Pigeon Club examines the aftermath of a defense mechanism malfunction in 'Liar'

The musical project of Wayne Whittaker, Pigeon Club is a multi-instrumentalist musician/songwriter living in Los Angeles. His upcoming second album, 'Another Year In The Minors', is another collaboration with Grammy winning co-producers John Would and Amy Wood (Fiona Apple, Warren Zevon). Together, along with a stellar group of friends/ backing musicians, they unwittingly managed to document a major transitional period in the life of the songwriter.

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." As a songwriter, Wayne explores themes of self-reflection, doubt, anxiety, and the minutiae of everyday life with an inviting mixture of emotional transparency and self-effacing humor.

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.”

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.
