The latest single ‘Brats’ from Elctro dance band Liars is due for release on 15th October and is taken from their album WIXIW.Liars are Angus Andrew, Aaron Hemphill, and Julian Gross. WIXIW is the bands sixth studio album and was recorded in L.A. and was produced by the band along with Daniel Miller and mixed by Tom Biler.
This is an electro funk track with heavy layering to create a psychedelic sound reminiscent of Underworlds ‘Born Slippy’ which was made famous owing to its catchy rhythms and featured in Trainspotting, one of the most iconic British movies ever released.
The video is well worth a mention too and is what you would imagine if you took too many mind altering chemical substances ( not that we advocate this one little bit) then watched Bugs Bunny… so very wrong on so many levels it works its way back round to being sort of cool in a slightly disturbing way.
Liars will be appearing live this October in Leeds –Brundell Social Club (10th), Glasgow – SW3 (11th), Norwich Sound and Vision Festival (13th), Portsmouth – Wedgewood Rooms(14th), Cambridge – Junction (15th), London – Scala (16th),Birmingham – Rainbow Warehouse (18th), Oxford – Gathering Festival(20th), and Manchester – Sound Control (21st). 6.5/10
