Lovejoy release track and video of ‘Call Me What You Like’

Gaming/streaming/musicians Lovejoy return with a brand new single taken from their upcoming album. ‘Call Me What You Like’ sees the indie-rock four piece releasing their most interesting track to date and the one that offers them the biggest chance so far of finding a wider, more mainstream audience.

Alongside ‘Call Me What You Like’ Lovejoy also release the video; directed by bass guitarist Ash Kabosu, the video hones in on frontman Will Gold as he travels on a plane, obsessing over his current love interest while oblivious to the unfortunate events unfolding around him. The punchy song features lyrics about a confusing relationship, with Will eventually acknowledging “I’m not paranoid, I’m a realist/I know you’re gonna kill me” in the song’s hook.

On the story behind ‘Call Me What You Like’, he says: “It’s about the phase in any kind of relationship that isn’t a relationship yet, where you’re not sure of the ‘what are we?’ That idea that you want it to be more than just a fling but you’re struggling with the commitment.”

In addition to the single the band are set to embark on an already sold out UK tour taking in the following dates:

  • 24 March – Newcastle University, Newcastle, UK
  • 25 March – SWG3, Glasgow, UK
  • 27 March – O2 Institute, Birmingham, UK
  • 28 March – Electric Brixton, London, UK
  • 29 March – O2 Ritz, Manchester, UK
  • 31 March – SWX, Bristol, UK
  • 9 July – TRNSMT Festival, Glasgow, UK
  • 23 & 24 August – Reading and Leeds Festival, UK
