I’ve mentioned before how I love Palladia. It has been a good source for me to find new music I may want to listen to.
One band I saw during some European festival they aired was White Lies. The song Farewell to the Fairground really caught my ear. I finally got around to checking them out on iTunes and ended up downloading their entire album To Lose My Life.
I fucking love it!! They have the sound I absolutely love: 80’s English Moody Pop – with thick bass lines, clanging guitars, catchy beats, and moody lyrics. These guys probably weren’t even born during the heyday of New Order, The Cure and Depeche Mode but damned if they don’t capture that feeling in their sound.
I’m also impressed with their website. I’ve never seen one like it and it is really exciting to have it launch with a live performance – that’s how I got into them and it looks great.
The song I am most obsessed with is the title track. It has been blasting in my car and reminds me of a little show I love beyond all reason:
Let’s grow old together and die at the same time – how damn fitting is that for a pair of Sexy Undead Vampire Brothers like The Salvatores??
