Video of the Moment #2155: White Lies

By on Friday, 5th August 2016 at 6:00 pm

West London trio White Lies made waves back in June when they returned to the fold with a new song. The single ‘Take It Out on Me’ stars on the band’s upcoming fourth album, which is scheduled for release in early October. To read my thoughts on the first taster from their new record, go here. For the promo video to accompany the single, the trio went into what might be considered an unusual direction to the casual listener. Not so if you’ve been following Harry McVeigh, Charles Cave and Jack Lawrence-Brown since the beginning and you’ve been paying to the words of their more morbidly titled songs (‘Death’, ‘Unfinished Business’). Even as a long-time fan, I found this promo more than unsettling, confused in the different stories presented and then in McVeigh’s ghostly presence later in the second half of the video. See what you think by watching the video below.

‘Friends’, White Lies’ fourth album and follow-up to 2013’s ‘Big TV’, is scheduled to be released on the 7th of October on Fiction Records. For more on White Lies on TGTF, follow this link.
