Here’s a treat from Liars, in anticipation of their European tour. They are offering two brand new tracks, ‘I Saw You From The Lifeboat’ and ‘Perfume Tear’, as a free download in exchange for an email.
Singer and guitarist Angus Andrew explains how these new cuts came about:
“After releasing WIXIW and returning home from touring there was a palpable sense of creative relief and release. We relished in the opportunity to make stuff under no real directive and began almost immediately to produce all kinds of unrelated works. It’s a great position to be in creatively so we decided to share a small portion of the results with you today. Both of these songs happened almost instantly, and, in sharp contrast to the music we produced for WIXIW, were not labored over or scrutinized. It’s been great for us to recall the immediacy and excitement of creating music on the fly – unrestricted by subject matter and void of preoccupations about how it should ‘work’ in the greater context of things.”
Liars have also made a video for ‘I Saw You From The Lifeboat’, featuring an amalgamation of footage documenting their past few years. Watch it now.
