Livonia Expresses Lots About Themselves and their Music!

U.K. based pop punks LIVONIA have their debut single "Talking", out now with more material coming soon enough. Discover what more the band had to express about themselves and the music that they create.

1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

The band all started in a dimly lit basement in Soho. Whilst working down there, we discovered we had a similar taste in music and started writing some songs together. Having practiced for a few months and written a few songs, we then recorded our first single over at Outhouse Studios in Reading and started playing some local gigs. This is only the beginning for us and we’re hoping 2020 will have a lot more in store!

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

Livonia is the ancient Greek word for ‘Destroyer of worlds’!! No, it’s not really - it’s just a tiny street in London we used to work on. It was sort of a joke name at first (we weren’t too keen on a work-related band name) but then it just stuck!

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

Well London is London, it’s massive. There’s so much going on here, we’re constantly watching sick bands of all levels play at incredible venues both intimate and huge. There are so many places we have on our bucket list to play. Notable bands are Basement League and Youth Illusion.

4. How would you describe your style?

We’d say we’re heavy pop punk - think Don Broco crossed with The Story So Far. The bouncy choruses but with the shouty/growly voice. We love music that makes you want to jump around and bang your head like crazy, so we try and get that across in our songs.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

So far, we’ve only released our single “Talking”, which is about not keeping bad energy locked up inside. We’ve had a really positive response so far so we can’t wait to get more stuff out there! Expect catchy melodies and lively riffs.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

We’ve got something cooking... keep an eye out for an announcement in the coming days!

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

We’ve got some local shows coming up but no tours as of yet, we’re hoping to do this later in the year off the back of releasing more music.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

Play as many shows as we can get our hands on really. We want to get our music heard by as many people as possible, our shows just keep getting bigger, better and sweatier! So one day taking our music on tour and sharing it with other people in the middle of nowhere would definitely be an amazing feeling for us. Then I suppose get an album recorded, that would be sweet too!

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

“Talking” is available to stream on all major platforms. Find everything you need to know about us on our website:

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

The inability to stand still while listening.
