Embrace These White LiesMay 18th, 2011
At the young age of 15, Charles Cave, Jack Lawrence-Brown and Harry McVeigh began playing music together under the name Fear of Flying. But they eventually wanted to go with a darker sound, so they abandoned their original moniker and took on the name White Lies in 2007. Their debut album, To Lose My Life…, shot up to No. 1 on the UK albums chart, and later that year, Mojo named them Breakthrough Artist of 2009. The band was blowing up and not resting on any early success. The trio’s second disc, Ritual, came out this past winter. You can check out three songs off the album below; White Lies, above, doing “To Lose My Life” for Fearless Music; and see the band—and School of Seven Bells and Sun Airway—play Terminal 5 tomorrow night.
