I wasn’t sure what to expect going into the White Lies concert this past Tuesday. Although I was a big fan of their 2009 debut album, To Lose My Life, the band fell off of my radar until they announced a tour stop at The Majestic.
Initially coming off as somewhat stiff on stage, the band began to blossom within a few songs of their show, leading to a solid vocal performance from front-man Harry McVeigh. The key ingredient to the band’s performance was the rhythm section, including a show-stealing technical performance by Charles Cave on bass. A particular treat for me was that seven of the ten tracks off of To Lose My Life were performed, including show-highlight “Death.” Although the most avid fans of post-punk may have found the show somewhat underwhelming, White Lies provided a darkly dreamy night of music for both the casual music listener and the invested indie-rock fan.
