Los Angeles alt-pop rock outfit Charming Liars are continuing their breakout year with the release of their newest video, “Ocean”, from the band’s latest album Thought, Flesh and Bone.
The Charming Liars touring resume includes recent stints with Dorothy and Welshly Arms, opening sets for Kings of Leon, Weezer, and Jack White. Continuing to build on their growing live presence, the band have just started an extended run as support to Angels & Airwaves across the States, running September through to early October.
Charming Liars began in London’s West End with guitarist and producer Karnig Manoukian and bassist Mike Kruger, who combined their wide ranging and eclectic musical tastes and started making music. In 2013 they decided to make the move to Los Angeles, where they worked with songwriter and producer John Feldmann (Panic! at the Disco, 5 Seconds of Summer, Blink-182) and soon connected with the wildly charismatic singer Kiliyan Maguire.
Since then, Charming Liars released their single “Soul” in 2016 which reached number 40 on the US Alternative Radio Charts and since then follow up singles “Something Dark”, “Like A Drug” and “Insomnia” have all been US Alternative Radio hits and all feature on their debut album Thought, Flesh and Bone which they released earlier this year. They followed with the Bare Bones EP, which has a track listing of reworked and re-imagined acoustic versions of some of their songs, and the band have even been endorsed by none other than Sir Elton John, who has played their music on his Apple Music “Rocket Hour” show.
