Bittersweethearts Zoe Infante Talks To Rock ‘N’ Load About Their Debut Single “Hate To Love”


Los Angeles-based indie-rockers Bittersweethearts unveil their enticing smoky debut single ‘Hate To Love’.

Co-written by the duo of Zoe Infante and Declan O’Raidy it was recorded at the renowned Strawhorse Studios California and engineered by Thomas Ross Johansen (Wheatus, Snoop Dog, Walter Trout, Bruno Mars). The band brings ethereal Tarantino-esque rock vibes, with an air of Blondie mixing a cocktail with Mazzy Star in a back alley behind CBGB’s in Manhattan’s East Village, heightened with a garnish of Shirley Manson.

“Hate To Love is about being stuck in a toxic relationship that you can’t find a way out of, all the while being unsure you even want to find a way out.” states the alluring front woman Zoe with her enchanting vocals. “Declan got food poisoning the second day of recording and took a trip to the hospital, so it’s about getting through a moment. It was still so fun!” Accompanying the single is the sweeping and visceral video produced by Vincente Cordero of Industrial Films (Richie Kotzen, Mr Big, Black Veil Brides). Taking in the southern California native sweeping landscape it mirrors the wistful heartache inflections of the song, watch. Delving in further and with a hint of what’s to come, guitarist/keys player and producer Declan, “I arranged and recorded songs from home for Zoe to sing over and write lyrics for. I’ve spent quite a few years working shifts at studios that could last up to 21 hours. I ended up learning techniques used on some of my favorite artists’ records, from people who recorded them. Using what I’ve learned so far I believe I was able to put together a well-rounded approach to recording our forthcoming album.” Having made their first official performance at the world renowned NAMM Show in Anaheim, they can be found gracing legendary venues in Whisky A Go Go and The Viper Room on the US West Coast with their captivating show and ventures further afield to come, featuring a winter European tour in 2023.
