Litany is the alias of 24 year-old songstress Beth Cornell from Harrogate, England.
Described by The FADER as making "Icy pop that will make you dance and cry" Litany has created a unique brand of effortlessly cool alternative pop.
Formerly working with producer Jake Nicolaides, the duo created a sonic catalogue with a real ode to adolescence and had a stream of successful cult hits including Bedroom, taken from their debut EP, 4 Track. This saw Litany rocket to popularity with its whimsical synth melodies and candid lyrics being heralded by the likes of BBC Radio 1, Sirius XM and Beats1.
July 2018 saw the release of ‘Call On Me’ oozing 90s influences and Cornell’s most confident vocal cut to date. Her smoky topline delivers nostalgia-ridden lyrics referencing everything from VHS rentals to specialist video game moves (hadouken).
Fresh from wowing crowds on the BBC Introducing Stage at Reading and Leeds Festival, Cornell and her band have played two sold out London headline shows in October, 2018.
