Whether expressing the vicissitudes of a romance run off course or finding one's soul deep inside his or her thoughts, Lydia crafts its sound with cadence approach that creates the equal allegiance to thunder and quiet found in Antleman's words, and further solidifies its place as the voice of today's indie rock generation. Lydia started out in 2003 as a five piece band: Leighton Antelman (Lead Vocals and Guitar), Steve McGraw (Guitar), Maria Sais De Sicilia (Backup vocals and Keyboard), Dustin Forsgren (Bass), and Loren Brinton (Drums). But now, Even Aranbul has replaced Forsgren, Mindy White with Dais De Sicilia, and Craig Taylor with Brinton and added second guitarist, Ethan Koozer. Debut album, "This December; It's One More and I'm Free" was recorded by the former members of the band and was released on September 27th, 2005 with the HourZero Records. The band's second album titled "Illuminate," which is set to be released March 2008 with the Linc Star Records. Lydia has risen to fame quickly as the band won a nationwide competition to be part of Atticus Draggin' the Lake Volume 3 compilation hosted by the Atticus Clothing with the song "Smile, You've Won," in 2005. It continued its success with its demo, "Your Taste is My Attention," making it to the Volume 4 in 2006. In "This December" Lydia displays layers of simple melodies combined, and yet so complete that each member of the band blends together to form one unique sound. With a close listen, Lydia opens a world of heart-wrenching ambience with delicate notes from both guitars to two singer's espousal harmony. Antelman embarks on an exploration of literary terrain as a poet to match to his melancholy voice. The rhythmic, angular wordplay form a rich journey through the intensely personal as Antelman throws into sharp issues of love, death, identity and drugs. Songs such as "It's In Your Blood," "Always Move Fast" and "Her and Haley" showcase Sais De Sicilia's voice so well with intensely thoughtful lyrics to mellow and yet explosive sounds. More so, "Fools and Luxury" and "December" highlight its fast moving side with heavy-on drums to add on to its delicate sound. More so, songs like "A Story For Supper," which runs little less than 8 minutes, proves Lydia's great handle on complexity to match every detail of car crash seem so real. Lydia's concentration in details is so well thought out in this album, from people talking in the background to George Jung's interview. "This Decembers" close-knit details keeps the listener on the edge, making it possible to be looped constantly without feeling repetitive. Now, Lydia fans all over the nation are anticipating on its second album, "Illuminate." Its first song, "Hospital," was up on MySpace, Christmas day and already met a huge success. 2. In 2005, Lydia released their debut album Gloria Can’t Dance (including the hit single with the same name) on NZW Records. 3.
