"Liquid Lives" is the second single by British band Hadouken!. The single reached the top 40 in the UK and currently the album's best selling single.

Background[edit]

The song deals with the binge drinking habits of the British people, and how it affects different people, like as quoted "a girl who gets date raped". Also mentioned is a man who "fell off his horse and shot himself", and "a drunk driver".[1]

Music video[edit]

Like previous single "That Boy That Girl", the video was directed and created by Bobby Harlow, and after the success of "That Boy That Girl" they decided to shoot a more professional video as previously the music video had been shot in a friend's bedroom.[citation needed]

The video works around the band playing in a club like room lite with UV lighting and paints, with "Hadouken!" written all over the walls as well as other art and writing. There are people dancing around the band, whilst covered in UV paint. The cameras are mounted on the band's instruments and equipment as well as some other points of the room.[2]
