Originally the electronic alter-ego of the band Frequency Below, Lovers In Arms (LIA) was formed by Caroline Yohanan(lead vocal) and Armando Perez(vocal/production)in early 2006 to create an inspired emotional album of down-tempo and dance tracks. Receiving acclaim and positive reviews from the local underground scene and the Chicago Sun-Times, the couple independently released their debut disc "Belmont Electric" in local music shops and over the internet on CD Baby providing digital distribution for national and international support.
Writing and recording as a duo led to the experimental and progressive formation of a five-piece live band including Ryan Schoen(bass), Dan Lieber(drums), and Juan Lugo(percussion). The music can be identified by its funky soulful rock, jazzy beats, intelligent laid-back lyrics, soaring vocal melodies, and angelic harmonies.
Tracks such as "You Give Me Truth", "Steamed" and "The Woodpecker Song" demonstrate the strengths of this Chicago based trip-hop band. Showcasing the ability to write poignant love songs, as well as upbeat party tracks, Lovers In Arms is sure to move the spirit as well as the body.
