Kingsley Flood – Water Liars

In 2010, Kingsley Flood released their first full-length album, “Dust Windows” to critical acclaim and widespread fan love. In 2011, the band released a five song EP, “Colder Still” with tracks that were touted by NPR, Esquire and Paste magazines, amongst others, and solidified their reputation as a soulful, and raw rock band with a fiery and dynamic live show.

But Kingsley Flood has no plans to stand still, recording its latest full-length – its most honed, complex, and meaningful project to date – with producer Sam Kassirer (Josh Ritter, Langhorne Slim) in an 18th century farmhouse in rural Maine. Amplifying the band’s pension for dynamics, the sound blends Dylan-esque storytelling, wistful, Kinks-ian pop, and the urgency of the Clash.

The DC and Boston-based sextet contrasts old and new – jangly acoustic guitars with spikey electrics, gentle violins with rogue keyboards – while honoring hooks and melody. The fiery show earned them the title of “Boston’s best live band” by the Boston Herald.

Water Liars is Andrew Bryant and Justin Kinkel-Schuster. They met on tour some time ago and have been friends ever since. Named after the first story in Barry Hannah’s collection Airships, Water Liars began by accident in Pittsboro, MS in late 2011. Justin, who previously spent some time in a St. Louis-based band named Theodore, writes the songs and Andrew makes them better.

The new Water Liars record Wyoming was made in Water Valley, MS in September 2012. Weighted with accumulated evidence from experience, it’s likely to stab anyone who may hear it in the gut and the heart. And then they’ll turn the record over again.

Their first album Phantom Limb was the product of the aforementioned accident; a collection of songs, recorded without aim over one weekend at Bryant’s house in Pittsboro, released by Misra Records in March 2012.
