After a mere three months as a fully formed band, The Liminals won The Assembly’s Band of Choice Competition, granting them the opportunity to open Rocking the Daises’ main stage in 2013. Two years down the line and they are taking the Cape Town live music scene by storm. In addition to having just played a sold out gig along with Al Bairre, The Nomadic Orchestra and The Plastics last Friday, the four-piece are once again on the main stage line up of Rocking the Daisies 2015, as well as having nabbed a main stage slot at Oppikoppi in 2014.

Comprising of the wildly energized front man, Aviwe Sikile, Dylan Fine on lead guitar, Angus Hardcastle on bass and Mitchell Davies on drums, the band are wildly known for their excellently orchestrated live performances, combining their dynamic stage presence and funky tunes to create an effortlessly memorable gig.

True to their eclectic roots and unusual name, The Liminals combine a medley of different genres in their music. Funk, indie-rock, jazz, blues and even the occasional African-influence coalesce to create the band’s signature sound. Unpredictable, strangely pleasing discordant moments intersperse smoothly grooving, ska-influenced tunes. Their overall sound is clean-cut and clarified, and jangling guitar and full, smoothly rolling vocals contribute a decidedly eloquent feel to their music as a whole.

Currently working on their first EP, said to be released later this year, The Liminals are on the top of their game to get their music out there. Keep an eye out for this local gem in Cape Town and surrounds, and if you’re headed to Rocking the Daisies’ tenth birthday in a couple of weeks, make sure to find time to catch them and their foot-tapping tunes.
