LA altrock group Charming Liars have just released the animated video for their new single “Soul.” The video, directed by The Jiménez Brothers (SHARPBALL), chronicles a day in the life of two fantastical characters with hints of supernatural powers, looking to make good on past relationships. The video underscores the almost anthemic positivity of the song – a song that sees Charming Liars headed in new, exciting, directions. Vocalist Kiliyan Maguire explains: “Soul is a song that symbolizes the passion one has when chasing their dreams and embracing the ups and downs that come with it.”
Fans can watch the animated video here and purchase the single on iTunes here. “Soul” is featured on the band’s forthcoming record titled 12:31AM which will be
released on May 27th. In other news, Elton John will be spotlighting “Soul” and
Charming Liars via his “Rocket Hour” radio show on Beats 1 this Monday (4/18). Fans can listen to the show here.
