White Lies - Farewell to the Fairground

Rating: 1/5

Another troupe in thrall to the 1980s, White Lies latest single straps (Julian) Cope-y vocals to a Killers bside to create something worse than that sounds. The dynamics are partially uplifting, like finding a quid in an old coat, but the cliche ridden lyrics ('Keep on running - there's no place like home') eventually drive one to violence.

The sound of Absolute Radio.
