Former X-Factor teenage star Luke Friend, returns and shines with this new single called ‘Liar’, a smoothly soulful bass-heavy tune, hued by a subtly UK Garage vibe.

The 22-year-old Devon singer and songwriter explains: “‘Liar’ was inspired by heartbreak, but there’s a lot more to it than that. It’s what happens between two torn apart lovers, things turn ugly rather quickly, nothing was the same again, anger and frustration definitely played a part. Inspiration came from my life taking a quick, drastic turn. You know that sinking feeling you get when something’s not quite right? That’s how I felt, I literally wrote a song about that – the rejection.

I was going through one of the toughest times of my life, the only way I knew how to deal with the situation was to write a song about it. So I thought, ‘Hey! I need to stop suffering and start living again’. Instead of sulking alone in my room because my life wasn’t going how I thought it would, I needed to put the past behind me and hope somewhere within the writing process, I’ll find that little spark I’ve been searching for”

‘Liar’ is released via ex Warner Music Vice President Kieron Donoghue’s indie label Humble Angel Records.
