Alt-rock trio Delaire The Liar have revealed they will be releasing a new EP called ‘Self Defence’ through Rude Records on September 1st. As a preview, they’ve shared its opening track – ‘angel number’.

The track captures the three-piece’s emotionally rich and musically sturdy sound. With Ffin Colley (vocals), being joined by Em Lodge (bass) and Chaz Tomlinson (drums) in recent years, Delaire The Liar are now a firm and revitalised unit with ‘angel number’ exemplifying their ability to be equally fragile and frenzied.

Alongside ‘angel number’Delaire The Liar‘s new EP will include three tracks with one of them being the previously released ‘bite trap’.

Thematically, ‘Self Defence’ will consist of fictitious scenarios that question the idea of self-defence.

On announcing the EP, Delaire The Liar shared the following comment:

“In the throes of desperation, there’s no telling the lengths a person will go to preserve themselves or their loved ones. This EP presents a series of fictional scenarios to challenge the typical understanding of self defence. The usual themes surrounding the topic are present; antagonism, violence, action and reaction, but with a focus on the more drastic instances that require a less reflexive and more considered approach. Instances that require a deeper understanding of the self, emotional capacity for pain, physical capacity for punishment, moral detachment and sacrifice for the benefit of yourself or someone else. This EP explores whether there is any defence too drastic or too difficult to justify when love, pride and responsibility is involved.”
