The Connecticut indie rock scene is scrappy and dedicated to burning its mark into the vibrant sound of the North East. At the heart of it all lies OVLOV, a rare breed of band dedicated to the finer things in life, plugging in, turning the amps way up, and giving the world what it needs… blistering loud rock shows.

2013 marks the band's long awaited and heavily anticipated full length debut Am, set for a spring/summer release on Exploding In Sound Records (Pile, Speedy Ortiz, Fat History Month). Produced, mixed, and mastered by Michael Thomas III, the album is sure to drop jaws of fans old and new. OVLOV
will head out in support of Am with labelmates Grass Is Green this May.

Lead by Steve Hartlett (vocals/guitar), a true champion of the underground CT scene since his high school days, OVLOV formed during the summer of 2008, striking upon a mix of early 90's indie guitar rock, slow burning power pop, and swarming walls of shoegaze distortion. The band has released several EPs since, "Crazy Motorcycle Jump" (2009) and "What's So Great About The City" (2011) with an ever evolving line-up of conspirators including Theo Hartlett (drums), Jon Hartlett (bass), Michael Falcone (drums), Quentin Ham (guitars), Dave Berliner (bass) and countless others that have joined the band live. Steve Hartlett is the glue that holds everything together, an exceptional songwriter that manages to infuse impossibly catchy melodies under the thickest slabs of distortion and feedback. OVLOV return listeners to the glorious days of Dinosaur Jr., My Bloody Valentine, Pixies, Hum, and Pavement while reaching within to create a unique sound that encapsulates the charm of destructive hooks and buzzing riffs with the honest delivery of Hartlett's dazzling vocals.
