Track Of The Day: LIERS – ‘Host’

A shimmering slice of garage rock glory: North Dublin’s LIERS have shared their latest single ‘Host’. The release coincides with the news that the band have been announced as one of the winners of Ireland’s RTE 2FM’s ‘Play The Picnic’ Competition, which will seem them take to the stage at Electric Picnic on the weekend of August 31st.

LIERS released their debut single ‘Universal Feamle’ just a few months ago, and with now with second track ‘Host’ under their belts; summer 2018 looks promising for the band. Vocalist and guitarist Liz explains further:

“We were delighted with the response and reaction to our first single ‘Universal Female’. It gave us a great chance to get out and chase the gigs and play to buzzed-up crowds. It’s an exciting time to be on the Irish scene with our sound, and we’re very grateful to the DJs who gave us the spins needed so far and of course to our growing base of fans, many of who voted for us to get to play the Picnic and we really want to thank everyone for their support.

We are very grateful to 2FM for the opportunity to play the Picnic as it’s been one of our biggest goals so far. The proceeds of the voting went to the Jack and Jill Foundation so it’s a very worthy cause to support also. We can’t wait to land in Stradbally. We just want to keep being loud, have fun and show people what we’re here to do”

Sounds good to us! Listen to ‘Host’ below and follow LIERS on Facebook for more updates.

‘Host’ is available to stream on Spotify & download from Bandcamp now.

Track Of The Day: LIERS – ‘Universal Female’

Are you “Hooked on dreams, tired of emotions”? – fear not, Dublin-based LIERS have written a tune for when you’re feeling “perfectly imperfect”. Their debut single ‘Universal Female’ is a torrent of alternative sound, designed to shake your ear drums and get your feet stomping.

Formed by lead singer Liz Seaver (an established singer/songwriter in her own right), LIERS have been performing together at festivals and gigs for a while now. Inspired by the sound of 90’s bands like Foo Fighters, Nirvana, Oasis, Smashing Pumpkins, PJ Harvey and Alanis Morrissette; Liz, Ed Scanlan (Lead guitarist), Stephen Farrell (Bassist) and Ronan O’Hanlon (Drummer) decided to create their own music, and ‘Universal Female’ is the first of what we hope will be several stellar singles.

The band will be celebrating the release of the single by joining Sub Motion to open for post-grunge rockers Fangclub at Whelan’s in Dublin on Thursday April 26th. With the support of Polite Society (Fangclub, Long Tail, Vulpynes), and an EP release lined up on Headwire Records later this year, 2018 is set to be a big year for LIERS.
