Biography

Vancouver BC, Canada (2008 - Present)

Call it summertime synth. Vancouver band Young Liars have earned a loyal audience, forged by a reputation for explosive live shows, performing alongside Minus the Bear, CSS, and STRFKR and headlining showcases at Rifflandia festival and NXNE. Now, the band embarks on a new journey with their debut album, Tidal Wave, a sonic seachange that focuses their energy into a blissed-out sound powered by understated grooves and well- mannered rock. The beginning of Young Liars was all about timing. It formed, as bassist Andrew Beck says, “from a combination of old bands breaking up, a few members staying together and a friend of a friend joining along the way.” Drummer Tyler Badali and Beck formed the group with singer and guitarist Jordan Raine, later Wes Nickel signed on to play keys. Together they forged a unified sound and live show that made the dream of music- making into a reality. Their Homesick Future EP seeped across the internet, earning accolades and populating music blogs, digital mixtapes, and best-of lists. For their upcoming album Tidal Wave, the band recorded at Greenhouse studios in Vancouver with producer Tyler Johnson, who worked on their debut EP. Over the course of a year, the band crafted their sound, an evolution that was “quite labour intensive,” Beck says. Badali designed the artwork for the album in house, creating images through photo manipulation.
