We have long been fans of the criminally underrated and under-appreciated Water Liars, so it is a delight to discover Andrew Bryant (one half of the duo) will release a solo album A Meaningful Connection on the 9th July.
If the album’s got a thesis, it’s this from Drink the Pain Away: “Saying everything is fine when everything feels fucked up is just a lie / I guess I never really learned how to let go of the truth for a lie.” Bryant’s more obsessed than ever with the truth and time. He interrogates his past. What’s real? What’s artifice? What’s home? What’s a meaningful connection mean? How do we kill the loneliness? What happens when something we thought was the truth turns out to be a lie?
