“Facts are fiction and fiction’s fiction”, Liars declare on their latest single “Mess On a Mission”. Taking a cue from those paranoid, dizzying lyrics, the track’s accompanying music video is a journey through the fantastical and apocalyptic.
Directed by Luis Cerveró (Oh Land, Battles), the clip sees Liars being transported (or time-traveling?) from one dysfunctional wasteland to another: war-torn medieval castles, decrepit modern cities, a blood-splattered crime scene. At times, the visuals look like scenes from a grisly video game, as each band member is equipped with various “weapons”. Not sure what a tray of cheeseburgers will do, but I’m not a big gamer so what do I know, right? Watch it below.
