One of the many reasons I am absolutely enamoured by the Melbourne band, Client Liaison is because they take the schtik all the way.

They embody the sound and aesthetic of their music which inevitably delivers something new, something fresh, something fucking cool. Having witnessed their performances on a few occasions I was left wanting more. I want to know what these guys eat, where they live, their internet history, everything.
