“The hottest rock band Yorkshire has produced in a long time” Tickx
“They’re going to be very, very big” DAPPER FM
“Sounding like Black Label Society with a Chili Peppers twist…. following in the footsteps of Alt-J and Pulled Apart By Horses in the crusade to keep the Leeds scene alive.” Rattle Mag
“‘Oh My God I can’t say enough good things about this band….this is what it would sound like if Eddie vedder sang for Incubus or The Red Hot Chilli Peppers” – T.M.F.S
Often hurtling their bodies across stages at break-neck speeds, LNL unleash an earth rocking sound that will make the hairs stand up on the back of your neck, you’ll want to tear your clothes off and dance with strangers. The Yorkshire based alt-rockers have a sound like nobody else on the underground scene right now, although heavily rooted in rock, it extends far beyond to utilise a variety of styles from indie to funk, blues, grunge and rap.
“Full strutting onto the dancefloor wearing a coat made of an entirely new genre – glam-grunge.” -Listen With Monger
“Liz Mann’s vocals have much of the nonchalant hard-arse sass of peak Blondie Debbie Harry, complete with Harry’s richer tone. This is a voice that could go far.” – Halfway 2 Nowhere
A Leeds based band known for their eclectic style of punky, funky, bluesy rock, tinged with a hint of pop. With international and UK radio play under their belt and exciting live performances prone to the odd mid-song poetry break, they’re rapidly forging a name for themselves as one of the most energetic and captivating live bands.
Their latest single Glitter was released in March 2018 to an outstanding reception – a snappy, grunge-tinged singalong track; quickly becoming a favourite among the crowds.
