While not my favorite White Lies song, Bigger Than Us (with its strange music video) is quickly growing on me. Their second album is due out in January and I couldn’t help writing about them.
All of their songs have a sound of grandeur - as if the band just belongs in a stadium. I remember reading somewhere this specific song was like “an anthem of the modern age.” And I think that’s true.
The music video is entertaining. A small budget remake (or parody) of the last scenes in ET. But the lovable alien has been replaced with a chocolate bar (in that the bar is the most desirable object to real kids). It is at times hilarious but also very dark. I’ve had it on replay all morning.
