Mike and Nate Kinsella — cousins who’ve pioneered underground music in bands like Cap’n Jazz, American Soccer, Joan Of Arc, and Make Consider — launched their first two songs underneath a brand new undertaking, LIES, final Could. Now, the Kinsellas are saying their self-titled debut album as LIES. It’ll be out later in March and options the lead single “Resurrection,” which comes with a music video directed by Atiba Jefferson.
“‘Resurrection’ is a celebration track about reawakening part of the self that has been hidden away in hibernation,” shares Nate, who provides in regards to the music video: “We used mirrors and a few digicam angle trickery to superimpose our heads onto the our bodies of a few skilled dancers, whose actions illustrate a sort of unselfconscious pleasure and freedom – emotions that perhaps we’ve a tough time accessing, or tapping into. I hope the video transmits the sense of enjoyable and liberation that we envisioned (and skilled!) when making it.”
Mike chimes in: “I’m not used to placing any gold-linings or a lot of any optimistic spin into my songs (there’s already sufficient of that rubbish present on the planet), however writing about conquering no matter disgrace and guilt I’ve for no matter needs and wishes I’ve, felt cathartic / virtually therapeutic for me. The method of writing it and expressing the worth in truly believing it has helped me really feel extra assured and warranted with who I’m and what I would like (dare I say, ‘want’…).”
Take heed to and watch “Resurrection” beneath.
