Silver Liz‘s self-released new track, “There’s No Need,” is out today.
Silver Liz is the Chicago-based project of husband-wife duo Carrie and Matt Wagner. Following up to their 2017 debut album I Can Feel The Weight, they are slowly teasing their sophomore full-length album, which is due out sometime in 2021. After their bedroom shoegaze cut “Microwave S’mores,” they have now unveiled “There’s No Need,” a single which surprisingly switches their dreamy guitars for club-ready arrangements. Reminiscent of The Field, Ross from Friends and Jamie xx, this lo-fi track opens a new field of possibilities but remains hazy at its core.
“The cliché thing to do for a celebratory dance track like this would be to make it about going out and having fun with your friends. But instead, we thought it would be funny to make it about doing the exact opposite,” they explained. “Now, during quarantine, the lyrics might sound a bit imperative. But for us, the track actually is celebratory. Most days, we love having an excuse to stay in and work on music.”
