White Lies

I went and bought a new CD this weekend, the first in ages. In fact, I bought two, and I have been obsessed with them ever since. They’re “To Lose My Life” and “Ritual” both by the White Lies. Hubby adopted “Ritual” right away, but I’m fine with “To Lose My Life”. I find the music swirling through my head endlessly, even though I only listen to it in the car.


I know this is one of those bands that everyone already knows about, and I’m standing here wondering, “How did I not notice this??” I did the same thing with Nirvana, Green Day, and pretty much every other band I’ve ever liked.

The White Lies are just fantastic. They sound straight out of the 80’s, but not in a copy-cat kind of way. It’s like they time traveled here. The music is like brand new cold wave, beautiful, romantic, and dark, with hints of the Cure, Depeche Mode, and Joy Division. It has permeated my brain. On the Clever Chick Scale this gets a “I will probably listen to my copy on repeat until it disintegrates, then buy a new one and start over again”.
