Loveless Unleashes New Single And We’re “Addicted”

Marking their first new music of 2024 and perfectly timed for Valentine’s Day, Loveless has unleashed their infectious new single, “Addicted.” And yes, yes we are.

While the track explores emotional dependency culminating in addiction (“I lie to you again/She said is it gonna be alright?”), the accompanying music video depicts a life of lush luxury reined in by the group’s success. The portrayal sees vocalist/frontman Julian Comeau and multi-instrumentalist Dylan Tirapelli-Jamail indulge in a life of excess after signing away their artistry to a room of execs. Of course, the standout moment of the track is a seemingly subtle nod to Simple Plan’s 2002 smash hit of the same name. Realizing the toxicity of the relationship, Comeau croons, “You’re bad for me, and I’m bad for you, and it’s plain to see/I’m a dick—.” This line, while acting as the climatic shift of the single, is a wink-wink, nudge-nudge moment to the elder emos who heard Simple Plan frontman Pierre Bouvier sing, “I’m a dick/I’m addicted to you” 20 years ago.

Comeau shares of the new release, “In a world full of generic warehouse performance music videos, it’s always fun to break up that monotony. We’re at a wild time where music is being pulled from the biggest platform in the world, and artist control is at the forefront of discussion, especially when it comes to other people’s ideas of what an artist should do or be, so this video feels especially timely. It’s exploring the darker side of how it can feel as an artist, going into these rooms with big execs where nothing is quite as it seems. Feeling trapped, either by yourself or others, in a dream that can feel like a nightmare, which has a lot of parallels to the lyrics of the song itself and its themes of blame and self-sabotage.”

Loveless is scheduled to hit the road with Waterparks on the SNEAKING OUT OF HEAVEN Tour later this month before they appear for back-to-back performances at Reading & Leeds Festival in the UK this summer. Check out their full touring schedule below and grab tickets to see them live here.
