Liquid State are making some serious moves over in the UK at the moment. Delivering a blend of frantic, intricate post-hardcore, littered with atmospheric builds and soaring pop moments, they are on the hottest of streaks right now. And they are continuing that in some style with their latest single, “Russian Roulette“.

Sitting on the heavier side of the band’s repertoire, it’s a track that grabs the throat, squeezes and smiles. Rallying riffs, break-neck drums and even a guttural breakdown for good measure. It’s bound to get moshpits spinning up and down the country. But the part that sticks out the most is vocalist Keren Ashley. With incredible control over her delivery and tone, bleeding everything she has into every word she utters, it’s a spine-tingling display. The result is a track that showcases a band at the height of their powers. And they are still only getting started.

Keren had this to say about the track and what it represents to her:

“It’s really about the battle so many of us have with ourselves. How it can feel as if there’s another voice inside of us that tries to lead us astray and take us down from within. It can feel so comforting to listen and lean into it when it feels like there’s nothing else, but it really never moves us in the right direction. That inner voice might be a part of us but it’s not what defines us as people.”

The track is the second release from Liquid State this year. It follows on “Cynical“, a pulsating piece of raucous energy that shows off even more of the magic that they have in their arsenal.
