It’s been three years since UK band White Lies released their Big TV record. This Friday 10/7, the wait will be over with the new release of Friends. Their sound is very post-punk and 80s new wave, filled with saturated choruses. It’s just what the doctor ordered for busy early autumn vibes before the holidays.
This danceable indie rock brings me back to the undergrad days at the beginnings of Arcade Fire, Interpol and the Killers. For me this meant cold upstate New York winters, early sunsets, cheap beer, good friends and hope for the future. Check out “Take It Out On Me” below.
