Rock music in deconstruction from the critically acclaimed Liars and local psych explorers HYG.

Liars are back with The Apple Drop. This mixing of raw, organic live instrumentation in the studio, along with solo tinkering, results in an album that blurs boundaries between the archetypal band structure and experimental electronics. “Momentum and revolution were themes I wanted to explore, to give the listener this sense of transformation and to feel like you were being transported through the wormhole,” Angus from Liars explains.

HYG are one of Canberra’s favourite underground live acts, filling out living rooms and band nights across town. Their 2020 single ‘Be Here’ saw airplay on 3RRR, 3PBS and 2SER, and a ‘Wild One’ feature on Rage. Delving deeper into their recordings for 2021, while aiming to capture the loose intensity of their live shows, there is a refreshed energy emanating from the band as they emerge from lockdown into a world of their own.

Ainslie Salon is presented by Ainslie and Gorman Arts Centres with support from the ACT Government’s Amp It Up! funding initiative.
