Liotia use a range of electric and electronic instruments to create a unique cinematic soundscape. Often likened to a halfway point between Little Dragon and Portsihead, Abi’s unique writing and vocal style add both intimately delivered poetic verse combined with emotional screams processed with a range of electronics devices.

Matt, often using found sounds as the basis of sound design combines synth programming and live drum machine performance, embellished with production processes that have their roots in the Dub mixing style pioneered by Lee Scratch Perry and King Tubby. (Matt having worked closely as an engineer with producer Adrian Sherwood at On U Sound’s Studio).

The duo released their debut EP So Close / Yours Tonight in July 2019
