Song of the Week: “Fairwell to the Fairground” by White Lies

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.

White Lies! I love their music. I’d say that Friends is my favourite album. Harry has some pipes that remind me of Dave Gahan from Depeche Mode.

Farewell to the playground is a fun song. The bass line is infectious, much like it is in most of their songs (Take it out on me is a good example).
