MULTI-PLATINUM ALT-POP TRIO LOVELYTHEBAND RECRUITS MISTERWIVES FOR “BUZZ CUT” REWORK
Of the collaboration, lovelytheband lead singer Mitchy Collins shares, “I’ve known Mandy for a long time. I just love the tone of her voice and her songwriting. Been really diggin MisterWives’ new album ‘Superbloom’ lately. I was listening to it a couple weeks ago and I thought I’d hit Mandy up and see if she’d like to put her spin on ‘buzz cut.’ We couldn’t be any more excited than we are on how it turned out.”
MisterWives frontwoman, Mandy Lee adds, “The one silver lining about not being able to tour this year has been being forced out of the usual routine and making time for new projects like collaborating with friends. I’ve known Mitchy for… dare I say… a decade? And I’m so stoked for lovelytheband and all they’ve achieved together and hope one day we can sing ‘buzz cut’ live when it’s safe.”
