Lowlives have dropped new single ‘Liar’, to pronounce their signing to Spinefarm Music.
The West Coast band have released a string of independent singles and EPs and drummer Luke Johnson has shared his thoughts on what the move means for them, saying:
“We started this band with almost zero expectations. We just wanted to write music. At that point we weren’t even sure if this band would play live. Since then it’s been a complete 180.
“A hard path of pulling favours, blagging shows, putting songs out with very little help, besides a select few who saw the vision.
“To be here today, with a release partner like Spinefarm is such an achievement for us. We couldn’t be more excited to work with a world-class team.”

Discussing the new track, guitarist and vocalist Lee Downer has explained:
“I wrote ‘Liar’ right in the middle of the first Covid lockdown.
“Once the panic had kinda settled down, the song came together in about 10 minutes. Lyrically it started out about putting on a brave face pretending that I was OK throughout it when I probably wasn’t… almost convincing myself that everything would be alright.
“When we worked on the demo I’d written at Luke’s studio, we wrote the rest of the lyrics and it became more about being someone you’re not. Feeling like you don’t fit in, to the point of creating a fake world in an attempt to feel more comfortable.
“You really want to tell the truth, but you’re bought in to the lies so much that they have become your own personal truth.”
LOWLIVES released their debut EP ‘Burn Forever’ in 2018 and, more recently, shared their ‘Freaking Out’ single in May.
