LOVE was written and produced by musical partners Mark McMaster and George Panagopoulos at Sanctuary Recording Studio. The album opener “Love Right Now” illuminates the scope of the band’s style. Ethereal guitar and a steady beat give way to falsetto-punctuated verses from frontman Panagopoulos.
“Social media has created an atmosphere of divisiveness,” Panagopoulos says. “I’m the worst! The song is talking to me, because I’m such an asshole on my Facebook profile to people I disagree with. I’m realizing what I need to do is be more inclusive and understand why others have the ideas they do—even though I disagree with them. It comes down to seeing the humanity in others, listening, and accepting them.”
With a genre-inclusive style, the Hamilton, ON quintet—George Panagopoulos [vocals, guitar], Kenny Thor Corke [bass], Adam Neumann [guitar], Ashton Norman [drums], and Vincent Sciara [keys]—emit an inimitable and irresistible frequency tuned in to rock, alternative, funk, and pop all at once. “Love manages to encompass musical diversity while adopting musical essence and nostalgia, only with a more modern approach” – I’m Music Magazine.
“Everything changed for the entire planet in a single instant. Everyone is confused and fear is beginning to take hold of our daily thoughts and exchanges. We are vulnerable and many of us are alone. Systems are breaking down. Even though we’re all apart somehow we now all realize that we have each other. We need to look deep into ourselves and find the common universe that lives in each of us. We don’t need politics, or conspiracy theories, more division or distractions. What we need is love right now,” says Panagopoulos.
