Love in all its messy permutations bursts out of every track on The Regrettes’ new album, How Do You Love? Lead singer Lydia Night charts the ups and downs of romance, moving from joyful exuberance to confusion and mixed feelings to, inevitably, regrets. “I wanna walk along the beach, as cheesy as it sounds,” she declares amid the momentous chords of “Coloring Book.” “Anything can happen,” Night insists as sparkling guitars swirl around her. “So just let it happen.” Her initial idealism and hope eventually turn to disappointment on such tracks as “More Than a Month,” whose jangling chords and upbeat tempo mask her newfound melancholy: “All my Joni records, they will get me through, and Patsy helps a little but won’t give me you/So I moved on to write my very own depressing song.” With Greer.
