White Lies - Farewell to the Fairground
Joe Clark 05/03/2009
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.
