Love Seats is musical project created by Ashton Gary and Ethan Wilcox, based out of Oklahoma City. The indie-rock duo specializes in writing melancholic guitar pop songs with lush orchestration and recording them to tape.

After listening to bands like Ultimate Painting, Whitney and Andy Shauf, the duo wanted to create music in the likes of those artists. Gary and Wilcox bought an 8-track tape machine and started recording demos of their songs while dissecting and studying the production of their favorite records.

Eight months later, the group recorded its debut record, “These Days,” which was released in October.
