Drawing comparisons to Joy Division and Interpol, hotly tipped newcomers White Lies present their highly anticipated album, To Lose My Life. Flirting with death from the off, this doom-laden debut is set to release these boys from the crypt and send them straight to the top of the charts.

Formerly delivering catchy electro nuggets under the pseudonym Fear Of Flying, White Lies changed their name and put their indie dance style to rest in late 2007 to concentrate on darker material. Taking inspiration from '80s visionaries such as Tears For Fears and Echo & The Bunnymen, White Lies' have developed a sound that cunningly combines organic punk elements with reverberating synths and tender yet morose lyricism. Now, as they release their debut album, the angst-driven band confirm that their change of tact was a dead clever move. Opening with last year's erupting indie anthem, 'Death', To Lose My Life takes the gloomy subject matter of mortality and runs with it until the dying end. Mixing pounding basslines with reverb-drenched riffs and the escalating baritone vocals of Harry McVeigh, the album delivers expansive and unashamedly alternative tunes that are built to fill stadiums. As they layer tone and tension on every track, White Lies create a striking and attention-grabbing atmosphere with astute patience. Constructing crisp percussion over heroic guitar chords, gradually and effectively, the anthems of the sinister, 'Unfinished Business', and rousing, 'E.S.T.', prowl and swell before catapulting colossal choruses and crashing crescendos.

Audacious in their approach, White Lies have successfully taken their macabre lyrics and backed them with epic climaxes that flourish within shining synths and clever chords. Generating a bright sense of hope, despite its dark subject matter, To Lose My Life is a melodic musical euphoria that should see its creators reach the same level of notoriety as their heroic post-punk predecessors.
