Los Angeles-based pop duo Only Bricks have just premiered another track from their forthcoming debut EP, ‘Foundation.’ “(Your Love Gets Me) High” premiered on Atwood Magazine earlier in the week, who called it a “sunny anthem,” and a “jolly embrace of love’s pure intoxication.” Fans can listen to the track here.
“Overall, we wanted the song to exude that giddiness you feel when you’re falling in love, and we think we accomplished that in both the writing and the production, taking some cues from 1960s Motown and R&B,” says singer Anne DiGiovanni. “The bridge is a particularly lighthearted moment, with the repeated “doo, doo, doos” evoking the sound of Motown backup singers and the imagery of a person happily bopping through their day, oblivious to the world around them because they are so in love.”
“Like many of the songs that we write, this one started out as a melodic idea for the main hook in the chorus and some placeholder words,” says instrumentalist Joseph Lewczak. “That initial lyric idea eventually morphed into ‘Don’t need no drugs to feel good, your love makes me high,’ and then it sat in what I call our ‘song well’ for about a year. When we finally came back to it, the lyrics and the rest of the song were finished in just a couple of hours, although we disagreed quite a bit about whether love should make you high or get you high. Anne won that argument and we decided to go with ‘get.’”
To celebrate the release of their debut EP ‘Foundation’ on 4/20, Only Bricks will be hosting a record release party at the Peppermint Club in Los Angeles on 4/21. Tickets are still available here.
Santa Monica, California based indie pop duo Only Bricks are getting ready to spread their sun-soaked anthems with a debut EP entitled ‘Foundation’ to be released this spring. Comprised of husband and wife songwriting duo Anne DiGiovanni and Joseph Lewczak, the pair hope this is the EP that announces them to the LA songwriting scene.
‘Foundation’ is an eclectic and unique collection of rock, pop, and dance, mixed with their own individual and uplifting musical sensibility. Loaded with songs that will inspire joy with bright, multi-faceted melodies, poppy hooks, and lyrics that tell relatable stories of love, desire, and connection, Only Bricks’ ‘Foundation’ is destined to be the soundtrack to your summer romance. “These songs are the real stories we lived through as we separately uprooted our lives on the east coast and found each other again in California,” says Anne, “and we can’t wait to share them.”
