White Lies Premiere New Single "Breakdown Days"

London indie/post punk trio White Lies have premiered their new single “Breakdown Days“.

White Lies frontman Harry McVeigh has shared:

“‘Breakdown Days’ was written in the heart of the first UK lockdown. The song reflects my mood at the time, I felt trapped in many ways not being able to tour or to work. The lyrics are about yearning to reach out about your problems but because you’re living together, in close quarters, it means you can’t totally lose your shit! I always enjoy dressing up quite dark lyrics in a pop song and I love the contrast in this track. I’m sure we all dress ourselves up sometimes!”

The song is taken from the bonus edition of ‘As I Try Not To Fall Apart‘, featuring four previously unreleased songs recorded during the album sessions, out digitally on 21st October via [PIAS] . Get it here.
