Cleveland Indie-Rock band Ottawa released their captivating new single and accompanying video for “No More Love Songs” yesterday. “No More Love Songs” is the third release, and focus track, of the band’s six-song series; set to trickle out throughout the rest of the summer.
“I got to really thinking about what my dating life has been and how things are in this generation with the dating apps and things like that for people in their 20s and early 30s now,” explains Dale, on the concept and writing of the song. “My wheels were turning about it for awhile then sometime last summer I was driving and I just sang the chorus. Some of it might come across as cheesy, but it just felt really good off the tongue. So I brought it to the guys and we did our thing and Will (Hooper, guitarist) came up with an awesome riff and we built the song out of it. I think we all sensed there was something super special about it and something kind of immediate.”
More Manchester than Midwest, Ottawa creates ambitious Indie Rock that’s equal parts steel-town grit and new wave gloss. Their energetic performances and captivating hooks have helped them generate a buzz far beyond their hometown of Cleveland, Ohio.
After writing and recording for the past twelve months, the band is taking their passion to an elevated level as they set out to promote the releases this summer.
