About White Lies

A dark-edged British trio, White Lies take sonic cues from the likes of Joy Division, the Teardrop Explodes, and Echo & the Bunnymen. Indeed, the three musicians, who first emerged in 2008, are so committed to the U.K.'s post-punk scene that they signed with Fiction Records, a Polydor imprint best known for its '80s releases by the Cure and the Associates. Heralded by the single "Death," the band's 2009 debut To Lose My Life... hit number one in the U.K. They again reached the U.K. Top Ten with 2011's Ritual and 2013's Big TV. While driving post-punk remains White Lies' core sound, they have matured and albums like 2016's Friends, 2019's Five, and 2022's As I Try Not to Fall Apart showcase their nuanced and hooky sophistication.
