Amongst Liars have released their second single, a fantastic reworked version of the Saint Apache song “Wolf Machine”. It was an obvious choice for me as Track of the Day. I loved the original version and this one is just as brilliant.

Wolf Machine is written about challenging those in a position of authority and power, not accepting that the hand that we’ve been dealt should define who we are; calling out inept governments run by power-hungry politicians. “Bring down the wolf machine” is chanted throughout the song, which resonates with so many of our world’s population, who are tired of the ‘same old’ mentality.
Amongst Liars are a tight and formidable powerhouse of a band; urgent, questioning, loud and fierce.
Together they play heavy and direct rock’n’roll: massive riffs and powerful, melodic choruses, fuzzy guitar, pummelling drums and throbbing bass, pin-balling between heavy alternative rock, grunge and punk. They also have a lyricist who can’t help but use his band as a platform to air his anxieties about the world around him. “I would never pigeonhole us as a ‘political band’,” Ian (vocals/guitar) explains. “We’re not preaching at anyone or trying to change the world. We’re just saying these are the things that affect and concern us.”
