Ski Lodge Premiere Single “Love is Over Now”

Ski Lodge Premieres New Single "Love is Over Now", debut album "Big Heart" now out on Dovecote records. Ski Lodge play 02/28 in Brooklyn, NY at Glasslands.

Twenty-plus years of stories, twenty-plus years of perfecting music’s craft, Andrew Marr, the multi-instrumentalist, singer and songwriter behind Ski Lodge, has created a deeply personal record.

“I try to write songs honestly, and a lot of the things going on in my head that I struggle with might be deemed ‘dark,’ but I don’t think that means I can’t sing about them in a way that is musically upbeat or poppy,” Marr says, from his home in New York City. It’s a dichotomy that also translates to Marr’s choice for musical moniker. He explains the name Ski Lodge “evoked an image of being warm by a fire, alone or with friends, while outside exists the cold and cruel winter.”

Big Heart, Ski Lodge’s debut full-length, out this summer on Dovecote Records, is Marr’s fullest realization of this hot and cold split. Marr wrote all of the lyrics and music, and played nearly every sound that ended up on the record. However, this was the first time the 26-year-old worked in a professional studio with a producer, the indelible Lewis Pesacov (Best Coast, Fool’s Gold), over several weeks in Los Angeles.

The one exception is the lead single “Just To Be Like You,” which was recorded with the full band in Upstate New York using producer Kevin McMahon (Walkmen, Real Estate).  The song and its accompanying video of cult imagery are an exploration of contrast that fits with both the album and Ski Lodge as a whole.
