Bands to keep a watch out for in the future: #4: Liddington

LiddingtonOne of the bands I’ve been following for a while are Oxford based Liddington, who have just released a new EP on their myspace page. One of the few add requests that I accept on mySpace, they seem to have a nice sound that could see them go far, as they’re quite radio friendly whilst still a touch different to everything else.

The band take their name from the view of the hill outside where Phil (guitar + vocals) and Danny (bass + keys) first began writing music together at the age of 16. They were joined later by Paul (guitar) and Andy (drums), united by an urge to “write striking, timeless songs”.

Creating epic songs that just crawl under your skin and make you remember them, sounding like a rawer, guitar driven Keane, and whilst not as anthemic, they do have some quality songs that will have everyone craving for more.

They’ve supported such bands as Switches and Kubichek! so far in 2007, and have a headlining set at the Camden Barfly in mid May, and look like they could be a band to watch in coming months. Whilst they won’t be gracing the pages of NME for a few months yet, they could be big next year when they have an album and a bit of buzz.

Check them out if you get a chance!
