The Like Biography

The Like are the band of your dreams. I know this because I've met them. Over there you have front-woman, cured delinquent Z Berg, with a brain even sharper than her haircut (blonde bob) whose songs fizz and pop until everyone's jumping on the bed! Drum duty is deftly taken-care of by the comely Tennessee Thomas (she hits them hard). And introducing new bandmates, swaying bassist Laena Geronimo (she plays said instrument like a hula hoop) and nimble-fingered organist Annie Monroe - who believes the higher the hair, the closer to God. Collectively their mission was to create the lost 60's girl group record of their dreams, and yours.

With a little help from Mark Ronson, Alex Greenwald, and the soul and studio sophistication of Dap-Kings Tommy Brenneck and Homer Steinweiss, The Like have happened upon a sure classic. Their mission: to find out how it would sound if The Supremes fronted The Animals. When they stepped into Dunham Studios in Brooklyn they stepped into another world, another time! Soul recorded soley on analog equipment, with strictly gear from the sixties, the girls made this record like the records they love, LIVE! Get it right or go home! And oh boy, did they get it right! The Like are a live band, no, a FORCE to be reckoned with. Wrong them and you'll be left "Wishing You Were Dead."

They're on the brink of something utterly fantastic. You can see it in their eyes! After years on the road with the likes of Arctic Monkeys, Kings of Leon and Muse, they're finally back, with a new record, their second, Release Me due in June (Gloom-y no more) on Downtown Records. At last released, and so are they, from the shackles of adolescence, and love turned to hate. It's a record about being heartbroken and breaking hearts, years of feverish living, harebrained schemes, and raving-mad relationships, testing boundaries and breaking them all down. In short, it's about growing up! It's everything they had to give, and so here it is: Release Me, by The Like. Set them free!
