Hailing from Idaho's northern neighbor, Victoria, British Columbia, Loving is a relaxing and melodious pop trio. The poppy tracks are effortless listening, setting a perfect soundtrack to a early morning cup of coffee or a relaxing evening in. Hazy guitars provide the foundation for which the band cuts its tracks. The lyrics are ominous and vague, with just the right amount of reverb to blend perfectly with the instrumentals. No one part of Loving's music overpowers the other, creating a cohesive and natural sound. Loving is joined by Up is the Down is The, a Reno-based solo musician. With a number of instruments, the man behind Up is the Down is The, Andrew Martin, creates catchy indie rock tracks. Martin's music is similarly guitar-driven, but significantly more upbeat. Martin uses looping devices to give the sound of an entire band, even harmonizing with his own vocals at times.
With Up is the Down is The, $10-$12, 8:30 p.m., Neurolux, 111 N. 11th St., neurolux.com.
