Following the prolific release of seven critically acclaimed albums in as many years, a period of reflection & reinvention was called for.
tenebrous LIAR headed deep underground & considered what it had been & what it wanted to be.
Four years on from the release of their last album ‘End of the Road’ & five months on from reconvening in a Coventry rehearsal room - refreshed , restructured and hungry, the band return with the long awaited new ep ‘Turn it oN’.
Turn it oN’s three tracks introduce the new dawn of tenebrous LIAR & serve as a taste of what to expect from their next album due to emerge early in 2017.
Track 1 - This Ground - a post sense pop lament for the new clown age... "so so very out of touch, are we really paid to hurt this much?"
Track 2 - Sonny's Theme - a minimal instrumental piano soundscape for the imagined noir movie ‘You - Sonny’.
Track 3 - Turn it oN - a seven and a half minute jazz exploration.
tenebrous LIAR is Steve Gullick (vocals, guitar, piano), Brendan Casey (bass), Ben Edgar (drums).
the Sex Pistols trapped in a swamp
Ballsy and brooding, primordial industrial rhythms and swelling psychedelic feedback
Shellac, Liars and Nirvana at their most bloody-minded and musical
from Birthday Party blues into a thing of thunderous ferocity
Imagine Lift To Experience stuck in the eternal damnation their songs tried to escape from, but with a result more ashcan reality than spiritually vivid.
tenebrous Liar purvey a dark, doomed and deliciously damaged style of cosmic/ambient rock melancholy, which is nevertheless hugely uplifting
