Weekly Recommendation - Lydia
Indie music attracts a certain brand of music consumers who love a raw and unique sound and loathe the instant gratification singles that are commonplace on the radio today.
Well, indie fans everywhere rejoice, for we have Lydia.
The Arizona natives have been stirring up quite a bit of commotion in the underground music scene for some while and are looking to leave their mark on the music industry.
A band that fuses reverberated guitars with a hypnotizing sound, Lydia takes pride in their chilling unpolished music.
Songs like, "This Is Twice Now" produce lyrics that ring spiteful when lead singer Leighton Antelman confesses, "It's never much when I sing about you."
Antelman's high-pitched voice is complemented by keyboardist Mindy White, who provides a harmonious tone that defines Lydia's distinctive sound.
Lydia, who released their sophomore album "Illuminate" early last year, looks to build off their loyal fan base on their first-ever headlining tour, "Illuminate Yourself."
