“The music is raw and unpretentious, juxtaposed with the vocals, which have an idiosyncratic style and are consistently engaging, while the lyrics are intriguing and intelligent.”
– Nigel Colley, Reflex Artists

Having found themselves a cult following in Manchester, unsigned genre-meddling indie act Liam Browne & The Love seem destined to take on the rest of the country with their eclectic and nutty Northern-rooted sound.
Straight off their upcoming album Forget & Remember, their brand new single ‘Baby Grow’ is an upbeat and bouncy indie rock anthem that provides a small taster of the band’s large sonic scope. A music video is set to drop soon.

Delivered with a raw and untamed Mancunian attitude, the album Forget & Remember is a crazy cocktail of lad rock, hip hop, folk and electronica all recorded in guitarist James Fraser’s garage (later mixed at Noise Boy Studios). Rowetta of the legendary Happy Mondays appears on two of the record’s tracks.

The group have an unusual origin story – frontman Liam was in the Amazon and a Shaman convinced him to sing for the first time initiating his aspirations as a vocalist and a songwriter. He met fellow member James at a Shamanic workshop the following year and from that point on they started making music together.
On top of his work as a musician, Liam Browne has starred in a number of cult movies including acclaimed raunchy Brit flick brilliantlove. He is close to Stereophonics lead singer Kelly Jones after taking the lead role in his music videos for ‘Violins and Tambourines’ and ‘In the Moment’.
“I naively feel like Scorsese finding his De Niro“

Adding to his eventful background, Liam was involved in a near-fatal accident that almost prevented the band from ever coming to be. Whilst jacking his car up by the side of the M60, the vehicle dropped on top of him, leaving him trapped beneath it for two hours. It was only due to breathing techniques learnt though yoga that he was able to conserve oxygen and survive.
Forget & Remember is out 2nd October. Beck, Badly Drawn Boy, Kelly Jones and Rowetta all already own copies of the unreleased album.
The single ‘Baby Grow’ is out 2nd September
