Possibly the coolest band around right now. Possibly.
The 90’s are back in every way imaginable. Fashion trends with crop tops and oversized tee’s. House music, with the current garage revival. Even our politics. (I’ve no idea on that last one). So it only makes sense that a band who are currently making a lot of noise about themselves, sound like a 21st century take on house music meets Blur. But it’s the reminiscence to Manchester’s New Order, which is the reason to be most excited about this group. House and electronic music has never been so strong, and Real Lies are breaking the mould with their fusion of ambient, house melodies, tied together with the swagger of their indie rock persona. Latest track Dab Housing, amplifies the band’s impossibly chilled format, with slow pieced beats matching the laid back vocal presentation. On the A side of the North Circular/Dab Housing 12″, North Circular focuses attention to the rave scenes of mid 90’s Britain, with monotone vocals pieced together with distanced beats, that picture the neon rave scenes of London’s drug fuelled underground scene. So take some speed/acid or smoke a joint and get high and space out to Real Lies.
- What can I expect?
Well thought out, innovative pop music, which lends its ear to 90’s UK dance and reggae scenes.
- When will they release new stuff?
North Circular/Dab Housing is awaiting a 12″ pressing, so eyes peeled.
- Where can I find their music?
Each of their five tracks are accompanied by a music video on the old YouTube.
- Will I like them?
Well you’d be a fool not to, but to be formal: For fans of: New Order/Stay Positive/Breton
