Liimo - If You Were Here Tonight

Following the release of their debut album 'Volume 1' in August, Edinburgh-based alt-pop trio Liimo (meaning a little more) now return to share a cover of the classic Alexander O’'Neal single 'If You Were Here Tonight'. Through smokey atmospherics and emotive synth pad textures comes a stunning rendition that showcases the band's appreciation for 80's pop. Speaking about the new rendition, the band said, "After reading Richard Russell's book 'Liberation Of Hearing' and with a mention to Alexander the idea grew from there. We’re big fans of Alexander O’'Neal, 'Hearsay' being one of our favourite albums. We were listening to 'If You Were Here Tonight' recently and it resonated so much with how we’re feeling at the moment. Missing loved ones and wishing you could be with them, so we thought we’d put the Liimo spin on it." Take a listen for yourselves below.
