Max Reebo’s Pick of the Week: “Young Liars”

March 18, 2019 at 1:18 pm | Posted in Max Reebo Pick of the Week, Music, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

Max Reebo’s pick this week is “Young Liars” by TV on the Radio.

There are songs that are fun, some that make you want to dance, and others that take you away in arms of their rhythm. “Young Liars” by TV on the Radio is a song that just captures the beauty of sound with whimsical vocals and a crafty beat.

Formed in 2001, TV on the Raido is a Brooklyn band with five albums. Tunde Adebimpe is on vocals, David Andrew Sitek is on guitar, keyboards, drums, and other instruments, Kyp Malone is on vocals, guitar, and bass, and Gerard Smith and Jaleel Bunton are on various instruments. The song “Young Liars” showed up on an EP with the same name in 2003 which garnered critical acclaim.
