To Lose My Lifeby White Lies
With a retro sound that's pumped up for 2009 consumption, lauded U.K. act White Lies storm American shores with To Lose My Life. The romantically brooding vocals of Harry McVeigh will remind some listeners of Echo & the Bunnymen's Ian McCulloch, but his subject matter is closer to that of Ian Curtis, as these black-clad fellows concentrate on the darker side of life (sample lyric: "Let's grow old together / and die at the same time"). Following in the footsteps of homage-a-'80s bands such as The Bravery and Franz Ferdinand, White Lies deliver mopey music in stadium-sized servings, with plenty of stomping and appropriately sized hooks.
