Album cover artwork for LiarsAngus Andrew, the creative force behind Liars, explores uncharted musical territory on the project’s 10th album, favouring unconventional soundscapes which yields impressive returns.

On track Slow and Turn Inward, intricately layered sounds reveal traditional instrumentation, Andrew’s vocal shepherding the tonal shift with its trademark dejection. Big Appetite builds in spectacular fashion,the crescendo seeing Andrew bellowing with an urgency that is imposing. Similarly, Star Search wields an unshakeable intensity before transforming completely to a contrasting call and response. A record with many twists and turns,the biggest takeaway is that Andrew has a singular artistic vision, one that has produced the best record of his career.

The Apple Drop by Liars is out now via Mute/PIAS.
