Minneapolis indie-pop band Perry Project is set to release their 3rd major release on April 8th. Led by Tracy Perry Jr, the blend of electronic and pop elements features a dreamy, driving vibe that organically culls you into instant intrigue. The new EP titled Liars, Fires features a new direction for the group, moving towards that electronic dynamic, much like The Killers and Tears for Fears.
Music in Minnesota is premiering the music video for the titled track “Liars, Fires” which should puncture a hole in your repeat button. The warbled twinkles in the opening lead to a Korn-inspired heavy bassline and gusto into the song.
Visually it transitions back and forth between a speedup night drive to a daytime skateboarding park. The vocals of Tracy help lift the heavy bass parts and keep a balanced sore to the track. The metallic snare drum also adds distinct energy to the track, beating and keeping the song grounded in its acoustic foundation.

As the upcoming EP was culled from the pandemic and riot-induced past few years here in the Twin Cities, Tracy does a clever lyrical job of hiding the deeper meaning of the song while giving enough out that you can relate to. The explosive bridge at 2 minutes in pulls forth the hook that warrants that repeat button. The momentous angst that bleeds forth is infectious and feeds the new dynamics Perry Project is moving towards.
While originally created as a solo project while living in Seattle, Tracy had a renewed intention to bring his songs to life after serving in the US Air Force. His move to Minneapolis added some collaborators and connections to local producers, fleshing out his songs. Stay tuned for an exciting album on April 8th, through all of his socials.
