On Our Radar: lié makes guitar music sound alive and amphetamined with the video for "Fill It Up"

    1 of 2 2 of 2

      Landspeed drums, a bass sound that suggests Matt Freeman mainlaining the early Stranglers, and a video that seems like a weird conflux of Tobe Hooper, Bobcat Goldthwait's terrifying Willow Creek, and the 2017 edition of Twin Peaks

      For all these reasons and more, you need to make Vancouver's lié your new favourite band.

      At a time when rock, punk, indie, chillwave, and every other six-string subgenre seems pretty much dead, it's good to know that someone is making old-fashioned guitar music sound thrillingly alive. 

      Don't forget to buckle up before hitting play, amphetamines not totally required, but guaranteed to increase the rush.
