Nashville-based Leagues is comprised of lead vocalist and songwriter Thad Cockrell and producer/programmer/drummer Jeremy Lutito. The duo first turned heads with their self titled EP in 2012 and subsequent breakout debut album You Belong Here the following year. At the time Esquire included the band in their artists to watch saying "because somehow what starts like The Strokes and finishes like The Rapture doesn't sound even a millisecond past its sell-by date," and Paste noted the album's "...infectious melodies..."
Press weren't the only ones noticing - the album garnered a rapid fan base behind the breakout alternative and AAA singles "Spotlight" and "Walking Backwards," as well as a number of high profile uses of Leagues' songs in film, television and advertising campaigns. Leagues' new album Alone Together once again highlights Cockrell and Lutito's passion for creating their own particular brand of dance pop and captures a creative duo egging each other on to ever-greater heights.
"The record, Alone Together, touches on themes that we hold dear. Connection with those around us, both known and unknown, the idea of belonging and being wanted. We want to take those feelings and turn them into beauty. We all know loneliness, but maybe if we all know it together, we can fill the space between and turn it into a party." - Leagues
