With eight albums under their belt, and constant exciting and unexpected shifts from album to album, Liars re-emerged last year as the solo project of singer and guitarist Angus Andrew, following the amicable departure of Aaron Hemphill. 2014’s Mess marked their last album together, but soon after they were invited to create the soundtrack to 1/1, Jeremy Phillips’ directorial debut. After reading the script, Angus and Aaron didn’t hesitate to accept it. “It was very heavy, it was very intense and by the time we got to New York, we’d read it. At that point, we hadn’t seen anything but we were on board just from reading the script.” explained Angus.
Described as a joint production between all of the artists involved, some of the film was even edited to work with the music. “I view this movie as ours, and that goes for everyone involved in the production,” explained the director. “I wanted there to be give and take between everyone working on it.”
1/1 will be out in cinemas next month and Liars’ soundtrack arrives on July 20th through Mute. Liars had already dropped ‘Liquorice’ as the first taste and now they have shared a video for new single ‘No Now Not Your Face’, featuring footage form the film and also directed by Jeremy Phillips and Matt Detisch.
