White Lies: here to have funJoe Cook

Over the course of a pulsating 90 minutes, White Lies’ show at the Cambridge Junction did not let up for energy. From the moment the band walked on the stage it was obvious that they were there to have fun.

The band opened with ‘Time to Give’ from their latest album Five, and there was enough new material to keep things exciting throughout the evening. But being ten years since their debut album, To Lose My Life…, it was comforting to hear a range of songs from their discography. Classics such as ‘Hold Back Your Love’ slotted alongside the new songs remarkably well.

This being the fifth time I have ventured to the Junction this year, the venue constantly amazes me in its strength and variety. From the pulsing house of Turf to the far-out sounds of psych-pop octet Superorganism, Cambridge has a genuinely brilliant little venue in the Junction that we should continue to support.

White Lies certainly made the best use of the room. In such an intimate venue as the Junction it was nice to see that the band had not stinted on the light show. The setup was absolutely stunning, helping to add even more energy to an already electric performance.

It was indeed a feel-good night, where any fan, whether they have kept up with them since the beginning or not, would have left feeling incredibly satisfied. White Lies are halfway through an extensive world tour promoting their new record - if you want certainty of a good night out, go see a great band at the top of their game.
