After signing with Equal Vision Records in 2018 and generating some buzz with a self-titled EP in 2019, Never Loved return with their debut full-length release for the label entitled Over It, due for release on May 14, 2021. 

Never Loved – ‘Over It’ album art

Building on the energy of their first release and expanding it on Over It, the album begins with a collection of snappy, upbeat jams leading up to the interlude of “Disappear” and the scaled back and heartfelt “Autumn” that wrestles with the ramifications and the emotional process that comes about as a result of loss. 

The Florida trio continue to showcase their versatility throughout the album as “Gasoline” would not have been out of place in the grunge-soaked scene of Seattle and the Pacific Northwest in the early 1990s, while the synths found on “The One For Me” are reminiscent of acts like The Cars or The Anniversary. 

Having worked with legendary producer Matt Squire (Panic At The Disco, Boys Like Girls) on Over It, the full extent of the band’s sonic creativity is fully displayed on the record. These are songs that stay in the listener’s head long after the last one has concluded.

It has clearly been a challenging time stretching more than a year for musicians across the globe, but Never Loved have put this time to good use creating Over It. As a return to normality beckons, the band plans to hit the road again in September 2021 across the US to showcase the tracks from Over It live as the main support for the seminal Armor For Sleep.
