Søren Holm — the lead singer of Danish indie-pop group Liss — has died. Today the band broke the sad news, confirming Holm has passed away at the age of 25.

While no cause of death has been revealed, Liss wrote in a statement: "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."

The band added, "Along with Søren's family, we ask at this moment for peace and quiet to mourn. Look after one another, Villads, Vilhelm and Tobias."

After the band members met in high school, Liss officially formed in 2014, releasing their debut two-track single Try / Always in 2015. This soon led the band to deliver a string of mini-releases, with Liss eventually signing to XL Recordings to release First in 2016.

In addition to working with Danish producer Vera, Liss recorded with The xx producer Rodaidh McDonald.

In 2019, Liss put their follow-up EP Second, leading them to multiple support dates with Vampire Weekend. Liss also previously made their way to Canada on tour, playing Toronto's Drake Hotel back in 2016.

Their most recent effort was Third, which arrived back in July and featured a collaboration with Bullion.
