INTERVIEW: The Lovers Key Unveils Vintage Sound with “Here Today Gone Tomorrow” at Respectable Street

New Times: Broward/Palm Beach – “Wanted: a ’60s-influenced singer looking to participate in a project with a sense of energy and soul,” read a Craigslist ad posted by local musical whiz Christopher Moll two years ago.

Moll had gotten the itch to start crafting music again after stepping away from a bustling career with his orchestral, cinematic creation the Postmarks. He was the driving force behind this Burt Bacharach-idolizing trio based out of Pompano Beach. It churned out three records in three years (of which Moll served as the principal engineer, producer, and composer), and eventually, Moll got burned out. He decided to take a self-imposed break from the limelight…

REVIEW: The Lovers Key – “Here Today Gone Tomorrow”

Written by admin on . Posted in News, Press, Releases, Review

Dagger – I’m a big fan of Florida’s cocktail pop band The Postmarks and the few side projects I’ve heard by the members have always been solid. Add The Lovers Key to that list. This band is led by Postmark Christopher Moll where he and his pal Maco Monthervil create 12 songs of pop music with elements of Northern Soul, indie pop/rock and whatever they hell they’re doing in England both currently and in years past. And this isn’t simply some homage to the music they love, these songs are VERY good. The whole thing seems pretty effortless simply because you have two guys who are supremely talented and have a serious love for the music they’re creating. Right down to the artwork on the cd, these guys know what they’re doing (Mark Deming at Allmusic suggested that the band release the songs “in the stack of pre-weathered singles marketed to fans of Northern Soul.” Hmm…..time for me to start a new record label?). Opening cut “Saturday Night” kicks things off righteously then kicks into the grittier “Who’s the One You Love” then right into the moodier “In a Perfect World.” Elsewhere we hear the poppy stomp of the self-deprecating “Maybe I’m Not Good Enough for You” and the lullaby closer, “Another Night.” Some 60’s aficionados might want things a little rougher around the edges and with that I say go to labels like Norton or Crypt but if you want an excellent pop record with a nice mix of styles then pick up HERE TODAY GONE TOMORROW…

Surviving the Golden Age – Hailing from South Florida, The Lovers Key is made up of Christopher Moll and Maco Monthervil. Their debut Here Today, Gone Tomorrow fuses 60s pop-rock and soul. It’s Maco’s distinctively soulful voice that adds depth and a new dimension to the buoyantly pop melodies. The single “Saturday Night” is a perfect example of this on the album, as the record starts with a wonderfully Motown tune. The premise of the song’s lyrics is indeed relatively simple but in this way is reminiscent of how this was such a success when teamed with the right voice and rhythm, when Motown was at its height. The same can be said for the track “Maybe I’m Not Good Enough,” as it has the lyrical attributes of a bubbly pop song but is made more compelling by Monthervil’s powerful voice…
