Todays Artist Discovery spotlight lands on London based Pop Punk band Livonia.
This up and coming five piece serve a tasty platter of riffy instrumentation, groovy rhythms and catchy choruses - guaranteed get your head nodding along, whether you want it to or not!
The group formed back in 2019 - starting hot out of the gate with the release of their debut single in October and by quickly carving out a name for themselves on the London live music scene...
Although still a relatively new band, it's clear when listening to Livonia's debut release, 'Talking', that the group has a very promising future ahead within the the realms of UK Pop Punk and beyond.
The well recorded/mixed track begins with an upbeat, boppy instrumental section before dropping straight down to just one riffy guitar line for the start of the verse - ready for vocalist James Bate's enjoyably distinguishable lead vocal to be revealed.
This is quickly followed by the introduction of further layers throughout the verse - well placed to build up the dynamic throughout, creating a real sense of story progression for the listener.
If you're not hooked yet, just wait until the chorus...
The chorus is comprised of a catchy AF vocal hook and a wall of thick sounding instrumentation, tightly locking together to provide a real 'dancey' Don Broco-esk feel - courtesy of guitarists Rob Cone & Mark 'MAC' Craig, bassist Tom Matthews and drummer Chris Walters.
Another verse/chorus later and the bridge comes in - dropping down to an anthemic like vocal with snare driven backbone, reminiscent of that bygone Pop Punk era from 2/3 decades ago.
As the final chorus comes to a close you're left wanting more...
