I Like Trains (previously styled as iLiKETRAiNS) are an alternative/post-rock band from Leeds, England. The group play brooding songs featuring sparse piano and guitar, baritone vocals, uplifting choral passages and reverberant orchestral crescendos. They draw their inspiration from historical failings and a pessimistic world view. Their debut album, Elegies to Lessons Learnt was released on Beggars Banquet Records, and their debut EP, "Progress Reform", was released on Fierce Panda Records in June 2006. The band ran a night at The Brudenell Social Club in Leeds called Signal Failure, putting on bands including Youthmovies, Blood Red Shoes, The Strange Death of Liberal England, Josh T. Pearson and The Early Years. On 7 April 2007, I Like Trains featured on the early-hours music television programme The JD Set, which featured live performance clips and interviews. David Martin talked about how he wanted their music to have a "sense of location" and that this was lacking in music like "Godspeed and Sigur RÃ³s".
