"I personally love playing intimate venues like [Omeara], so it was really exciting to be able to do that again in London," bassist KJ Ward told NME. "Our first tour was basements of houses and smaller clubs, so it’s very nostalgic to go back to [our] roots and play a venue like that."
"We all kind of prefer it – just so we can get to know the fans a little more." added band drummer Juice Welch.
With members who are "barely old enough to drive" as described by Third Coast Review, The Backseat Lovers' new record "doesn’t sound like something a bunch of teenagers dreamt up, instead standing as a pretty remarkable artistic effort" the publication said in its review of "Waiting to Spill".
Living in a daydream of their wild Omeara gig, people were singing so loud that the band couldn't even hear themselves anymore. In an interview with NME, they share that "It’s a very beautiful thing. It’s kind of hard to put into words." shares Joshua. "It’s just fun to be in one space as a group and be collectively in the moment, and having a good time all together." added Juice.
