The Regrettes - How Do You Love?

A listen that encapsulates that Polaroid summer we’re all after.

The Regrettes - How Do You Love?

The Regrettes’ second full-length is all about finding the bright side of a broken heart. Following a spoken word intro examining what love is, ‘California Love’ enters with vibrant guitars and fun lyrics, marking itself as the perfect summer road-trip track, bringing a no-big-deal coolness to pop-punk chords and gang vocals. The airy summer vibes continue with ‘I Dare You’ - a song with such buoyancy it sounds like it was written in one easy breezy writing session. Further down the track list, the band get rid of someone with the words “you can’t love me, so go love you” and ponder a reconciliation on ‘More Than a Month’. Unfortunately, none of the later tracks hit with the same urgency as the first few. The album is a fun listen, still, and one that encapsulates that Polaroid summer we’re all after.
