Today Danish teenagers Liss share their brand new single and video Sorry. Premiered last night as Annie Mac’s ‘Hottest Record’ on BBC Radio 1, ‘Sorry’ is an enchanting slice of R&B built around singer Søren Holm’s distinct, soulful vocal. It’s a further glimpse of just how much potential this young quartet has.

The video for ‘Sorry’ is filmed and directed by the band themselves. Check it out right now here:

‘Sorry’ is the follow up to Liss’ debut single Try / Always’ released in November last year via the highly-respected Danish label Escho. Described by The Guardian as “a liquid piece of fast-paced funk pop that imagines what might have happened had Michael Jackson recorded with Arthur Russell” and Crack Magazine simply as “nonchalantly effortless pop”, it was an irresistible first statement from the Aarhus, Denmark-based quartet, and a compelling introduction to Liss’ unique brand of Nordic Soul.

Sorry’ is taken from Liss’ forthcoming ‘First’ EP. The four track EP will be the band’s first release on XL Recordings.

‘First’ EP track list:

  1. Sorry
  2. Good Enough
  3. Miles Apart
  4. Without Me
