LISS, Miles Apart.

It was only last Saturday that incipient Danish four-piece LISS stole The Great Escape 2016, and with the likes of Miles Apart contributing to what was an incredibly concise six-song setlist, it’s little wonder. For lifted from their début EP, First, it’s another thoroughly befuddling listen, as tantalising synths taken straight from Prince’s Controversy oleaginously rub themselves up against Villads Tyrrestrup’s typically lubricious bass lines in all the right kinds of ways. A track to rival Try for the figurative accolade that is the Aarhus troupe’s Most Instantly Seductive number therefore, perhaps most pertinently, it’s further proof that Søren Holm can yet be the supremely confident frontman that, seemingly, everybody barring he himself can see him becoming. So, Holm: if you read this prior to tonight, “it’s time for you to wake up” to that particular reality pronto…

First is available now, via XL Recordings, while LISS play London’s Moth Club tonight [INFO/SOLD OUT].
