[PLAYS THE HITS] Carolyn Berk’s Lovers has had many incarnations over the years. She has used the name to describe her forlorn solo folk-pop project and a free-wheeling rock band. But something stuck when the project coalesced into a meaty, synth-driven three-piece and released Lovers\' fourth album, Dark Light, in 2010. The joy factor doubled. The intensity upped. Understated love songs became huge dance-club anthems. While Dark Light was more minimal and exacting than its fantastic predecessor, I Am The West, the trio’s live show gradually became a must-see. Expectations for the band’s forthcoming record, then, are off the charts. Will it be packed with Berk’s uber-catchy pop songs or sprawling electronica? Will it be personal or political? Will it eschew guitars completely? It’s still too early to answer these questions, but expect a sneak preview of new material tonight. Also, expect to have Lovers’ songs stuck in your head for at least a month afterward.
