Vienna Ditto – Liar Liar (EP)
Release Date – 22 April 2013
Picture the scene. A dark plot in a movie or TV show such as CSI or Breaking Bad. The police are looking for clues but getting nowhere. What do you hear in the background? Something dark and mysterious. Those were the first impressions I got as soon as I started listening to Vienna Ditto’s “Liar Liar” EP. The dark twisted sounds, mixed with Hatty Taylor’s soft, soothing voice are the perfect mix of good meets evil.
‘Recorded in a chilly boat, a dank basement and an old temperance hall, Vienna Ditto’s debut EP, Liar Liar, is a DIY diary of their first, turbulent, two years. Recorded and produced by the band themselves, the tapes were then rescued and mixed by Umair Chaudhry at Silver St Studios.’ (Prescription PR)
The EP contains four tracks:
1. Liar Liar
2. The Undefeated
3. Whatever Comes My Way
4. Little Fingers

In the first track, “Liar Liar”, the chorus features an infectious line, ‘Your tongue runs away like your mouth’s on fire.’ If you don’t remember any of the other lines or songs, you’ll be singing that one line over and over.
The rest of the EP continues to follow the dark, mysterious theme as in the first track, which backs up the idea that it would make the perfect soundtrack compliment to a TV show or movie.
“Portishead doing a Tarantino soundtrack” Huw Stephens, Radio 1
“With Smoky-voiced femme fatale Hatty Taylor on vocals, London-based three piece Vienna Ditto mix wild-eyed rockabilly riffs with sparse, atmospheric electronica.” Q Magazine
“Fantastically dirty… one of the catchiest choruses l’ve ever heard… made me want to dance round my bedroom with my hairbrush” Esther Press, The Fly Magazine
With impressive reviews from Q Magazine, Artrocker, and The Fly Magazine, having their debut single played on BBC Radio 1, 6Music, XFM, a TV appearance on Channel 4’s Hollyoaks Music Show, and having already played at Glastonbury in 2009 on the BBC’s Introducing stage, Vienna Ditto are clearly heading for the top!
