Three years on from the release of All Tense Now Lax, which was one of our Picks of 2015, Southend-on-Sea’s experimental outfit Liberez are back with a new album and an expanded line up. Entitled Way Through Vulnerability, the record sees them exploring new genres and influences, including Flamenco rhythms, Italian avant-garde and UK industrial music. Basque language, Hungarian dialect and ancient Russian are also used in the record, “to lend their compositions a cross-cultural underpinning and eschew any clear geographic origin”, describes the press release, “a decision which all but adds to the perplexities of their unique brand of electro-acoustic purgatory.”
Way Through Vulnerability is out on November 30th through Alter and ‘Cellophane Window’ serves as the first fascinating taste from it. The track comes with an accompanying video directed by Matthew Reay and you can watch it below.
