Hotly tipped London trio (or quartet, when performing live) White Lies recently entered the famed BBC Maida Vale Studio for a live BBC Radio 1 session, complete with banter avec Zane "The Human Microphone" Lowe.
Having completed their NME New Noise Tour with Crystal Castles, Friendly Fires and Team Waterpolo, they now head into festival season. As their previous incarnation Fear Of Flying never played any particularly big festivals (to my knowledge), it's quite amazing that within the first year of White Lies, they will be playing at the likes of Lollapalooza and Fuji Rock Festival. But I guess listening to the music reverses that thought, with their eighties influenced MASSIVE sound almost geared towards headlining arenas.
To be honest, this post is more a vehicle for a recent interview I did with Jack from White Lies, discussing their hype and a possible backlash, their debut record and signing to a major label. Read the interview [here] for all the goss.
WHITE LIES - UNFINISHED BUSINESS (BBC RADIO 1 SESSION)

White Lies recently released their debut release, 'Unfinished Business' on 7". If you're lucky, you might find one. But anyway, you can pick up a digital copy of the title track for free [here].
