Something of a delectable appetite, White Lies expansive work of To Lose My Life … is their best to date – and Fairwell to the Fairground is no different. Insatiable indie deep-tone rock of the ages, it came at a time when the likes of Editors and Kaiser Chiefs ruled the roster. Although not as sought-after compared to their Northern counterparts, they were – and are – still prevalent as ever in an industry forever churning and twisting in on itself.
Shredding post-punk is something of a foundation that is hard to come by – and White Lies do it with such poise and ease. They are slowly becoming one of my favourite listens this week. Hence why, it’s my song of the week.
