Edinburgh natives Liimo (meaning a little bit more) release their new single ‘Raincheck’ on May 8th through B-Unique Records.
Opening with bright plucky guitar and lead singer Kieran O’Brien’s evocative and subtle vocals, ‘Raincheck’ cascades into a chorus filled with a huge synth riff and an undeniable hook.
Speaking about the track, Liimo says: “‘Raincheck’ is about making more time for the person you really should be making time for. The daily traffic of life throws up so many obstacles that you end up losing out on moments for just the two of you. ‘Raincheck’ says, ‘F**k it, let’s stay in and get a takeaway. We actually wrote this before the Covid-19 outbreak and although it wasn’t exactly planned, it might just turn into an anthem for staying indoors – something we’re all very used to by now!”
‘Raincheck’ follows the release of ‘All I Do’ and ‘Thinking About It’, which cemented Liimo’s talent for writing killer pop music and saw them gather incredible pick up from media tastemakers such as The Line Of Best Fit, The Scotsman ‘Under The Radar’, Earmilk, Euphoria Magazine and Record of the Day to name a few, as well as support from major DPSs.
Having toured with LA alt rock band The Mowglis earlier this year, Liimo were due to head out on a headline UK tour this spring, including a date at London’s Servant Jazz Quarters. However, owing to the current global pandemic regarding COVID-19, the dates have been postponed to Autumn 2020.
With over 3 million across all platforms, Spotify support on New Music Friday (UK and Japan), Your Office Stereo, Discover Weekly, Chilled Pop Hits, All New All Now, New Pop Revolution, Apple playlisting on Today At Apple, In My Room, Mellow Days, New Music Daily and a Best New Pop play by BBC Radio 1’s Adele Roberts, Liimo’s status as one of the UK’s most exciting new bands has only solidified.
With the release of ‘Raincheck’, the band continue this trajectory skyward. Previous singles include ‘Old School’, ‘If You Love Me’, ‘Pink In Heaven‘, ‘Get Weird’ featuring LA artist Lizzy Land and their debut single ‘Pineapple Radio’. Previous online support has come by way of The 405, CLASH, who hailed their debut single “an intoxicating beginning”, EARMILK, 1883 Magazine, Euphoria Magazine, and When The Horn Blows to name a few. Last year, they covered Usher’s ‘U Remind Me’ for Mahogany’s COVERS sessions. Watch it here – https://youtu.be/7eh_9gEXERE
