If I were to draw a Venn diagram with the circles labeled “summer jam” and “breakup song,” the overlap would be mighty small, but that doesn’t mean the two categories are mutually exclusive. With their first Booth feature, Love Is Lost, New Zealand’s Summer Thieves have managed to create an ear-pleasing hybrid of the two. Frontman Jake Barton spends his soulful verses grieving the end of a relationship, but the upbeat, reggae-infused grooves provided by crewmates Adam Spencer, Johnny Ward and Angus Cleland ensure that the cut’s overall mood is light and sunny. Has this loosie piqued your interest? Then keep it locked; Summer Thieves have yet to announce their next project, but we’ll keep you posted on their plans as further details emerge.
