"Love Love Love" is the debut single from New Zealand folk band Avalanche City. Released in 2011, the song reached number one in the Official New Zealand Music Chart and charted for 19 weeks.[1] The song was also certified Platinum x2.[2]

The song was originally released as a free download in October 2010, where it was downloaded over 11,000 times until it was taken down in February 2011. The song was then used for a station promotion ad for TV2. The wider exposure lead to the song being released for sale in March, after which it debuted at number 1 on the official singles chart.[3]

Music video[edit]

A music video for the song was released in December 2010. Directed by Josh Smith, the video is a whimsical animated tale of two penguins who experience an adventure at sea.[4][5]


Songwriter Dave Baxter won the 2011 APRA Silver Scroll Award for the song.[6] It was also nominated for Single of the Year at the 2011 New Zealand Music Awards.[7]
