Lovr is the new project from former Color//Sound front man and current Raglans guitarist Brendan McGlynn. The new EP is the first of four to be released over the next year. 'Girls, Girls, Girls' was recorded in various houses from the summer of 2015-16. The project was created out of frustration, "I was so sick of trying to adhere to a writing and production style that was always geared toward commercial success. I made this first EP the way I did because I didn’t want it to sound perfect, I just made the music I liked and made it the way i wanted to."
"It was also a product of being complete broke and having no money at all. I recorded some of the demos with no microphone, I had to sing into my headphones that I plugged into the input of my crappy Behringer sound card.
"But I had fun doing it, that had been my ethos for the entire recording and writing process. After being involved in bands that had fame, success and “making it” as the main goal, I became disheartened and it just felt like work. But I never started writing music because i wanted to be famous, i made it because i loved it and wanted to express something. So that was my constant inspiration when i was creating this new project i made it for myself and if only some of my friends and my mum like it then il be happy."
The name Lovr came from a few different places. Firstly the thought of a lanky semi-ginger Donegal man with a bit of a belly calling himself a lover was pretty hilarious to me. In fact the idea of an Irish person having the stereotypical characteristics of a “Lover” is pretty foreign to our general vibe. But with the advent of things like Tinder it seems like thats what we’ve become and the more I watch my friends’ relationships, it seems they are more Lovers than relationship people as casual sex is so readily available.
Nobody else was called Lovr. But also i wanted to take the word “Love” out of Lover because I don’t feel it really belongs in there.
The name "Girls Girls Girls" came from the 3 tracks. Women are the main theme in each song. The opening track “Ode to the women of my life” is a chronicling of all the women I’ve ever been with. From my first girlfriend in primary school to my last. It's also kinda funny.

This album is for my friends and family who show constant support and love. Without them none of this would be possible. Thank you.
