REAL LIES - Band Of The Month October 2013

This month's BOTM on Kool Rock Radio is London bedroom pop trio REAL LIES.

Revealed back in July without further information, this exciting new band caught our attention with their smashing single "Deeper". Sitting somewhere between old rave records and modern electronic pop acts, Real Lies present a sound that would do equally as well in a club as it would on stage at a large festival.

According to the press, Real Lies' music expresses late-night euphoria at the same time as it embraces the horrors of the following afternoon, twinning street bravado with bedroom vulnerability, loss with longing. It is music about burying yourself in an avalanche of words and warm bodies in an endless search for the right ones. We couldn't agree more. 

'World Peace / Deeper' is the first of three double A-sides from the band, and the first ever 12" pressing from London label Sweet Exile. It will be out on November 4.

Both tracks are brilliant and have all the hallmarks of an early 90s anthem, fans of New Order, Pet Shop Boys, Perfume, Flowered Up and Happy Mondays are sure to find plenty pleasurable about these tracks.
