Leagues - FUV Live - 2013

by Alisa Ali

You Belong Here is the impressively well-crafted debut album from the Nashville-based band, Leagues. It’s no surprise that the band sounds so polished, since the all of band members are seasoned musicians who have been making music for many years.

The band released a self-titled EP in 2011 which earned them critical acclaim. American Songwriter magazine praised them by saying, “Leagues seem to have struck a nice balance between indie and classic rock,” and The Independent Weekly calls their music “indie-imbued pop-rock.” Of the record the band comments, “The whole spirit of You Belong Here really resonates with us. It’s a phrase that gets tossed around without much thought, but if you take a moment and think about it, it can hold a lot of comfort and depth. Like walking into a party and everyone is genuinely glad you are there. It’s the celebration of togetherness, really.” And we were genuinely glad that the band stopped by Studio A.
