Album Review Liss - I Guess Nothing Will Be The Same

Rejoicing and elated: a respectful commemoration of a lost talent.

Liss - I Guess Nothing Will Be The Same

In the wake of tragedy, it can be challenging to know what to do next. Following the devastating loss of their frontman Søren Holm last May, Danish outfit Liss took some time out. And ultimately - here, releasing the debut album they created before his passing - they chose celebration. ‘I Guess Nothing Will Be The Same’ honours Søren’s talent: it’s a vibrant, heartfelt tribute. ‘Nobody Really Cares’ breezily flounces into life, while ‘Sure’ practically sparkles with its pop-embracing production. It’s a soulful and joy-inducing sequence of events, radiating with laidback, roguish lyricism. ‘Boys In Movies’, which calls upon Nilüfer Yanya for a verse, is a standout track for the pure fun it delivers. Liss lean upon R&B influences to add some effervescence to their particular brand of pop, flush with energy. From the grooving, slick notes of ‘We Made It’ to the electronic-reliant, brooding ‘Dead Flower’, Liss perform the perfect exercise in how to make an album full of sizzling anthems. It’s rejoicing and elated: a respectful commemoration of a lost talent.
