As if we’ve ever stopped gushing over Dylan in the first place, her new single is all we want to talk about! ‘Liar Liar’ (ft. BASTILLE) has us in a chokehold in the absolute best way. This is a song that’s about to join our “all-time Dylan-favorites” list right next to ‘You’re Not Harry Styles!’ Not to mention the magic that happens when you add BASTILLE into the mix of this track. We can’t help but gush over anything Dan Smith puts his hands on. So this was made specifically for us honeybees!
‘Liar Liar’ is an upbeat synth-powered banger that is sure to get you up and grooving while you finally hit the block button on that person who can’t ever seem to just tell you the truth. Dylan and Dan’s friendship blossomed while they toured together recently, which makes it an even better combination! Not to mention Dylan stated that this track was one that she and Dan created right after she had written nine others that week. We can’t say we’re surprised that she’s been cranking out banger after banger, but we will never stop admiring her for it!
“Look at what you’ve done to me… you’re a liar, liar…”
The song is about deception from someone that you put your full trust in. When it came to recording the vocals, I very sheepishly suggested Dan recorded the second verse, just in case he wanted to be a part of it, which luckily he ended up doing! What is so lovely about this song is it was written a couple of months ago, in a matter of hours, with no pre-plan on it being a feature. Normally songs take huge amounts of time to see the light of day, but this one managed to slip through the cracks very quickly, with one of my favorite artists being a part of
Dylan, in conversation about ‘Liar Liar’
The track isn’t the only thing that you can obsess over. The music video is equally encapsulating and awe-inspiring! It follows both Dylan and Dan throughout the song with two separate storylines. While Dylan has told us her storyline is one of broken trust and love, Dan’s is left for us to decide. Which is a task we obviously jumped right on! Our storyline for Dan is one of him drinking to numb the pain of losing someone he loved because they just wouldn’t stop lying.
What are your thoughts on Dan’s storyline in the video? And how many times have you streamed ‘Liar Liar’ so far? We’re already in triple digits, if we’re being genuine!
