“Lovesick is what pop promised to be, in the ’80s or’90s, whenever we were young, Velvet Underground, Echo & the Bunnymen, when our identity was externalized in our music, not in our selves. Rollicking. Romantic. Eerie.” - Lisa Crystal Carver

Goolkasian, also known as The Texas Governor, of the notorious and cutting edge trio, The Elevator Drops, is back with new music. Lovesick, a creative collaboration with painter and chanteuse Heather Joy Morgan.
An overdose of inventive love songs exploring the splendor & madness of love. A creative Rock & Roll experiment. A light & dark electro-cabaret. Lovesick’s debut release, “...hoping this is the end...”, was written and recorded in the anxiety of pandemic isolation and yet it feels free-spirited and fun.
