“Lie To Me” is the raucous, hook-laden second single from Del Caesar’s upcoming sophomore release, EP 2 (out 11/11 through the band’s imprint Reheated Spaghetti). Already drawing comparisons to garage heroes like The Kinks and The Standells, Del Caesar’s sound embodies retro riff-driven garage rock with a psychedelic bent.

Del Caesar is comprised of frontman/songwriter/guitarist Aaron Lloyd Barr, who doubles as a visual artist by day, and Eric Arikian (Let’s Be Loveless) on bass and Ben Reynolds (Slang King) on drums. Recorded straight to tape, EP 2’s sound embodies riff-driven, upbeat garage rock, snarling in a way that betrays some swagger, but never hostility. Their lyrics that point to the everyday: relationships, ambitions, stuff we all experience, combined with a stripped-down mono recording sound that leaves us with songs that could have been recorded last month or in 1965.
