Seven years after their last full release, duo Love and Theft dropped their six-track EP Better Off on July 22. “This is the most authentic music we’ve ever made,” says Eric Gunderson, one half of the Love and Theft duo. “We didn’t write with a specific sound in mind; we just wrote to have fun and be as creative as possible. This is probably the coolest music we’ve ever put out.”
It’s definitely cool how Love and Theft were able to fuse together different sounds to craft such a special project like Better Off. By mixing classic rock, gospel sounds, and contemporary pop-country, Love and Theft embolden their already strong back catalogue with cool new sounds for fans old and new alike. The titular “Better Off” shows how happier they are when they are surrounded by their loves. The popular “Accidentally On Purpose”, released last year features stark vocals with an 80s-influenced vibe.
New songs shared on Better Off include “Anyway”, a track about persisting in love despite flaws. “Downhill” has those more pop-sounding vibes interspersed with s fun twanging guitar. “Tell Me What It Feels Like” tackles a tough conversation with an ex when the ex has moved on. “Mirror Mirror” shares the hopes that their reality isn’t just a fantasy and that the love they experience is real.
Other half of the duo Stephen Barker Liles shares how the pair asserted their creativity behind Better Off. “It’s what we want to say,” says Stephen. “It’s even more personal because this is the first time we’ve ever owned our masters and our publishing.” It’s an exciting time for Love and Theft as they signed a new deal with ONErpm, with Better Off as their first major release through ONErpm.
