Lit - The View From The Bottom

Lit - The View From The Bottom Cover

Lit are back after a long break. But is the view from the bottom as good as the view from the top?

After peppering the turn of the millennium with some of the biggest hooks in pop-punk, Lit once provided a pre-adolescent soundtrack for virtually an entire generation. After a whopping eight years marred with tragedy and loss, the California stalwarts are back with an album drawing on a decade of highs and lows. Expect polished fare awash with slick harmonies, clean guitars, heavy drumbeats, giant hooks and an unadulterated wall of gleaming pop – much of which is laced with a sense of melancholy. You won’t find anthemic pop songs in the vein of Lit’s former glories, but expect a new generation to start edging towards the dancefloor regardless.
