LibraLibra are four renegades from Brighton, UK, who when combined are a force to be reckoned with. Exotic melodies and frenetic, lyrical flows meet tribal beats and broken guitars. There is an unease in every song that leaves you hanging on to vocalist Beth Cannon’s every inflection; each new chorus cementing the ambition and talent of this intriguing bunch.
Cannon’s vocal ability has received deserved accolade throughout her career with her command of script prompting comparisons to Kate Bush and Bjork. Some may recognise the voice from Simon Raymonde’s Lost Horizons (Bella Union) where Cannon wrote and performed on lead track ‘Bones’, and will be fronting the live band when they hit festivals this summer.
LibraLibra combines a melodic mastery akin to Asha Bhosle, with a lyrical flow that would leave MIA burned. The band’s mastery of their instruments creates a unique cacophony of beautiful noise whilst never detracting from the catchy melodies and infectious beats that smack you right in the holes.
