The lead singer of the Danish indie-pop band LISS, Søren Holm has died at the age of 25. The band confirmed in a statement today (May 27).
The band shared the news via Instagram and wrote that “It’s with broken hearts that we have to let you know that our dearest Søren passed away on tuesday. Søren was the sweetest, funniest, most beautiful human being who always looked out for everyone around him.
“We are devastated. Along with Søren’s family, we ask at this moment for peace and quiet to mourn. Look after one another, Villads, Vilhelm and Tobias,” They added. “Kære Allesammen, Vores elskede Søren er tirsdag d. 25. maj pludseligt blevet taget fra os. Søren var det smukkeste, sjoveste, sødeste menneske, der altid passede på alle omkring ham. Vi er knuste og i chok. Sammen med Sørens familie beder vi om fred og ro til at sørge. Villads, Vilhelm og Tobias.”
LISS met in high school and formed in 2014, releasing their debut record ‘Try/Always’ a year later.
The success of the release, a collaboration with Danish producer Vera and frequent The xx producer Rodaidh McDonald, saw the four-piece subsequently sign with XL. Their debut EP for XL, ‘First’, followed in 2016, led by the track ‘Sorry’.
