Donovan Wolfington is apparently a person. He’s out there somewhere, but that’s a story for another day… This is about the band from New Orleans who borrowed his name: four guys making poppy punk rock, with some heavy parts and some happy parts and some sad parts. They didn’t name their album How to Treat the Ones You Love by happenstance. It serves as an exploration of their own lives’ difficulties and lessons, and an honest, literate way to attempt to be a slightly less terrible person in a not-always-so-great world.
Featured song: “Sadhead” // Listen to the audio podcast for more music and interview.
Donovan Wolfington’s album, How To Treat The Ones You Love, is available now.
