Captured Tracks / Remote Control Records are pleased to announce the signing of Brattleboro trio THUS LOVE with the release of their first single, ‘Inamorato.’ Self-recorded at their home in Vermont, the song serves as a timely and triumphant introduction to the post-punk band: a tale of refusing to give into dark thoughts even when facing the grimmest of circumstances. It’s a feeling the band not only relates to but has lived in full: all three members identify as trans and have spent years struggling on the margins.
Says lead singer Echo Mars (she/her): “For us, THUS LOVE is much more than a band. We all came from small towns without many people like us, and it wasn’t until we arrived in Brattleboro and started playing music together that we found a community to truly call our own.”
The accompanying video, directed by Eleanor Harmon and Brigid Kennison, plays off the song’s dark subject matter with a bit of sardonic humor as the band tempts fate by performing at what might be their own funeral.
