Bullet Proof Lovers bleed, sweat, and shred big hooks, loud guitars, a thundering rhythm section, and pop sensibility, ravaged with elements of Fred “Sonic” Smith, Primal Scream, The Hellacopters, and The Hives…
From Faster And Louder:
The Bullet Proof Lovers were formed in 2014 when lead vocalist Kurt Baker and some of his pals were bonding over a shared love for great rock n’ roll. The rest, as they say, is history. Joining Baker in the group is a stacked lineup of experienced musicians. Guitarist Luiyi Costa (Txorlitöhead, Lolas Club), guitarist Juan Irazu (Discípulos de Dionisos, Gran Yate Especial), drummer Joseba Arza (Brigada Criminal, Señor No, Ladislao), and bassist Gonzalo Ibáñez (Nuevo Catecismo Católico, La Perrera) are all fixtures in the Spanish music scene. And if you know anything about the Spanish, you know they’re crazy about rock n’ roll. So it’s no surprise that Bullet Proof Lovers sound like they could rock the roof off of every club or bar in the free world. Essentially Bullet Proof Lovers play a melodic brand of hard rock with a huge sound and huge choruses.
Bullet Proof Lovers is a throwback to a time when it wasn’t a sin to make fun music for people to play loud. Whether it’s Cheap Trick influenced rock n’ roll (“It’ll Be Alright”), thundering arena pop (“She’s Gonna Leave”), or a vintage KB power ballad (“Breaking Down”), the hooks are god-like. And so are the guitar solos! The song title “Never Too Loud” pretty much says it all. And that closing cover of Shrapnel’s “Master Of My Destiny” is so joyfully anthemic; Turn it up and rock out! – Lord Rutledge Faster And Louder
