White Lies have been attracting some discouraging comments of late.
Some people are finding it hard to forget their previous incarnation as Fear of Flying and are struggling to swallow the try-hard efforts made on the bands part to be taken as a serious, grown-up band that wear suits and sing about big important things. They've even employed some proper creative types to give them a sombre video for latest single 'Strangers'.
None of this is doing them any real harm though, gigs are sold out, including the one in Madrid, and fans are still loving their new songs on Ritual, their second album. What do you think? Do you love or hate their pretentious ways?
