Powered by Audioscrobbler™The Loves formed in 2000 and since then have had over 30 members come and go through their ranks.

Their first release was the 2001 Boobytrap Singles Club double A side Little Girl Blues / She'll Break Your Heart. It was highly praised and reached the Indie Top 20. Number 13 with a bullet.

Their next few releases (2 singles, an EP & their 1st album Love) were released between September 2001 and April 2004 on the highly acclaimed London indie label, Track and Field.

It was during this time that the group became friendly with the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. This friendship meant that in 2002 the group went and performed at the CMJ Music festival in New York. Since 2003 however, Karen O hasn’t been returning their calls.

Also around this era, The Loves recorded 4 sessions for John Peel including one live from Peel Acres on Valentine’s Day 2002 at which the band were fed heart shaped pizzas.

2004 witnessed the release of Love the band's first LP and the break-up of the first totally solid line-up.

After starting to record the second LP Technicolour in 2004 alone, Simon Love finally saw it finished in 2006 and critical acclaimed followed its eventual release in 2007 on Fortuna Pop.

It was preceeded by the single X's and O's that Mark Radcliffe called "Perfect pop music" on his Radio 2 show. Marc Riley agreed with him and asked the band to record a session for his 6Music show.

The Sunday Times made Technicolour it's LP of the Week in February 2007.

Since then The Loves have been cementing their reputation as an amazing live band and have toured extensively.

The band officially retired on the 13th February 2011 following the release of their final album ...Love You.
