The name took ages to find! In our Messenger band group we put loads of different ideas and names in, but eventually set on Amongst Liars because it stood out to us as having a strong view towards the world today. It was a good process finding the name though, as we also got a few cool song titles out of it all!
We are an amalgam of two bands, Katalina Kicks and Saint Apache, both of whom had a political edge when it came to the writing, so we didn’t want to lose that ‘real world’ side of what we are about as people moving forwards.
Also the word Liars holds each of our initials, so that cemented the name!
I think each member could reel off different musical influences, which is why we feel we are making some interesting music with all the influences coming together.
The core band influences I would say would be Audioslave, Shinedown, Dinosaur Pile Up, QOTSA, RATM and Royal Blood, that we put our on twist on.
