Ears Wide Open: Unloved

What happens when two movie dudes get together with a modern-day Nancy Sinatra? Unloved. The Los Angeles trio pairs David Holmes, who composed the soundtracks for the three “Oceans” films, and Keefus Ciancia, who is currently composing with T-Bone Burnett for “True Detective,” with singer-songwriter Jade Vincent. The three met at a Tuesday night residency at the Rotary Room in Los Feliz in 2013 and eventually convened at VOX Studios, where their classic 1960s girl groups-meets-psychedelic pop aesthetic came to fruition. Now they’re teasing the March 4 release of their debut album, “Guilty of Love” (which follows a four-song EP they released last fall), with a new video for the single “When a Woman is Around.” Holmes and Ciancia’s cinematic backgrounds are evident both on the track and in the video. The song plays like it’s out of a ’60s spy flick; it’s reminiscent of things like Bond, go-go boots, Twiggy and smoking while pregnant.
