Liquid Love is the fourth studio album by New York City synthpop duo Shy Child.

Release[edit]

The band announced in December 2009 that they had completed their fourth album and gave away a free track, Criss Cross, to promote it. A single, Disconnected was released digitally on 7 March.

The original release date. 1 March 2010, was moved back to the 15th. A UK tour was scheduled but vocalist Pete Cafarella suffered concussion, and had to cancel the upcoming tour; the tour was rescheduled for April and May.

Second single Open Up the Sky was released in June.

Liquid Love will be released digitally in the U.S. by Gigantic Music on 21 September 2010, with a vinyl release to follow.

Reviews for the album have been mixed. NME criticized the album, describing it as being "rather lame" compared to their previous album, which they praised. Other reviews, however, praised the album for being reminiscent of retro synthpop albums. Drowned in Sound also praised the album for being cheesy, with "falseto vocals and dumb melodies that prod and niggle at your brain".
