LIES, the project from American Football members and cousins Mike Kinsella and Nate Kinsella, have shared a new single.

Out now via Big Scary Monsters, the catchy, propulsive Camera Chimera follows the two-track release Blemishes/Echoes back in May, their August single Summer Somewhere, and September's Corbeau. Mike Kinsella explained:

"Camera Chimera is about the scary - and often crippling - side effects of interacting / existing on social media. It’s about not only feeling manipulated by others, but also being confronted with the reality and consequences of your own lies and manipulation, and how that can mentally and emotionally cause one to spiral."

"Our inspiration for the video started with the meaning behind the creature of the single title, a chimera, or a mythical hybrid creature," explained director Rachel Cabbit of POND Creative.

"Through the lens of the viewer, we wanted Nate and Mike to become more and more distorted as the video went on, a hybrid form of themselves. We leaned into our abstract analog technique of printing and scanning thousands of frames to further the distortion to create a mysterious lo-fi visual that lives alongside LIES' new releases."
