I Do Not Love (stylized as I DO NOT LOVE.) is a prolific project based out of Mansfield, Massachusetts that pays homage to the pioneering goth and post-punk melody makers. Mastermind, Carl Gregory Miller’s stage name is an abridged version of his original pseudonym, I Do Not Love You, I Love What I Thought That You Were. Miller’s output as I DO NOT LOVE. has been consistently dark and dreary that’ll perk up the ears of post-punk and goth devotees.
You Regret Everything (stylized as you regret everything.) opens with the sprawling New Order-esque “hgh.” Melodic and moody, the track is vintage mid-80’s post-punk with bright arpeggiated guitars and Miller’s Ian Curtis/Lescop desolate vocals. “ttldwnr” is a fluttery dream-pop track that’s ripe with gloom and dread. Emotionally, the goth-y synth-laden “ssr” is the heaviest track on the EP, with Miller’s vocals croaking as low as the deepest depths of the Earth.
Its noted that Miller is so prolific, he released a triple LP a week after you regret everything. and is available now via his Bandcamp page.
