"should appeal strongly to fans of Frightened Rabbit" - The List
Life Model are a 4-piece dream pop band from Glasgow, made up of Sophie Evans (vocals), Chris Smith (guitar), Joanne McCafferty (bass) and Michael McDonald (drums).
The band mixes classic indie and pop influences like The Sundays and Belle and Sebastian with the noisier side of alternative bands such as Sonic Youth, Smashing Pumpkins and Ride.
Their sound has been described as pop-drenched melody, supplemented with layers of reverberating noise like they've taken Harriet Wheeler from The Sundays and asked her to sing on the kind of song Ride used to write. For The Rabbits.
