New York-based quartet The Liza Colby Sound have announced a tour in support of their debut full-length album, Object To Impossible Destination, which can be streamed here.
Object To Impossible Destination finds The Liza Colby Sound on a fresh odyssey. Their first full-length album after 3 well-received EPs, this 8-song collection distills down the essence of LCS. In the words of frontwoman Liza Colby, “Object to Impossible Destination: 8 songs, 8 stops on a heavy trip through a rock and roll fever dream, extra headroom. Get off and stay onboard.” Here, the hooks are sharp, and the ensemble playing is spacious and vibey – attributes which are finely displayed on “Shake You” and “Eye On You.” “Shake You” is the razors edge between love and obsession; the space that relentlessly reminds us that all is fair in love and war. “Eye On You,” whose video premiered on Billboard, traverses a thick viscous stoner haze, and proto-metal riffage.
Naugahyde boogie thrills abide on “Cool Hand” which recalls the “light and shade” dynamics of Led Zeppelin and the sophisticated melodicism of Cream’s Jack Bruce. Musos will delight in the challenging time signature of “Young Girl,” though you don’t need a Berklee degree to shake your ass to this jam. Imagine the Delta blues transported to a 1970s Fillmore West night, and then beamed to 2019. The Liza Colby Sound quartet features seasoned musicians welding decades of experience, including Jay Shepard on guitar, Alec Morton on bass, and Charly Roth on drums. Powerhouse Liza Colby brings smooth vocals with a seductive, shamanistic twist on the classic rock n’ roll sound.
When she’s not prowling the stage clad only in a paper-thin leopard-print leotard with LCS, Liza Colby can be found featured on many other creative projects. From singing with Brass Against The Machine to building an acting career on Netflix’s Russian Doll (amongst others), Liza simply loves “doing creative stuff.” With artistry seeping at the seams, Liza uses her fiery and sensual presence to channel female independence, strength, and empowerment in a time where these themes seem more relevant and prevalent than ever.
There are many destinations up next for The Liza Colby Sound in 2019, including another round of European touring and a NYC residency at Coney Island Baby. All tour dates can be found below.
