What does it mean to have "soul" in music? It's one of those "x" factors in contemporary music, and it's absolutely something you either have or you don't. I'm not sure that I can be tought. But I'm basically speaking in tautologies right now. If you asked me what "soul" really boils down...what it means as part of the definition of a musician's sound, it's emotional sincerity, and it's something that UK alternative rockers Charming Liars
have in spades.
We've got the exclusive premiere of Charming Liars' latest single, "Soul," and if you have any love for arena ready, anthemic pop-rock, this band is for you. There's a little bit of Imagine Dragons, a little bit of 90s alt, and more sing-along hooks than you can shake a stick at. They're heading out on tour with Blaqk Audio and Night Riots in the US in May (and you know how much we love Night Riots
). Dig this track and be on the hype train before they hit our shores next month. You won't regret it.
