Second Album Syndrome, “Playing the Game” & The Art of Lying With IST IST

After stellar debut album Architecture, stark and sharp like a black and white filter, Ist Ist are back with their second offering. The Manchester group are independent and vulnerably confident on their sophomore album The Art of Lying, out 26 November. Ingrid Enache caught up with bassist Andy Keating. After an inevitable catch up over daily life and lockdown frustrations, they bonded over music, artwork and genuine impressions about the industry.
