Next Big Thing: exlovers

I’ve got another lowercased band to highlight, this time the London-based exlovers, and the wistful indie-pop quintet are definitely one to watch. At the very least, they’re working with the right people: after forming about a year ago, exlovers have already toured with Pete Doherty, Emmy the Great, and Pete and the Pirates; and their next EP, You Forget So Easily, is produced by Stephen Street, of The Smiths and Blur fame. Not bad. And the music? Sweet, jangly, Belle-and-Sebastian-ish tunes, perfect for a rainy day and a hot cup of tea. PG Tips, I think it is.
