Indie-Rocker Pigeon Club Shares Lush New Single/Video “Liar”

Examining the aftermath of a defense mechanism malfunction, with both humor and heart

Pigeon Club’s latest single, “Liar,” is a lush indie rock vehicle that examines the aftermath of a defense mechanism malfunction, with both humor and heart.

“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.

Pigeon Club is the music of Wayne Whittaker, a multi-instrumentalist musician/songwriter living in Los Angeles. Outside of his own project, Whittaker has worked with artists such as Dawes, Diane Coffee, Haerts, and countless others.

Sonically, Pigeon Club has built its nest neatly between genres. There are the ubiquitous indie singer-songwriter overtones, jangly Beatle power-pop moments galore, and self-aware nods to “dad rock.”

Pigeon Club’s upcoming second full-length album, Another Year In The Minors, is slated for a spring 2024 release.
