We’re getting excitingly close to the release of TFCF, Liars‘ eighth album and first as the solo project of singer and guitarist Angus Andrew. After sharing the first single ‘Cred Woes’ last month, Liars know how to turn heads. The outfit is offering not one but two new and very different cuts from the album, ‘The Grand Delusional’ and ‘Coins In My Caged Fist’. ‘The Grand Delusional’ is a quieter and darker affair opening with acoustic guitar, while ‘Coins In My Caged Fist’, featuring drum machines and samples, navigates a much wilder territory. “I wanted to do lots of sampling,” explained Angus. “I’d done a little in the past, but I’d started to realize the possibilities of the process, of sampling myself playing ‘proper’ instruments, and then using the sampler to put it all together in an ‘artificial’ way.”
Grab TFCF when it drops on August 25th through Mute and listen to ‘The Grand Delusional’ and ‘Coins In My Caged Fist’ below.
With a new touring band and a mammoth tour kicking off tomorrow at Visions Festival in London, Liars are hitting stages all over Europe and North America throughout the Summer and Autumn. The band is also set to perform at the mighty Le Guess Who? Festival which takes place in Utrecht November 9th-12th.
