British duo Litany (aka Beth Cornell and Jake Nicolaides) are pleased to announce their new track ‘Flaws’, released today, 19th April 2017. Fans can stream the single via Spotify and download on iTunes now.
The first track from their forthcoming debut EP, ‘Flaws’ displays a pure and fragile sound with emotive lyrics and a beat-heavy backdrop. Cutting through the melody is lead singer Beth’s vocal, which is clear as a diamond: “Everybody else has flaws, so when will you see yours”; the band have once again delivered a fresh, future sound for their audience.
“We chose Flaws as the first single because we’ve both been through scenarios where you realise the person you love actually damaging you and your self-esteem. It’s an internal monologue accompanied by pitch bent choirs and it’s perfect as the first taste of our EP.” – Litany
For the past few years, Harrogate-based Litany have been bringing their own brand of intelligent alt-pop to the foray. Born in the 90s and brought up on a musical diet ranging from The Strokes and George Michael to Kate Bush and Jamiroquai, the two piece alt-pop duo paid their dues in cover bands at school only until they realised that they had a passion for something different.
One of their early tracks ‘Woman’ – a collaboration with friend and rising Chicago-based rapper Appleby – grew into an underground indie hit and reached #1 on HypeMachine. Their last single ‘Work This Out’ then earned them a growing fanbase, over one million Global Spotify streams and a Top 10 on the Viral Charts in the UK, Canada and Germany. The single also received a host of UK media support from the likes of Radio 1, BBC Introducing, 6 Music and Radio X alongside syncs in Made In Chelsea and MTV’s TV series of cult-hit ‘Scream’.
