Love Hard is Flagland’s third album, and at twenty tracks, speaks volumes to the Brooklyn trio's songwriting stamina and dedication to doing things on their own terms. The recording process was piecemeal, done sporadically by the band between shows, and with the exception of drums at Let ‘Em In Music in Brooklyn, was recorded and mixed in Dooley’s apartment. The themes weaving throughout Love Hard can be summed up with a few key words: Love hard. Fight hard. Live hard. The same can be said for the variance of musical styles. Equal amounts of ferocity are heard on the bipolar “Comfortable Life” and bleak, hard-hitting “Monster,” as on their musical antithesis, the jubilant power-pop “Sugarcube.” Flagland is a multi-dimensional band that is impossible to label or define. Everything is open to interpretation.
