Watch: White Lies Premiere New Single/Video "I Don't Want To Go To Mars"

London indie/post punk trio White Lies have premiered the video for their new single "I Don't Want To Go To Mars".

The song is taken from their forthcoming sixth studio album 'As I Try Not To Fall Apart', which will be out on 18th February 2022 through [PIAS]. Pre-order your copy here.

Speaking about it, Charles Cave says: “I Don’t Want To Go To Mars has all the distorted bombast of White Lies best anthems neatly packed into a short story. The song follows a character seemingly being herded off Earth to live out a sterile and mundane existence on a newly colonised Mars. Fundamentally the song questions the speed at which we are developing the world(s) we inhabit, and what cost it takes on our wellbeing.”

Songwriter Jack Morgan explains: "Plastic Flowers is a tale of teenage love, loss and loathing. It's also a metaphor for the fakery of an ex-lover. It's always interesting to see how we see people in a different light once we remove our rose-tinted spectacles".

New Entry: Pale Blue Eyes Unveil New Single "TV Flicker"

Totnes, UK indie pop/indie rock band Pale Blue Eyes have unveiled their new single "TV Flicker".

The song is out today (November 30) through Full Time Hobby. Get it here.

Speaking about it, drummer Lucy Board says: “It does feel full of ghostly traces – feelings and recollections from the time of a sudden family bereavement, a snapshot into an anxiety-fuelled head-space and not being able to switch off your thoughts, blankly staring at the TV.”

Recorded at their own studio Penquit Mill, south of Dartmoor, the song is light on the surface, but carries a dark resonance underneath.

Singer-guitarist Matt Board explains... "At the time of my dad’s death I’d sometimes fall asleep in front of a flickering TV. It was calming to drift off to sound or background dialogue and it helped me sleep. The music and lyrics in 'TV Flicker' also maybe conjure ambiguous images of 1970s Cold War décor – post-apocalyptic hideouts, a hatch leading into a lost nuclear bunker."
