Liu Bei - Infatuation (ParadYse/Transgressive Records)
|Liu Bei - Infatuation|
Release Date: 7th July 2014
Not many bands are named after Chinese Warlords with massive ears but Liu Bei are and it sure beats anything starting with The. The London based act are ready to provide those massive ears with a new single in the shape of 'Infatuation' which is a sparkling, beach cave of a tune. To explain that a little better, this song shimmers like the clear waters of a rock pool with the reflected sunlight of the dawn dancing on the surface. You could draw comparisons to Elbow if you wanted but despite the gently epic similarities there is a more rural, elemental feel to the music that is simply beautiful. So what we have is a band named after a Chinese Warlord with massive ears, some gorgeously elemental songwriting and a real sense of understated grandeur. Surely that's enough to keep you happy?
