The band, originated with songwriters Alex Moore and Spencer Livingston, who met in Los Angeles in 2014, they with the help of Mike Schadel on drums and now Rodrigo Moreno on bass are the make-up of Livingmore. Drawing inspiration across several genres from acts such as Garbage and The Kinks to Belle and Sebastian, Moore and Livingston write dreamy, alternative songs that sound like, in their own words - “a mixture of Blondie and The Everly Brothers.”
From the childlike essence of trying to decide what to do when you grow up in ‘Cocoon,’ to the upbeat and straightforward ‘Never Slow Down,’ to the slow and dreamy ‘Transition,’ Livingmore’s first full length record is a lush collection of indie rock tracks.
Their first single from their new record, “Cocoon,” is a whimsical, guitar heavy track, with flourishes of western-tinged riffs that layer over Moore’s crooning vocal melodies. On the inspiration behind the track, Moore notes: “You realize growing up isn’t just like, you’re a kid and then you’re an adult. There’s all these things in the middle, and it’s easy to get stuck in a phase in your life where you feel cocooned, in a way.”
The record’s anthemic title track, ‘Really Mean It’ is accompanied by an animated stop motion video created by Moore’s brother, Dillon. “We really just wanted to make a video that was totally organic and back to basics but at the same time unique and fresh. That’s kind of what this band is really about when you get down to it,” he explains
