The Like formed in 2001 in Los Angeles, when best friends Charlotte Froom (a bassist of two weeks at the time) and Tennessee Jane Bunny Thomas (a drummer in her all-girls-school band) met Z Berg and found the voice and songs they had been looking for. Almost immediately, the ladies began to garner local praise and attention, surprising their audiences with a complexity belying their very young years (two 15 year olds and a 16 year old at the time).
Over the next three years, the ladies independently released three EPs (i like the like, and the like and like it or not) that they sold at shows and on their website. Soon a diverse fan base developed and magazines from around the world began to take notice. Following their high school graduations in 2004, The Like signed to Geffen Records and toured with Phantom Planet and Maroon 5.
The Like recorded their debut album "Are You Thinking What I'm Thinking?" during the rainy Los Angeles winter of 2005 with Producer Wendy Melvoin (an original member of Prince and the Revolution), and co-producer John Goodmanson (Blonde Redhead, Bikini Kill, Deathcab for Cutie). The mixing was handled in London by Alan Moulder, famous for his work at the boards for such Like favorites as the Jesus and Mary Chain, Elastica and My Bloody Valentine.
The Like transcend all the easy labels that one may be inclined to attach to them: all girl band, teenage band, LA band, etc. They simply write beautiful music, and possess an irresistible collective personality. Since their record came out they've toured with Kings of Leon, Phoenix, and Giant Drag and will be in a town near you very soon!
