A dark-edged trio hailing from London, White Lies take sonic cues from the likes of Joy Division, The Teardrop Explodes, and Echo & the Bunnymen. Indeed, the three musicians are so committed to the U.K.’s post-punk scene that they signed with Fiction Records, a Polydor imprint best known for its ’80s releases by The Cure and The Associates.

After changing their name from Fear of Flying in 2006, the trio changed musical directions, adapted a more somber group persona, and began creating doomy material like the funereal murder ballad ‘Unfinished Business’ and the self-explanatory ‘Death’.

The latest album Friends was released after a three-year wait, continuing with their crisp, vibrant synth pop and gnarly post-punk sound The band self-produced the album, which was recorded at Bryan Ferry‘s private studio in Kensington, West London. White Lies enlisted the help of an expert team including Grammy Award-winning engineer James Brown (Foo Fighters, Arctic Monkeys), David Wrench (Caribou, FKA Twigs) on mixing duties and long-term collaborator Ed Buller who contributed additional production.
