LIIMO, TAMZENE and LILURA at Tooth and Claw, Inverness.
Saturday night proved yet again that Scotland is full of amazing talent. Three acts that were similar in style but unique in their skills and performances, graced the stage of the Tooth and Claw venue.
First up was Lilura (aka Jemma Tweedier) aided by Kenna Ross on the keyboards and a Roland octapad. Indeed all the acts represented the modern, mainstream, pop sound. Lilura interpretation of this brought with it electronic beats, prerecorded harmonies , sound effects, complex melody lines complimented by smooth and catchy lyrics. Last year’s ‘Monster’ was given and airing, so too ‘Disaster’ which we hope may get an official release this year too.
The audience appeared to develop a clear desire to dance as Tamzene came on stage, she reciprocated with poppy “groovy” beats. Her beautiful soulful voice complimented the “on point” harmonies of her co-writer and bandmate, Brandon Hill.What stood out to me was how clean her voice was, how well she controlled her voice in terms of volume and pitch and beautiful melody lines that you want to sing along to.
Last but not least was Liimo who hail from Edinburgh and came fully prepped with a table with a full range of branded merchandise even giving away free post cards to those who attended the gig. The trio entertained the crowd with some jokes, electric drum beats and great lyrics. Lead singer Kieran even managed to bust some moves through out the set and introduced new song “What About Us” showcasing his pleasant high pitched voice.
The trio also sang their first single “Pineapple Radio” and I personally liked the song called “Miracle” which was responded to, by even more dancing from the audience.
Make sure to check all three acts on social media and perhaps you end up finding your favorite band!
