"These aren't just your average pop tunes – they're pop tunes with a bold purpose," says NewReleaseToday.com (http://www.newreleasetoday.com/userprofile_reviewssinglepost.php?review_id=25338&user_id=130961) as CrossRhythms.co.uk (http://www.crossrhythms.co.uk/articles/music/LoveCollide_Two_sisters_from_North_Carolina_Tired_Of_Basic/62387/p1/) echoes that the album is "brimming over with radio friendly hooks and lyrics which are a bold statement of faith" and Today's Christian Entertainment (https://todayschristianent.com/lovecollide-tired-of-basic/) adds that "the album is a good one to rejuvenate your faith in a unique way that isn't just basic."
With the new single, video and album emerging after a season filled with doubt, loss, depression and uncertainty, LOVECOLLIDE's Tired Of Basic, produced by Riley Friesen (Family Force 5, Group 1 Crew) and Matt Dally (Superchick, Jamie Grace), is meant to be a revolution against boredom, mediocrity and status quo living.
"That's the theme, that's the mission--an extraordinary life," states Brooke. "Living in a way where you can never be labeled, like Jesus. Starting revival by being the light, being different, showing who Jesus is through us."

About LOVECOLLIDE: Having started a band together when they were just tweens, Nashville-based LOVECOLLIDE siblings Brooke and Lauren share a passion for revival and extraordinary, bold living for Jesus. The duo first hit the Billboard charts in 2016 with the song "Mother of the Son of God (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Gz2fMDHkN8)" and have garnered two top-20 album nods (2014, 2016) from NewReleaseToday.com.
