LiquidLight is a true rock band. In an age where popular culture pushes to “out-extreme” the latest and greatest, LiquidLight pursues balance and clarity with respect to great rock tradition. With their first full length album, 2015’s Uninitiated, they were named Best Emerging Alt Rock Band by the prestigious Deli Magazine. Their debut showcased the band’s tremendous potential as a post-punk, alternative powerhouse. Referencing such formers as Husker Du and The Replacements, LiquidLight has

been described as “melodic, thoughtful and jingle-jangly as well as shred-crazy and powerful.”

 

LiquidLight’s sophomore LP Wicked Radio, released in September 2017 was mastered at Capitol Studios in Los Angeles and " ...is a commentary on the divide between pop songs and having strong instrumental personality. Those things used to be wrapped up in one package but they have been growing further apart for decades. Our goal was to bring them together in our own way.” 

 

LiquidLight has the psychedelic energy of a 70s band on the road for the first and last time. Living on the edge, living through the hurdles of existence and most of all living for the love of creating something that adds a sparkling narrative to the rock scene. With a high standard of execution, strong melodies and elements of psychedelic and alternative influences, the music conveys a new, yet referential optimism.

“LiquidLight has managed to produce an album that is not quite like anything else hitting your eardrums lately” - Eleven Magazine

Songwriters Anthony Medici and Cory West, both Berklee College of Music alums, honed their craft while performing with bands in Boston and along the East Coast. They are each highly accomplished multi-instrumentalists backed by an explosive and versatile rhythm section. Medici's lead vocals lend a cryptic yet powerful element to the sound and structure of the band, echoing the melodic sensibilities of the college/alternative era.
