If you like The Lemonheads, Best Kissers in the World, or maybe even early Goo Goo Dolls (when they were good), then Terrible Liars is for you.
Terrible Liars are a band from Ottawa (man Ottawa has a wicked scene right now) and they just happen to play messy, punky, power pop a lot like the bands mentioned above. It’s a sound I personally will never get tired of. I stumbled upon their demo looking for something else, I love it when that happens.
With a bit of digging I found that the band used to go by the name Brendan Flynn and the Terrible Liars and had more of a Ryan Adams roots sound, which was pretty good as well. But I must say I like the new direction if that’s what it is.
“30th Birthday” is a poppy number and pretty radio friendly through all the crashing drums, buzzing guitars and drunk harmonies.
“A Sexy Interview with Deion Sanders”, yes that’s the title, sounds like a cross between Montreal’s Doughboys and Tim-era Replacements.
Very promising stuff from a band to watch.
