Real Lies – North Circular

We’ve been meaning to write about Real Lies for a while and, given their blanket radio coverage these past few days, why not now eh?

New single ‘North Circular’ has pushed the Marathon Artists three-piece way out in front of the chasing pack. Inevitable comparisons with The Streets are justified given their dainty dancing down the line between lyrical pop and electronica but there’s more to them than being an homage to boss man Mike Skinner . We think there’s something for the Pet Shop Boys fan (*cough* us *cough*) in there too.

Essentially, more please.

They’ve also shown impeccable taste by having Pariah (one half of Karenn) remix their earlier release, ‘World Peace’. Again, worth a listen:

They’re playing a free gig next Thursday with Oscillate Wildly and others. Don’t come though, we want to get in no hassles.
