Since 2004, Philly-based rock band Liam and Me has been working to create perfect pop songs. Matt O’Dowd (lead vocals, keyboard), Dan Larkin (guitar, vocals), and Kevin McKenzie (bass) are the kind of musicians who love a great hook paired with a great arrangement, big hits with a sense of music history. So far they have toured the US with their catalogue of hot dance tracks and cruising anthems with an overwhelmingly positive response and major label attention.
Taking cues from ’80s new wave bands like The Cars and The Cure, synth rock pioneers, classic pop song writers, and contemporary indie rock, Liam And Me hit the studio this year with producers Wired All Wrong (Hellogoodbye, White Tie Affair, Beck) and mixer Mark Endert (Maroon 5, The Fray, Fiona Apple). Their eagerly awaited debut will hit the stores sometime in 2009, pleasing fans of Shiny Toy Guns, Your Vegas, Kill Hannah, or The Sounds. If you prefer inventive pop accessibility and all-out fun to the arty-pretension and hipster attitude that is running rampant in modern rock, give them a listen.
