New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Locket Love official website)
'Locket Love' announces digital release of their debut E.P., "My Minor Chords Matter" over 250 Global Retail Partners including iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, eMusic, YouTube and Rhapsody, etc.
'Locket Love' consists of Ronnie Bourne on guitar and vocals, A.J. Hickernell on guitar, Brian "Doog" Houser on Bass, and Michael 'Jopie' Marion on drums.
These boys attribute a slew of musical influences, from Manchester Orchestra's dramatic undertones, to Dinosaur Jr.'s simplistic thought endearing lyrical style. There is a heavy spoonful of punk rock from Alkaline Trio's "Goddammit" album, and grunge rock's lesser known step-sibling "Mudhoney" scattered about their material.
These influences ultimately result in a sound that is just as much 'Black Keys/White Stripes' garage rock, and classic punk rock. They reign from the great land of Northern Pennsylvania, where Philadelphia, the city of brotherly-love, is far enough away to be a dream, and the Pocono Mountains enlighten the entire state with their sheer size and glory. The Pennsylvania breeding ground preserves true garage rock energy, and on 'Locket Love's debut E.P, you see their mix of musical influences and their home swarming into a 7 track ode to rock and roll.
'Locket Love's' debut E.P., satirically named "My Minor Chords Matter", was recorded under the guidance of Jason Puleio and Mike George
at The Gas Chamber Recording and Multimedia Studio in Easton, PA and released under White Collar Records.
