LOVETA Unveils Powerful New Rock-ballad ‘Take It Slow’

Rising singer-songwriter LOVETA has today released her heartfelt new rock-ballad ‘Take It Slow’.

An unapologetic love song, with a slight vintage-rock edge, ‘Take It Slow’ is the first single to be released after LOVETA’s debut EP MORE THAN FUN (2022)which features single ‘All We Got’ (#25 Official NZ Music Hot 40 Singles Chart, #7 Hot 20 Singles Chart, #15 RadioScope Most Added).

This standout artist has once again stepped it up in both songwriting and performance, exploring a more vulnerable side - saying that it’s very much a moment of her “wearing my heart on my sleeve.”

“In addition to my up-tempo dance tracks, it was important for me to begin sharing this side of me. I’m a human being with feelings just like everyone else.” Inspired by personal experience, LOVETA wrote ‘Take It Slow’ in 2021. “I was going through a confusing time in my personal relationships where I felt very unheard and misunderstood. I wanted to capture the complicated nature of love and relationships and how it’s not always a straightforward journey. Sometimes you have to go backwards to move forwards. Writing ‘Take It Slow’ was a cathartic way to make sense of my own feelings. I also listened to a tonne of Lana Del ReyThe Neighbourhood, and Led Zeppelin for inspiration!”  ‘Take It Slow’ is yet another successful collaboration with musician/producer Wulfie (Tim Heeringa). It was recorded and mixed at hisChristchurch studio, then mastered at Auckland’s KOG Studios.

To celebrate the release, LOVETA is headlining a show at Christchurch’s 12 Bar on May 5. For more information and tickets, head to Under The Radar HERE
