We’d like to introduce you to Liss, a mesmerising and original Danish four piece that have been gathering pace for a while now. Their smooth vocals and soulful melodies are old school with a modern twist, layered over a groovy edge and a sound that is already winning praise from the likes of Pharrell Williams. They released their first EP in May on XL Recordings, First, and followed it up with a single version and video of the track ‘Miles Apart’. First is a collection of inimitably charming pop songs enveloped in the 80-Blue-Eyed Soul robe, with a Nordic touch. Despite their youthful energy and boyband set-up, Liss have emerged in the more experimental space of guitar-pop, and are as captivating to watch in their new video as they are to listen to in their short but sweet first records. The group are set to play across Europe this summer, and are already gaining critical acclaim for their first offerings of well written, original pop, and we’re already holding out for the album. Catch them in the next few months at their tour dates below!
