Part heroin sunset, part shotgun blast, Lovecartel is the brainchild of Ash Kernen and Anthony Phillips, two brothers who have coalesced around music’s redemptive power and their undying passion for songcraft. Founded in 2012, the Philadelphia duo draws on their inspiring, yet sometimes tragic, breadth of life experiences to create emotionally-potent electro-rock that drips with swagger and fiery introspection. Their unique sound melds infectious rhythms, distorted and ambient guitars, and synthetic overtones over which Kernen delivers poignant and punchy vocal musings on love, war, and everything in between. The result is a sound that has been praised for its distinction while being familiar enough to recognize their list of influences which include the Cold War Kids, The Black Keys, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, 90s Hip Hop, 70s soul, and the future electronic frontier.
