“Liar” By Pigeon Club

Pigeon Club AKA: is the Los Angeles based project of multi-artist Wayne Whittaker, Outside of Pigeon Club, Whittaker has worked with artists such as Dawes, Diane Coffee, Haerts, and countless others. As a songwriter, Wayne explores themes of self-reflection, doubt, anxiety, and the minutiae of everyday life with an inviting mixture of emotional transparency and self-effacing humor.

Pigeon Club’s forthcoming album, Another Year In The Minors, is another collaboration with Grammy winning co-producers John Would and Amy Wood (Fiona Apple, Warren Zevon). Together, along with a stellar group of friends/ backing musicians, they unwittingly managed to document a major transitional period in the life of the songwriter.

“This was a really hard song to write,” Whittaker recalls, “structurally, it came together very quickly. But once I read it back, it became clear that this was going to be a particularly exposing three minutes. Thankfully, the touched upon themes are unmistakably human, so at the very least I’ve confirmed that I am indeed only human.”

Survival skill for those unfit

To handle what we’re dealing with Seek a softer landing

The damage notwithstanding

Lyrically, parts of the song read like a relational autopsy report.

We’ve reached the point where you’ll admit You don’t know who you’re living with

You could see right through me If I let you closer to me
But I’m a liar

The accompanying music video for ‘Liar’ sees a traveling entertainer and his puppet sidekick struggle to engage with an audience using card tricks, sleight of hand, and some honest-to-goodness magic. It’s clear that however successful the illusion, this game of deception is taking its toll. But the show, of course, must go on.

Another Year In The Minors is slated for a spring 2024 release. Pre-order HERE
