They may not have been able to make it here but we have the next best thing: an online-exclusive chat with White Lies!
With their new album featuring what looks like the grown-up version of the twins from The Shining on its cover, you immediately get the image of a murkier, brooding White Lies. That may be the case for their newest offering, The Ritual , but these Ealing new wave merchants couldn’t be enjoying life more these days. Ambitions of synth-based melancholia aside, Harry, Charles and Jack are riding a tsunami hype wave that’s taken them on tour with the likes of Muse and all over Glastonbury, and Coachella. We catch up with Jack to see how they’re taking it all in.
