Originally from London, United Kingdom, Charming Liars is a British/American Rock band. Now, they are based in Los Angeles, California. They are considered British/American because they have merged the differences to create Charming Liars.
The members of the band are the following: Charlie Cosser (Instagram & Twitter: @charliecosser), Karnig Manoukian (Instagram & Twitter: @karnigmusic), Mike Kruger (Instagram & Twitter: @krugermike), Nick Krein (Instagram & Twitter: @nickkrein), and Zack Riel (Instagram & Twitter: @rielthing @zackary_william). All of the members are active on social media. These individuals worked together to create We Won’t Give Up, which released Monday, May 19, 2014. The Extended Play contained five songs. Three of those songs stood out to me.
Usually, guys stay away from “crazy girls." Not these guys. “My Kind of Crazy” is an ode to seductive adventures. “Bad Girl" states she gives off a demeanor that says, “I don’t care what you think, I’ll do what I want." They acknowledge that she isn’t someone you settle down with, but they are going to go with it. Makes you wonder how this music video would come out?
“Little Scar” is about picking up the pieces and moving on. The past is the past. You cannot change anything about it. If you let go of the past, the massive wounds will turn into a “Little Scar." I would say it is a gentle kick in the rear. They know it is not easy and it will not happen overnight. Still, you have to fight for you. You do not have to go through massive changes to enjoy the song, but you might want to send it to a friend who needs a little tender love and care.
“Fingers Crossed” puts the liar on the spot. It is for all of these people that do and say anything that they can to ensnare people and use them. Especially, for those who are asked about their true feelings. The truth is not a lot to ask. Those who lie to gain things know the truth and can make that conquest disappear. Those who have been deceived by a former or current love will relate to the lyrics.
Overall, there is a little something for everyone. They can be fun and energetic, as well as emotional and vulnerable. I look forward to hearing more from them, and hope they will release a full album in the future. In the meantime, you can purchase We Wont Give Up on iTunes and Amazon.
