White Lies are a superb Post Punk band from Ealing, London. The band centres around drummer Jack Lawrence-Brown, guitarist Harry McVeigh who is responsible for lead vocals and backing vocals from Charles Cave also on bass.
The trio formed the band as teens and originally worked under the title Fear Of Flying. Achieving quite some success, they released two double a-side singles Routemaster/Round Three and Three’s A Crowd/Forget-Me-Nots through independent label Young And Lost Club. They also played support slots for the likes of Laura Marling, Jamie T and The Maccabees.
However, Cave began to feel they had outgrown their previous work and wanted to push in a new, darker, direction. As the name was no longer fit for purpose they adopted a new moniker and in 2007 made a declaration on Myspace: “Fear of Flying is DEAD ... White Lies is alive!
After gigging heavily they were invited to perform on top BBC music telly program Later… With Jools Holland. The prominent display of their talent succeeded in widening their audience just before they entered the studio to record their debut album.
To Lose My Life Or Lose My Love (commonly shortened to just To Lose My Life…) was released in January of 2009 and earned White Lies a place on the ShockWaves NME Awards Tour.
They have subsequently released the records Ritual in 2011 and Big TV during 2013.
