Rocksucker was impressed by the by-turns-shouty-and-melodic, epically inclined rockingness of north London power trio LTNT when we saw them play at Fake Club’s Fake TV launch night, so we fired some questions over to the band’s front man Liam Lever in order to find out more…
How would you describe your music, if pushed?
A friend described us as heavy Jeff Buckley. I like that.
Where are you based, and what do you use to record with?
We’re based in north London. We record in Luton with a fellow called Mat Collis. Fucking legendary character. We also record new songs at practice using Ben’s iPhone under a jumper.
Are you signed to a label? If so, how did you come to their attention?
No. The only label we have is the one off an apple.
Is there a full album in the works? If so, what can you tell us about it? (Feel free to be as abstract as you like…)
Yes there is. We’ve short listed it from everything we’ve ever written as a band and we’re excited. Our producer comes back off tour in July so we start recording then. It’s going to be special. For us at least.
Where can we hear your music online?
There’s a free download waiting for you over at www.ltnt.co.uk .
Which have been your most exciting gigs and/or overall moments so far?
It’s hard to say. The best gigs are the ones when everything aligns. Just in your own bubble as a three. I remember the feeling well but can’t recall the situation. I wasn’t there.
Got any more coming up? (Gigs, that is…)
Got our single launch on Friday. So much foreplay for that one. There’s Camden Rocks Festival on June 1st, then we have the Black Heart June 19th, The Monarch on Glastonbury weekend and a tour July/August hopefully with Nymph.
Are there any obscure and/or up-and-coming acts that you’d like to recommend or give a shout-out to?
Not that obscure but Keebo, Nymph, God Damn and Messenger. There’s a few to ride out your next hangover.
Finally, if you were forced to spend the rest of your days in solitary confinement, but were allowed to bring the entire works of five different artists along to tide you over, whose would you choose?
Pantera, everything Mike Patton has done if that’s allowed, Neil Young (so you’d get Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young too), Talking Heads and Led Zeppelin, because I’ve never ever listened to them in case this exact situation arose, so I’d have something new that was definitely good.
Liam Lever, thank you.
