‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’ never looked or sounded as stunning as this. Mix 3 amazing female singers, a haunting remix of a grunge classic and a Eurovision manager and what do you get? Simple – you get ‘Liir’ and a possible Irish Eurovision 2016 entrant.
Liir includes ‘You’re A Star’ winner Leanne Moore, ‘The Voice of Ireland’contestant Kim Hayden and Michele McGrath – who used to be in Irish pop group ‘Industry’.
They mounted a bid for the Irish Eurovision selection for 2015 and just missed out on making the Irish National Final – Big Mistake by the powers that be!
However you cannot keep 3 determined and talented women down and they are back! Managed by Eurovision Winner Linda Martin and with producer Eberhart, they have released this amazing cover version of the Nirvana classic ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’.
This version is far from the original both in genre and emotion. Think of it as a James Bond cocktail – A shot of Alanis Morissette’s ‘Uninvited’ with a dash of contemporary Celtic music and a twist of Sass and you have a tasty drink for that certainly quenches the thirst for a modern take on a classic. Their harmonies are on point and they just work together as a group!
Is 2016 the year that Liir get their chance at Eurovision and the Irish National Selection? One way to find out is by following the Band on their social media channels – Facebook Twitter and Instagram
Things are getting interesting!
