Liars were formed in 2000 by Angus Andrew and Aaron Hemphill in Los Angeles. They have released eight studio albums and are signed to Mute Records. Having gone through a number of line-up and genre changes since incarnation, they combine elements of punk-rock with electronica.
The Apple Drop follows Liars’ 2017 album TFCF and 2018’s Titles With the Word Fountain, both of which Andrew made on his own. For The Apple Drop, however, he worked with avant-garde jazz drummer Laurence Pike, multi-instrumentalist Cameron Deyell, and lyricist Mary Pearson Andrew. “For the first time I embraced collaboration from an early stage,” he said in a statement, “allowing the work of others to influence the work of my own.”
Andrew added that The Apple Drop explores themes of momentum and revolution, while he also aimed to create a sense of transformation. “Throughout Liars’ history I have consistently tried to develop new methods of creating music,” Andrew said. “On each project, I’ve essentially abandoned previous methods and attempted to instead learn different ways of writing and producing songs. Where once I perceived this journey as a straight line, I’m increasingly realizing my trajectory is more akin to a spiral. As new ideas are generated, older ones take on new meaning and evolve further.”
Julian Gross (drums) joined Liars in 2004, leaving in 2014. Aaron Hemphill parted amicably with the group in 2017. Angus Andrew has remained the only constant member of the group. They are currently joined by multi-instrumentalist Cameron Deyell and drummer Laurence Pike.
