Liars Share Creepy Video for “Murdrum”

Liars (the project of Angus Andrew) released an album, TFCF, in August 2017 via Mute and last week they released a sequel album, Titles With The Word Fountain. Previously they shared its first single, "Murdrum," and now the song has a video. Australian filmmaker and photographer Riley Blakeway directed the creepy video, which you can watch below, followed by Liars' upcoming tour dates.

Andrew had this to say about the video in a press release: "Riley has made something beautifully cinematic and horrifyingly evocative here. Shot in the Australian bush, it brings to light the frightening qualities of the natural environment within which the song was written. The use of thermal footage to emphasize 'Murdrum's' haunting qualities really freaks me out."

Titles With The Word Fountain is out now digitally and on cassette, and is due out on vinyl on November 2. While Titles With The Word Fountain was recorded at the same time as TFCF, Andrew doesn't regard it as a collection of left over material or outtakes. "To me it's more like a sequel," he said in a previous press release. "I chose the songs that appear on TFCF based on how well they addressed the trauma of a failed creative relationship, whereas the material on Titles With The Word Fountain is more playful despite revolving around the same sentiments."
 
TFCF was the first Liars release recorded just by Andrew and without founding member Aaron Hemphill. "There was a lot of pressure in producing TFCF as it was guaranteed to be framed by the lack of band members," Andrew commented in the previous press release. "With Titles With The Word Fountain I felt stripped of that burden and more free to include work that could be construed as unclear or abstract."

Earlier this year Mute released 1/1, Liars' first soundtrack, which was actually recorded when Hemphill was still in the band.

9/28 - Melbourne, Australia - ACMI Late Nights
