‘LIAR!’ slowly creeps into your ears with a soft wave before the beat drops. The clicking tones add to the higher level of the melody before the bass thrums through your chest. There is a touch of groove to the music that swirls into a pop whirlwind of colour. When the chorus hits, there is this infectious beat that vibrates through you and makes you want to dance to the sound.

The opening is all subdued tones of heartbreak and sadness that turns completely on the chorus. As her performance bounces against the melody, she fills you with the strength to leave and move forward.
Hazel and Eternuit combine their styles for the upbeat and uplifting single ‘LIAR!’. The melody packs his soulful bass into the grooving tones of her style. The vocals bring a greater hit of Hazel’s sensibilities while still touching on the old-school soul of Eternuit’s music.
