Vocalist Mitchy Collins and guitarist Jordan Greenwald began writing songs together and released a single prior to officially forming their group. “broken,” which was released before drummer Sam Price became a member, enjoyed a 76-week run, including the No. 1 spot, on Billboard’s Alternative Songs chart. Based out of Los Angeles, the trio is promoting their latest single “i should be happy,” which touches on how difficult life can be, even when it seems that everything is going smoothly. lovelytheband stays in touch with fans on Facebook (, Twitter ( and Instagram (

Q. What is your favorite vacation destination?

Mitchy Collins: Hawaii. Experience all the food you can, and learn to surf, for sure.

Jordan Greenwald: One of my favorite trips I’ve ever been on was when the band was invited to Sir Richard Branson’s Necker Island in the British Virgin Islands. A pretty unforgettable few days.

Q. Where would you like to go that you have never been to before?

Sam Price: I would love to go to Japan. I’ve never been, but I’ve heard nothing but amazing things from friends who have been. Hopefully, we get to play over there soon. Oh, and also the Maldives, ‘cause how can you not put that down?


Q. Where have you traveled to that most reminded you of home?

Jordan Greenwald: Probably New York. It’s like my second home, because of family that live there. It is a lot like Los Angeles in a lot of ways, but then different in so many more ways, which makes it so fun to be in.

Q. What is your best and/or worst vacation memory?

Sam Price: I have so many great vacation memories, but if I could pick one, it was several years ago driving up from Los Angeles to Lake Tahoe in a minivan with my whole family and staying right on the lake for a couple days. One of my worst? There are bad moments, but I’ve never had a bad vacation, thankfully. Because at the end of the day you’re on vacation! What do you have to complain about?
