Charming Liars are back with another new track. ‘Blame’ which follows their successful release of Golden State.
On the new song, the band shares: “’Blame’ is an explosive anthem asking for one more shot at love from your last late-night call. What happens when the lights fade and the drinks dry up? When your memory starts to dive deep into the wreckage of lovers’ past? Blame.”
Charming Liars’ evolution began in London’s West End when guitarist Karnig Manoukian and bassist Mike Kruger were still in their teens. Both came from homes with wide-ranging and eclectic musical tastes, and that early exposure informed their approach to making music.
They started writing and playing together in a series of bands and honed their musicianship with several tours up and down the U.K. In 2013 they decided to make the move to Los Angeles, in part spurred on by an encouraging social media message from songwriter and producer John Feldmann (Panic! at the Disco, Plain White T’s, 5 Seconds of Summer, Blink-182) – who told them to look him up for a songwriting session if they were ever in town.
The two connected with vocalist Kiliyan Maguire through a mutual friend while he was attending The Musicians Institute in Hollywood. Through initial conversations that lead to songwriting and then recording sessions – the 3 realized that they had an organic musical chemistry that would lead to interesting possibilities.
