The Backseat Lovers, Nov. 15, 2022. Alyssa Olvera/KUTX.

When We Were Friends by The Backseat Lovers is one of those impossibly good albums making it difficult to pick just one favorite track. Not fair. The ears are coaxed in with the beautiful opener “Watch Your Mouth” and that’s it. It keeps going. You’re hooked. How could it be possible that this 2019 release would be reminding you of memories from years ago? It’s that kind of magic.

No sophomore slump for this quartet. Along comes the amazing Waiting To Spill, and again, the cohesiveness of the entire work – the attention to every minute DIY detail, the lyrical process, all make it another striking LP. Experience some of that beauty by checking out The Backseat Lovers’ Studio 1A performance, then check out their show tomorrow night, Wednesday May 17, at Moody Amphitheater. Doors at 6:30 p.m., and Chicago-based artist Sofia Jensen‘s indie folk project Free Range opens the show.
