Taken from his, Call And Response EP, West Londoner Westerman, shares with us all how he’s learning to Lie.
Finely crafted lyricism and intriguing productions are just some of Westerman’s greatest strengths when it comes to creating his work, Lie being no exception. The casual expression of disdain towards the notion of sex from one jaded lover is carried over sublimely throughout Lie, with Westerman providing a positive correlation between time and energy expelled across the track. Beginning simply with piano keys and guitar that resemble Alt-J, Westerman quickly penetrates Lie with his seasonable talent, moving Lie from the gentle nods of indie folk, towards the more jubilant energy of Peter Bjorn and John for instance. Lie’s intensity as synths, choirs and orchestral interventions arise as time passes, stays as calm and cool as it’s beginning, instead providing energy that neither needs motivation nor applause, simply basking in the truly, well-crafted construction from the singer-songwriter.
