Danish quartet Liss are back with the single “Sorry,” recently accompanied by a music video. It’s the first from their forthcoming EP First, which is set to be released through XL Recordings on May 13.
“Sorry” sees the young four-piece continuing down the path they laid for themselves last summer with the split seven-inch single “Try”/”Always.” The new track is an indie pop song dripping with electronic influence. The chorus soars with Søren Holm’s distinct and almost nasally voice while the production lays into an infectious beat and other striking percussive noises. It may take a few listens to familiarize yourself to Holm’s voice but once adjusted it is as refreshingly unique as it is powerful, and it works perfectly within the greater context of Liss’ sound.
“Sorry” is the sound of a young band settling into its groove, and if this single is any indicator, Liss may well be ready to make a big splash in the indie music scene. This should definitely be a band to keep your eye on in 2016.
