The Skinny: Enterprising Long Island foursome Love, Robot, who describe their hook-filled, gritty and unforgettable music as “black pop,” have released their new album B.A.D. today, June 24. The album is currently streaming in full via SoundCloud – listen to it below.

Love, Robot are an ambitious quartet of self-starters who don’t pay lip service to the concept of DIY simply because they are too busy being DIY; that is, they are “doing” instead of “saying.” They do everything themselves – from releasing their music to creating their album art to making their videos to designing their merch to conceptualizing photo shoots.

In the course of a year, Love, Robot have been turning heads and grabbing ears with their darkly-tinted alt rock, which is laced with pop melodies and harmonies and slices with a razor-sharp, hard rock edge. The video for their song “Fire Escape” received MTV and VH1 airplay late last year, as well.
