Default White Lies

With only a single and an EP release to date ('Unfinished Business') and a very good EP at that. I'm liking this band already.
New album due out this month 'To Lose My Life'.

They cited Talking Heads as a major influence...lead singer McVeigh's singing voice has been compared to that of Ian Curtis (not so much him) and Julian Cope (definately him though). wiki

Listen here; MySpace.com - White Lies - UK - www.myspace.com/whitelies

yeah I like what I've listened so far by them, and I'm looking forward to their album release. "Unfinished Business" is a masterpiece imo.

spark. I think it was you who has already mentioned this band in another thread?
They deserve a thread of their own, especially if they do as well as I hope they will, but beware! I've got a nasty habit of jinxing a band to obscurity.
