You’ve never heard Liars like this before…
Pronounced “wish you”, this latest release from Liars is almost without a doubt unlike very much you have heard before. They are still distinctly Liars songs, but take a whole new tone. Vocals can be clear or processed, synths propel strong undercurrents, samples provide unique moods, and percussion varies between skittering clicks and driving grooves of drums. Not necessarily the most joyous of sounds, this album nonetheless brings a darker, yet still energetic shade to your show’s palette.
Quick Take: Deliberately disquieting and slower synth and sampler-based dark pop/rock
Think: Old Liars or new Radiohead
REC: 3, 6, 8, 9, 10 (energetic)
