Converting crippling anxiety into gritty pop gold, Liza Anne has announced her debut album for Arts & Crafts ‘Fine But Dying’; the album is out in March 2018. It’s a fearless and biting exploration of Liza’s own psyche and the demons that live within it.
Recorded at La Frette studios in Paris and produced by Zachary Dyke, ‘Fine But Dying’ sees Liza treading new sonic territories inhabited by unforgettable pop hooks and gritty, distorted guitar licks. To accompany the announcement, Liza released the video for lead single ‘Paranoia’. The track is a driving vignette about her panic anxiety disorder.
It’s her most confessional work to date. A portrait of a woman coming to terms with heartbreak, mental illness, and the changing tides of adulthood. It’s also an album of dualities, one that reveals an artist who is tough and vulnerable all at once.
“This is my woman at her wildest self album”, said Liza, and the songs cement that. Her crystalline voice is alternately beguiling and jarring as she sets her distress to music on “Panic Attack”. She sneers and snarls her way through the third-wave feminist anthem of “Kid Gloves”. And standout track “Closest To Me” is the sister song to “Paranoia”; which is a stirring track that shows Liza reflecting inward towards her flaws.
