UK Artist of the Week: Living Dead Girl

Duo Jonno Lloyd and Jessica English started playing music together in a function band. While we love it, we’re guessing the name Living Dead Girl came after their function days.

Despite having massively divergent musical backgrounds (Jonno cut his teeth in industrial-rock, Jessica in experimental-pop) the pair found common ground in Electronica music, a genre that now heavily influences their own music along with elements of trip-hop and rock.

Their new single “Skylines” combines steady pulsing drums with English’s floating, ghost-like vocals and immediately conjures up comparisons with bands like ’90s giants Portishead, but the music also shares similarities with contemporary artists like SBTRKT with a darker, atmospheric twist.

It’s this straddling of past and present influences, from a range of different genres, that makes Living Dead Girl such an intriguing up and coming band worth keeping an eye on.

“Skylines” was released via LDG Records on 16th October 2015.
