LIO // Live @ Tramlines Fringe Review
- Live Reviews
- 22nd July 2018
LIO is a Sheffield based artist who creates ambient indie-ish atmospheric music that is slightly reminiscent of Daughter. She’s already gained the love of BBC Introducing, and played Y Not Festival, Tramlines and more, so we listened to her music and now she’s gained ours too. She played a set at The Great Gatsby for Tramlines Fringe, and we thought a review was in order. So here it is.
The Great Gastby was jam packed throughout the entire set, and with good reason. Sometimes its nice to get away from the standard festival indie and rock for a while and indulge in something a little more relaxing, and that’s exactly what LIO was. Ranging from ambient soundscapes to mellow indie and everything in between, their set was a very welcome breather. One thing that cannot go understated her is LIO’s voice. She manages to belt her heart out while having it blend perfectly with the moody ambience of the music. It’s pretty impressive. The Great Gastby was the perfect location for an intimate show like this one. The emotions and atmosphere found in that room were very soothing to someone who had been running round Sheffield all day trying to see as many bands as possible.
Unfortunately the room was far too packed out to record the set (or even take a decent picture, as you can see), but for a taster of what I’m talking about, check out the video below!
