Indie art pop duo, Little Fuss have released “She’s a Liar,” the third part from their cinematic, nine-chapter concept album, Girls At Parties. Arriving just after “Guardian Angel,” “She’s a Liar” was inspired by the short story Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, which follows a woman who is berated and gaslit by her husband to the point where she begins a downward spiral of stress, anxiety, and the feeling of insanity after interacting with a version of herself within the walls. The track focuses on the negative mental spiral and encapsulates how one’s own mental health can leave them feeling stagnant. Listen to it now below.
“There are a lot of reasons behind anxiety attacks and mental spirals and doubting your own sanity,” Olivia Martinez explains, adding, “… but regardless of the reason, it is not a fun experience. I hope if anyone hears this song and relates to it, they know that they don’t deserve to feel that way and that they should find the help they need to feel better and trust their own sense of self and sanity.”
“She’s a Liar” continues to highlight the creative versatility of Olivia Martinez and Cody Von Lehmden – the duo behind Little Fuss – as artists and storytellers. All three 90’s-esque power-pop-twinged tracks (“She’s a Liar”, “Guardian Angel” and “Girls At Parties”) swirl vividly around the misery of the song’s specific protagonist, and serve as a searing commentary on grief, anxiety, and other mental health topics.
