Simon Love (born Simon Stone) is a Welsh singer/songwriter best known for fronting '60s-influenced indie pop group the Loves, who released four full-length albums and several singles EPs from their inception in 2000 to their dissolution in 2011.
After the Loves broke up, Simon played guitar in Knickers, who released a 7" EP on Elefant Records in 2012. He contributed a few covers (including songs by Daniel Johnston and They Might Be Giants) to compilations before beginning work on solo material. Simon Love's debut solo full-length, It Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time, appeared on Fortuna Pop in 2015. The album was a bitter, obscenity-filled, bleakly humorous collection of ornately orchestrated pop songs about the dark side of love, relationships, and friendships. ~ Paul Simpson, Rovi
