Playlist: Delaire, The Liar’s influences

To coincide with their new video ‘Medicine’ we caught up with Delaire, The Liar to get a playlist of their influences.


Ffin (guitar and vocals)

Careful – Paramore

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I challenge anyone to find a song that bangs more than this track. Zac Farro hits the drums SO hard it makes my teeth rattle and I am here for that.




I Don’t Wanna Be Blind – Turnstile

Bass tone, finger pointing and that “I don’t wanna be BbbBbbllllLllLLLLLIIIIIIIIIIIIIINNNNND”. I am IN.



Your Dog – Soccer Mommy

Weird one this cause the lyrics are poignant af and it’s true that I don’t want to be mistreated and undervalued but on the other hand I absolutely would love to be a dog. Great big smash hit either way



Joey (drums)

Hiding – Pianos Become the Teeth

These guys banged back in 2010 when they were screamo ledge boys and they still bang now as melancholy sad guys. That being said, I do feel like Hiding represented a middle ground between two distinct phases of the band that I wish had been explored more.



What Sarah Said – Death Cab For Cutie

Plans is one of my favourite albums of all time. I think I first heard it when I was about 14 or 15, and I revisit it every now and again. As I’ve grown older I’ve found different parts of it speak to me in different ways, but that it still resonates with me in a way few records ever have. Also some of the drum parts on this album are certifiably rocking.



Move Along – The All American Rejects

Like with Paramore, I DEFY anyone to find a song that’s more fun to smash along to on the drums. I don’t even really know what the guy is going on on about ‘moving along’ from because I’m too busy shredding maximum tubs.
