THE SECOND FLOOR
Liam Frost made his live debut at 15 years of age. After a few years singing in punk rock bands, and went solo in 2003, aged 20. Frost is described by Guy Garvey (Elbow) as “the UK’s answer to Bright Eyes” His songs are heavily focused on the death, ten years apart, of his father and brother and the impact these events had on his life and the lives of those around him. Frost signed a record deal with Lavolta Records, a subsidiary of Sony BMG, in 2005. For some artists, three years dominated by broken hearts, the spectre of bereavement and wrangles with their record company would be the perfect excuse to churn out a set of self-pitying songs. But Liam Frost has synthesised his experiences into We Ain’t Got No Money, Honey, But We Got Rain, a brilliantly soulful pop record that mixes sweet melodies with tantalisingly dark undertones.
