Over the past two years, lead singer/songwriter/producer Gabe Donnay pieced together the songs that would become Love Hz as sonic skeletons in his home studio to expand them with the band in tow. Throughout 2016, a slate of well-received singles (including “Further Away“, “State of Mind“, and “Undertow“) have paved the way for the album, garnering over one million streams and multiple features on iTunes and Spotify.

With propulsive synths, neon energy, and hypnotic electro pop harmonies, the Los Angeles quartet-Gabe, Eric Downs, Bo Jacobson, and Sam Skolfield-bring heartbreak to the dance floor. Since emerging in 2013, the group’s distinctive brand of dream pop continues to enchant. Over the course of 2014’s Collide EP and the Afterglow EP in 2015, they landed 5 tracks on the Top 10 of Hype Machine, racked up 4 million-plus cumulative streams, and earned acclaim from outlets such as Dancing Astronaut, Indie Shuffle, The Wild Honey Pie, and many more in addition to placements on prominent YouTube channels such as La Bella Musique and Mr. Suicide Sheep.
