The label pop has become, perhaps, the least cool tag a band can be labeled with -- far more derisory than prog-rock or even jazz fusion. It’s refreshing then that Ypsilanti trio Lightning Love have grabbed the genre by its proverbial horns and are dazzling the metro Detroit region with their undeniably catchy ditties.

The band -- comprised of front-lady Leah Diehl, drummer (and brother) Aaron Diehl, and guitarist Ben Collins -- formed just a couple of years ago, with Aaron Diehl originally playing guitar and the beats supplied by a drum machine. When said drum machine collapsed during the band’s first live show, a reshuffle was required. Aaron switched to the stool, and Collins was brought in.
