Album of the week: White Lies “Ritual”


2 years ago the White Lies from Ealing, London, released their fantastic debut album “To Lose My Life”, a fresh melodic pop album, which straight stormed the british charts at  number 1. Now the trio is back with their second album “Ritual”.

For the second album the band got producer Alan Moulder on board, who did produce Depeche Mode, Smashing Pumpkins and Nine Inch Nails amongst others. Singer Harry McVeigh (great baritone), Charles Cave (bass) and Jack Lawrence-Brown (drums) recorded 10 wonderful rock and pop songs. All great, epic melodies, lots of emotions like in “Strangers”, “Bigger Than Us” (the first single), “Holy Ghost”, “The Power & The Glory” and “Bad Love”, singing about love, religion and life. The 22 year old friends provide evidence with this new album, that they are not a flash in the pan, they have the talent to stay in the music world for years. If you like the Editors, Interpol or Joy Division, have a listen to this great album.

The album is out this week in the UK, Germany and other European countries will release it on January, 28. The band will be on tour in the UK and Europe, starting in February.
