New Love Sport video shows us ‘Wrong Kind of Evil’

Love Sport release self directed video

Way back in May, LOVE SPORT released their second well received album And Justice For All.  A perfect reminder to revisit the charms of And Justice For All now arrives in the form of a video for album cut ‘Wrong Kind of Evil.’

The band tells us of the video and song“‘Wrong Kind Of Evil’ is one of the most melancholic songs on the latest Love Sport album And Justice For All. A dark but mellow October night in Helsinki was a good match for the atmosphere of the song and the video was shot quite spontaneously while spending an evening together.

SOUNDI Premiered the video 

Mystic Sons ” …bold and bouncing indie-rock jam”

Austin Town Hall “…its the chorus here that really sells this tune, bringing in this balance between heavy rock and melody; I can always hear the band having fun as their rocking through it”

Press reaction to And Justice For All

WYMA “It consists of seven tracks of substantial, hook-filled, crunchy, noisy alternative rock. Each song has good pop bones, but the band does not rest until each song is fleshed out as a white hot, live performance crowd-pleaser”

Austin Town Hall “My standout favorite was “Life’s a Joke” at the beginning; it kind of reminds me of the Men if they were to bring on more of a pop flavor. “Keying Cars” was a nice little twist too, tossing in this slow burning ballad that brims with pop sensibility. Walking away, “Giant Hoof” might also be my favorite jam…those guitars falling off the tracks, only to be reined in by the vocals! And Justice for All has a little something for everybody!”

Päivän Biisit “The garage rock-tinted Karkkiautomaatti meets Pavement atmosphere of the song is perhaps closest to the records of singer/guitarist Teemu Tanner’s Kynnet band, and certainly a good way for many Kynnet fans to get to know the great production of Love Sport as well.”

RUMBA “The album And Justice For All is a concise package of seven tracks that can take repeated listens”

Soundi “When searching for ghosts of alternative rock and powerpop, Love Sport are more reminiscent of the early 1990s Flaming Lips or the most melodic side of the Pixies “

Desibeli “The close cooperation between the string instruments and the vocals, which makes the sound landscape very
congruent across the record, also deserves praise.”

Aura Pastrana ” This Rock has power but it does not burst your ears, it caresses you. I applaud “round” records, which you can listen to in order, in disorder, from beginning to end, from end to beginning.”

Nordische Musik “Rebellion with the crackling guitar noise is timeless!”

EU Radio Album of the week “In the pure style of alternative rock, this album aims to get to the point with its 7 tracks on the clock.”

Minnis 2 Society interview

I Don’t Hear a Single “…whilst essentially being Indie Rock, there’s plenty of variety here to revel in. Teemu Tanner’s vocal sound is very Gaz Coombes, but Love Sport are no Supergrass. This is a really intelligent offering.”
