Melbourne rock outfit Mid City have dropped the official music video for their latest single, ‘Liar Liar’.
In a press release, lead vocalist Joel Griffiths – who directed and filmed the video – said it serves as a visual representation of the idea of running from one’s own truth.
“I was holed up for isolation on a farm outside of Byron and would walk through these cane fields early in the morning or at dusk,” Griffiths explains.
“I figured it was the perfect location to shoot a one-man clip. It’s got both, this really beautiful, light and ambience in all this tall cane but also quietly freaky as fuck. Like some kind of spooky supernatural-ness is about to come out of nowhere to abduct me. Suffice to say I didn’t stick around doing extra takes for long post sunset.”

With an anthemic chorus and indie-rock sensibilities, ‘Liar Liar’ boasts a big energy. It’s the second time MID CITY have had one of their songs produced by Holy Holy‘s Oscar Dawson.
‘Liar Liar’ follows the March release of ‘Forget It’, a song Griffith explained was “inspired by a case of gaslighting long after the relationship in question was over”.
“This song is as much me shaking myself by the shoulders as it is, hopefully, a story to help others.”
Both singles are taken from the group’s forthcoming EP, ‘Wishing For The Best’, whose release date is yet to be announced. The EP is set to be the follow-up to MID CITY’S debut EP ‘Die Waiting’, released in April 2019.
