White Lies, formed in 2007, play New Wave in a similar style to Editors or Glasvegas in taking a huge influence from Echo & The Bunnymen and Joy Division. The first single, Unfinished Business, with urgent lyrics, 80s organs and jarring baselines seamlessly turn a minimalistic post-punk approach into a dancepunk anthem reminiscent of Tom Vek or LCD Soundsystem. You can grab the single free from their website (www.whitelies.com) or alternatively an epic Haunts remix of their song 'Death' from right here. White Lies are definitely ones to watch this year, playing sold-out shows with Glasvegas in the next few days and touring the UK until mid-March.
