The Meadows 'Love Limbo'

The Meadows – Love Limbo | | RGM

The Meadows, a self-described ‘sophisti-pop’ band from Sheffield, have released their newest single ‘Love Limbo’. I think these boys deserve some more listeners, there’s something really nostalgic about their sound. 

‘Love Limbo’ is a shorter song at two and a half minutes but it doesn’t feel abrupt: leading in with some bird sounds (kudos for that guys, nice touch), a piano riff sets up the base of the song reminding me of a 60s Burt Bacharach, especially on the synth solo half way through. Vocals remind me of The Verve’s Richard Ashcroft, and the overall vibe of the song meets somewhere in the middle of The Verve, Burt Bacharach and Jamiroqui.  It’s just a really cool blend of influences and sounds. I had fun listening to this.

It doesn’t sound like they’re taking themselves too seriously, it sounds like they love making music and they have fun doing what they do; a movement incidentally I think is becoming more pronounced in music right now that we should all get on board with. Music is after all something people should love making, so let’s endorse that shall we? And foster the people who obviously love it.

To round it off, go listen to The Meadows’ new single, let’s show them some love.
