Daily Dose Pick: White Lies


Gloom-rock titans White Lies sidestep the Joy Division comparisons on their sophomore album, embracing electronic elements and channeling Depeche Mode via Interpol.

While the band’s dark edge remains, Ritual finds it moving into dancier territory, but remaining equally, icily epic. Meanwhile, less talk of death and more mention of love offers hints of optimism, while a supplemental short film (see below) co-written by bassist Charles Cave adds to the overall wide-screen effect.
