Ahead of tours with both Waxahatchee and Shannon Lay and the release of debut album ‘In the Break’ (14 September via Mare Records), Los Angeles-based Justin Sullivan’s Night Shop project has released a video for the sweet folk-rock song ‘My Love’.

Justin has spent the past two decades touring as a session drummer with bands including The Babies, the Kevin Morby band and Flat Worms but this melancholy indie-rock track finds him taking centre piece as he opens his heart about love and how although travelling the world is an incredible experience, it can cause issues with personal relationships: ‘Some way south of Bakersfield we start to take a break. Thought about you in the city and how much more could you take?’

With atmospherics falling somewhere between Death Cab for Cutie and The War on Drugs, the heart-on-the-sleeve lyrics are reminiscent of Ryan Adams at his most longing, especially towards the end when Justin repeats how: ‘My love ain’t the kind that dies’.
