I first heard UK act White Lies’ indie rock single “Death” in the excellent Iranian vampire film “A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night.” If you’ve seen the film, you know the scene. It’s stuck with me ever since.
So when I heard it today at work, I had to remind everyone of “Death’s” greatness. It succeeds as both hypnotic rock and catchy pop. Here it is …
“Death” from the 2099 album “To Lose My Life …”
And after digging around in my archives, I found this footage of White Lies’ performing “Death” at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles last year on 02.15.17.
