Published Jun 17, 2014Although they initially formed back in 2008, Vancouver synth-pop outfit Young Liars have yet to issue a full-length recording. That's all about to change, as the emotive quartet are ready to follow-up their recently released Night Window EP with their first-ever LP.
The band's upcoming Nettwerk Records release, Tidal Wave, won't be crashing onto shelves until June 24. While you wait, tide yourself over by streaming their debut full-length on Exclaim.ca.
Produced by Digory Smallz at Vancouver's Greenhouse Studios, the album finds the four-piece channelling the infectious energy that defined their Homesick Future EP and pushing their sound to even broader territories.
Starting out with the shimmering swells of album opener "An Odyssey Love," the West Coast crew surf through a sea of cascading synths (the album's title track), cresting briefly for a pair of indie pop numbers (lead single "Night Window" and "Supertramp") before cashing into the frothy abyss of comforting closer "Ocean Arms."
