Hear Ski Lodge Channel the Smiths on Somber Single ‘Our Love Is Over Now’
Brooklyn quartet's debut album, 'Big Heart,' available via Dovecote Records
Last we heard from Ski Lodge, they were saluting Simple Minds with a shimmering cover of the Breakfast Club classic “Don’t You Forget About Me.” Now, the Andrew Marr-fronted foursome have resurfaced with an original new song that resembles the work of another bunch of ’80s romantics: the Smiths. Titled “Our Love Is Over Now,” the self-released digital single sways with the help of sullen piano, melodramatic guitar strums, and a wounded croon that packs a wallop. “Our love is over now,” Marr sings. “We never had much to begin with.” Stream it below.
