Indie Emo band Innerlove of Long Island, NY have announced their debut album, Roscoe, set for release on June 9th, 2023 through Refresh Records. The record was self-recorded by the band in a secluded house in upstate NY and focuses on dealing with the changes that come into your life.
Building off their Indie and Emo roots, the band work in elements of Americana to create a unique sound. Opener and lead single, “Ain’t Who I Wanna Be,” is out now. The video for the song gives a behind-the-scenes look into the making of Roscoe.
Speaking about the lyrics, vocalist/guitarist Ryan O’Rourke states:
‘Ain’t Who I Wanna Be’ is mostly about how I became something I swore I’d never be. I have a problem dealing with negatives, I always have.
Formed in 2019 in the wake of other projects, Innerlove is a collaboration of music and long-time friendship. The band made their debut in 2020 with the EP, Fine By Me, followed by a string of singles. On Roscoe, the quartet has significantly expanded their sonic palette.
