There’s a lot to unpack in Sunset Surrender’s latest record. ‘Lies, Lies, Lies’ is as leftfield and intriguing as it could be. Channelling retro wave, post-punk and everything in between, the track seems to draw from bigger acts like Molchat Doma, creating a sonic panorama that feels mysterious, nostalgic and rather urgent.
Personally, we are into it. ‘Lies, Lies, Lies’ starts in full swing, with steady drum machines and typical new wave guitar tones, then welcoming Sunset Surrender’s deep and dark vocals with charm and elegance. At that point, it’s as if we were riding in the night, on a black Corvette, speeding up through downtown without any care in the world.
Speaking about the influences behind the record, Sunset Surrender explains: “While echoing the nostalgic undertones of synthpop/synthwave, there's an unmistakable influence from iconic bands like Joy Division and The Cure, giving the track a haunting and evocative feel.”
