In 1975 The Captain & Tennille made famous a tune titled “Love Will Keep Us Together”, popularizing the Neil Sedaka composition on a worldwide scale. In 1979, ever the ironic penman that he was, Joy Division’s Ian Curtis cut a single named “Love Will Tear Us Apart”, a warning issued to listeners about the pains attached to romantic accords…and issued by a man experienced in intimacy gone awry.
On Tuesday, September 2nd, Skillman, NJ’s The Antics will, intentionally or unintentionally (we don’t know), unveil the next chapter in this music book with “Love & Roses”, a new stand alone single discussing life in a confusing and confining relationship.
The Antics present this play-by-play on a bed of Brit-Rock inspired guitar flourishes, jangling into each unassured offering as frontman Luke Meisenbacher opines about the game of love, a place where “senses go to die” and your left with questions for your partner like “what are you trying to do to me?” and “why are you trying to make me forget everyone you adhere too?”
