Along with the new track, Charming Liars recently shared two new videos from their “Live Sounds of 2020” series: “Falling” and “Disco Elvis.” The performances were filmed in late 2020 at a warehouse in Los Angeles – the first time the band performed together after the pandemic put an indefinite end to live music. Charming Liars can’t wait to return to the stage this year, with new shows to be announced soon.
The evolution of Charming Liars began in London’s West End when guitarist Karnig Manoukian and bassist Mike Kruger were still teenagers. Both came from homes with varied and eclectic musical tastes, and this early exposure influenced their approach to music.
They began writing and playing together in a series of bands and honed their musical acumen with several tours across the UK. In 2013, they decided to move to Los Angeles, partly spurred on by an encouraging social media post from songwriter and producer John. Feldmann (Panic! at the Disco, Plain White T’s, 5 Seconds of Summer, Blink-182) – who told them to pick him up for a songwriting session if they were ever in town.
The two bonded with singer Kiliyan Maguire through a mutual friend while he was attending the Musicians Institute in Hollywood. Through initial conversations that led to songwriting and then recording sessions – the 3 realized they had organic musical chemistry that would lead to some interesting possibilities.
2019 proved to be a pivotal year for the band, which released their debut album, Thought, Flesh and Bone, a follow-up acoustic EP, Bare Bones, and closed the year with a live collection titled Live 2019. also headlined West Coast shows, toured Europe with The Hunger, and toured the United States as direct support for Angels & Airwaves. More recently, Charming Liars returned to Europe with Palaye Royale.
Over the past two years, Charming Liars have continued their “Live Sounds of 2020” series of live videos, in addition to releasing their new EPs Sequence 1: Noise Maker and Sequence 2: The After.
