Liars – “Big Appetite”
One of my heroes, Angus Andrew, has gathered a group of collaborators, avant-garde jazz drummer Laurence Pike, multi-instrumentalist Cameron Deyell, and lyricist Mary Pearson Andrew, to create the new Liars album. As Andrew states: “For the first time I embraced collaboration from an early stage, allowing the work of others to influence the work of my own.” “Big Appetite”, the new single, is another great piece of music by one of the greatest, most eccentric musician of all time. According to their bio:
The Apple Drop comes from a personal place of realignment and reconfiguration. “Throughout Liars’ history I have consistently tried to develop new methods of creating music,” Angus says. “On each project I’ve essentially abandoned previous methods and attempted to instead learn different ways of writing and producing songs. Where once I perceived this journey as a straight line, I’m increasingly realising my trajectory is more akin to a spiral. As new ideas are generated, older ones take on new meaning and evolve further.”
There are not many bands that could make looking to the past feel futuristic, but here Liars have managed to create an entirely new world––sonically, thematically and lyrically––by doing just that.
I could not put this more succinctly. All I know, if you are not familiar with the Liars’ work, you really need to listen. Future through the past; my new motto.
