Pitchfork   The Dissolve   Festivals: Chicago | Paris

We appreciated the days when Hedi Slimane worked with promising unknown bands on runway soundtracks, but that doesn't diminish our enthusiasm for a good fashion week collaboration. Hedi Slimane and Liars made for a fine team at Saint Laurent's Women's Spring/Summer '13, Collection VIII show at Paris Fashion Week. Liars frontman Angus Andrew remixed the "Mr Your On Fire Mr" single as a 19-minute, punky-dance epic for Slimane's Saint Laurent show. It maintains intensity and heightens the experience, never settling in as background music. No easy feat. 

For the latest video from their album WIXIW, Liars used a hacked Kinect camera, and open source software to manipulate video footage into what looks like an evolving and morphing graphic map. The clip is actually a sequel of sorts, and according to director Markus Wambsganss, the video is the next step in the triptych style the band started in the "The Other Side Of Mt. Heart Attack" video.

WIXIW is out now on Mute, and Liars will be touring through the middle of June.
