North London’s Sorry have today shared their brand new single and video ‘There’s So Many People That Want To Be Loved’ - a thrilling first taste of a future fuller release slated for later in the year. The single received its first national airplay from longterm supporter Steve Lamacq on BBC Radio 6 Music.
‘There’s So Many People That Want To Be Loved’ is the first new music to emerge from Sorry since the 'Twixtustwain' EP arrived in 2021, alongside the official digital release of their brace of 2017 mixtapes 'Home Demo/ns Vol I.' and 'Home Demo/ns Vol. II'.
Commenting on ‘There’s So Many People That Want To Be Loved’ and its accompanying video, Sorry’s Asha Lorenz says: "'There’s So Many People..’ is supposed to be a bit of a sad-funny love song! When we’re out of love we can feel detached and think ‘oh we’ll never be in love again… cry, cry’ but also try and laugh a bit…” She continues, “It’s easy to laugh or think you’ll never be THAT person then the next moment you can feel like the loneliest person in the world.”
Comprised of best friends and co-conspirators Lorenz and Louis O’Bryen, joined by drummer Lincoln Barrett, multi-instrumentalist Campbell Baum, and Marco Pini on electronics, Sorry rose from a thriving scene of bands in London; unveiling a series of mixtapes, sporadic singles and generally experimenting with the disparate tastes and sounds that would eventually give their March 2020 debut album '925' its distinctively modern and apocalyptic sound.
'925' earned a string of near-perfect review scores, A-List national radio playlistings, global media profiles - and was tipped in end of year lists and coverage by DIY, Dork, The Forty Five, Gigwise, The Guardian, Loud And Quiet, Mojo, NME, and more; capping off Sorry’s remarkable rise and cementing their status as one of the most vital and relentlessly creative new British bands of the moment. ‘There’s So Many People Who Want To Be Loved’ marks the beginning of yet another exciting chapter in the story of these open-minded, subversive, and thoroughly 21st century artists.
