Artist: Young Liars, Album: Colours - Single, Song: Colours

Young Liars are a 5pc band from Vancouver, British Columbia.  They create electronic pop music in the same vein as bands like France's Phoenix or Sweden's Miike Snow.  Anybody unfamiliar with those two acts should seek out the songs, Too Young (Phoenix) and Burial (Miike Snow).  Beautiful stuff.  However, not to digress because The Young Liars are as good as these aforementioned bands.  The Young Liars are Jordan Raine, Tyler Badali, Andrew Beck, Angelo Ismirnioglou and Wesley Nickel.  They've been creating significant buzz on the Vancouver indie scene since 2010, playing sold out shows in Canada as well as the U.S..  Their music is both pop sensible and infectious.  They find their influences in artists as diverse as David Bowie and New Order.  They are all multi-instrumentalists and despite the electronic nature of the music, the band performs all of their music live.  They originally released their debut EP independently over a year ago but have recently signed with Nettwerk Records and a re-release is scheduled within the coming months.  The lead single, Colours, is currently available on Itunes along with some alternate mixes.  You can check out the track on You Tube (  You can follow the band at  The band is currently working on their first full length release that will hopefully be available in 2012 sometime and are also playing shows in the Greater Vancouver area.  Thanks for reading and enjoy!
