Semblance, the alternative/electro-rock duo made up of 17-year-olds Maeve Gorman and Connor LeFevre, has teamed up with PopDust to exclusively stream their debut EP I Love You! Listen HERE. The EP, features their singles “Angel” and “Sex.”
The 5-track EP was produced by Carl Bahner (ex-member of Cheerleader). The band’s goal was to write songs that hit the listener’s emotions, while simultaneously wanting to make them rock out.
On the EP, vocalist Maeve Gorman shares, “I Love You as a whole touches on what it’s like to feel haunted and victimized by your own thoughts while telling a love story that progresses track by track. However, the title isn’t actually being used to profess love, but more in an ironic way because ‘I love you’ is a phrase that gets tossed around so much that it’s lost some of its weight and meaning.”
Semblance is 17-year-olds Maeve Gorman (vocalist, guitar, keys), and Connor LeFevre (drums). Maeve is native to the Philadelphia suburbs, and Connor hauls from Montclair, NJ. After lack of inspiration from their peers in either of their hometowns, they both turned to the magical World Wide Web, where the two met, and began trading demos back and forth, despite living 100 miles apart. Within their first in-person meeting, they wrote the first cut of their upcoming EP.
Maeve and Connor are both in stages of their lives where they are facing the struggle of self-discovery, and their music is an expression of that inward journey toward self-love and acceptance, despite social conditions. Their hope is that their listeners can hear Semblance’s music and feel the courage to be themselves, and know that they are accepted and loved.
I Love You was released February 16, 2018. For more information, please visit: https://www.semblanceisaband.com/.
