TUNE Tom Lumley And The Brave Liaison - Better Than This
Tom Lumley & The Brave Liaison, the Cambridge based alternative rock quartet unveil the release of their new single ‘Better Than This’, released on 6th November via The Fort Records through CD Baby. ‘Better Than This’ follows the singles, ‘New York Paranoia’, ‘Shrink’ and ‘Casual’. All three singles were played by Huw Stephens on his BBCR1 show and the first two were added to the Radio X evening playlist. ‘Shrink’ was also played by Steve Lamacq on his Recommends show on BBC Radio 6 Music, and ‘New York Paranoia’ was added to BBC The Riff Mix on BBC Sounds
New single, ‘Better Than This’ marks a seismic shift towards a harder edged more openly more politicised stance and sound. Tom Lumley & The Brave Liaison have gained a reputation for taking to the stage with monumental energy that’s felt all the way from the front of the crowd to the back of the venue. The first single taken from groups debut EP, ‘Sign Of The Times’, ‘Casual’ was chosen by Huw Stephens as one of his #OnesToWatch2020 for BBCR1 following the band's debut Maida Vale Session last December.
Of ‘Better Than This’ Tom says, “‘Better Than This’ is an anthem for a generation unheard and uncatered for by the organisations of power, not only in the U.K. but around the world. A soundtrack to the current movement of youth who are tired of being ignored, patronised and used as a scapegoat. This song is a powerful declaration that we’ll no longer be ignored and refused a seat at the table which decides our futures. ‘Better Than This’, was recorded, produced and mixed by Jake Day at North Acre Studios and mastered by Grant Berry at Fader Mastering.
Tom Lumley & The Brave Liaison are Tom Lumley, Vocals/Guitar; Jake Day, Guitar; Billy Stewart, Bass/Vocals; and Jonny Thompson, Drums.
