Livingroom Releases "Don't Shoot The Messenger!


originally published: 10/31/2021

Livingroom Releases "Don

Chicago-based Indie Pop Rock band Livingroom took home the ILMEA All-State Composition Award for the title track off their debut Honeybee EP in 2020. Now they've returned with a bolder, more realized signature sound on debut album Don't Shoot the Messenger!, out now on major platforms. Hyper-catchy, up-tempo, brimming with melody and casual wit, this release should appeal to adventurous indie pop, rock and alternative fans.

Written almost entirely in the COVID-19 era, Don’t Shoot the Messenger! is a statement on the way relationships (platonic and romantic alike) can throw themselves together and disintegrate just as fast. Most importantly, the album offers an answer. Change starts with the individual. At its core, the album itself is something like a cry for help, a distress signal, a message; Livingroom is the proverbial messenger.

You can stream the album at Soundcloud, Bandcamp, and Spotify.

Livingroom’s mission statement has been the same ever since its four members met as freshmen in high school: to create original music with an emphasis on quality songwriting. Founded in 2018 in the suburbs of Chicago, the band quickly transitioned from a backing group for their school’s variety show to a serious band with a distinct musical voice. Their synthesis of musical genres lends itself to a uniquely catchy sound the band coined “grape pop.”
