Hell, the hummable Cars-esque new wave at the bridge of dour opening track "Death" is just what you needed if you're willing to forget "Just What I Needed". Why not both? White Lies' flirtations with mortality certainly don't help their drab tunes.
But their rote cheerlessness suggests no such emotional intensity. White Lies could even get away with a little heavy-handed somberness if anything of their own other than unintentional humor shone through their reconstituted gloom-rock.
A little less death, a little more love-- of creativity, of life in all its urgent particulars rather than just the hand-me-down cliches that stand in for them-- would go a long way. Take "Unfinished Business", where gothic organs, Interpol-like phrasing, and a jarring James Bond allusion convey little other than that White Lies own a few critically acclaimed records and probably know who Roger Moore is.
In other words, White Lies are boring and stuff. Skip to content Search query All Results. Pitchfork is the most trusted voice in music. White Lies Lyrics provided by SongLyrics.
