Charming liars--thought, flesh and bone
By Stephanie Stevens
When music catches your ears to many its certain things that make you intrigued. For me, an alluring and satisfying vocalist that has a interesting flair sets my heart ablaze and then add passionate lyrics and you have me sold.
Charming Liars were first introduced to me by a Spotify playlist. The bands single SOUL played and within the first 30 seconds that voice did me in. The words it was displaying and that soothing beautiful vocal pattern made me wanna know more. Then that chorus just explodes and wants you to showcase that positive and inviting happiness we all might be losing in this day and age. Once that song was introduced to me I followed the London and now Los Angeles based band charming liars.
The band set out to release single songs for the past year but with thought, flesh and bone; they have integrated all singles and some new tracks into a powerful alternative pop electronic piece of artistry.
LIKE A DRUG is prob a 2nd favorite because yet again this voice just engulfs into your soul. This one is more daring, seductive and alluring but the song overall track is just catchy as hell, moody and intriguing.
OCEAN delves into the more dance electric type ambiance. Higher energy real poppy and a fun song. SPIRAL OUT keeps with the more techy electronic engagement but has that rock sounding illusion keeping the song protected and multi leveled.
DEEPER is just captivating and showcases more of the vocal side of things. NOVACAINE has a flair of 90s soundscapes but then slowly follows into a more melodic sweet lullaby like feeling.
INSOMNIA is purely fascinating from the combo of rock, synth like pop flair and yet again that voice is just smooth and captivating. SOMETHING DARK is a force of nature not sure how to explain the alluring qualities of the mood shifts of this track. It might just be the case of just clicking the button to listen because it has me hooked.
All and all if you love the sounds of eclectic feelings, pop uplifting elements and a little alternative rock roots to make it all come together like perfection then Charming Liars is the band for you.
