SUPPORT FOR ‘I DON’T WANT TO BE ME’
“A zesty bright masterclass in in indie punk, filled with swagger and attitude.”
Backseat Mafia (UK/AUS)
Newcastle-based indie-rock group Liquid Zoo have today revealed their superlative new single ‘I Don’t Want To Be Me’ – produced and mixed by Jack Nigro (Pacific Avenue, The Terrys, Skegss).
Beginning with a subtle bass riff before ascending into textural harmony, ‘I Don’t Want To Be Me’ is a colourful slice of euphonious virtuosity driven by fuzz-laden guitars and charismatic melodies. Seeping with poised indie instrumentation, the song’s structure establishes a sense of familiarity, as rich gang vocals accentuate the anthemic hook.
The band talk about the meaning behind ‘I Don’t Want To Be Me’:
“The song is about coming to the realisation that your past actions were wrong and how that affects those around you and pondering the idea of not wanting to be yourself as a self-punishment. We wanted to present this melancholy idea in a happier contradictory light.”
Previous releases from Liquid Zoo have seen support from Australian tastemakers triple j Unearthed, and their discography has accumulated over a quarter of a million streams across DSP platforms.
Since their inception, the band has traversed the East Coast of Australia, playing to capacity rooms at local venues and house parties. In the live arena, they have shared the stage with homegrown luminaries Psychedelic Porn Crumpets, Pacific Avenue, King Stingray and The Lazy Eyes.
‘I Don’t Want To Be Me’ is available worldwide now
