Real Lies — Real Life (October 16th, 2015)

               Real Lies — Real Life (October 16th, 2015)
♣  Jedním z hlavních problémů, kterým čelí nové kapely, jsou nekonečné seznamy srovnávacích umělců, kteří přišli před nimi. Real Lies se ničím neliší, ale tyto údajné podobnosti omráčili kapelu, která je kontextuálně mnohem více konformní ve vyhodnocování jejich vlastní hudební linie. Proč jsem si ji tedy připustil k tělu? Je to paradoxně kvůli videu v telefonní budce, kde text je namluven do pevného sluchátka. Jednoduchý a účinný nápad. Co osloví, nelze nikdy předem přesně odhadnout. Je to album dvou tváří — reflexní vs. hlučné — a otvírák “Blackmarket Blues” elegantně kombinuje obě. Je to v duchu pozdního nočního zvuku na okraji města, divoce v současnosti, filtrovaného v baggy, happy house a rave. Kapela podporuje Foals na jejich turné. Mimochodem, to interview uvnitř mého reportu  je mimořádně inspirativní i pro muzikanty.

Ξ?Ξ   Real Lies’ music expresses late–night euphoria at the same time as it embraces the horrors of the following afternoon, twinning street bravado with bedroom vulnerability, loss with longing. It is music about burying yourself in an avalanche of words and warm bodies in an endless search for the right ones. Quickly heralded as a brave new voice in electronic pop, North London based Real Lies are embodying what it is to be young, locked in and yet somehow adrift in Britain today. Artwork was designed by young British magazine LAW.Review
Ξ?Ξ   North London lads revive the ravey hedonism of The Streets and Happy Mondays on a reflective and rowdy debut
Ξ?Ξ   Proudly based in north London, twenty–somethings Real Lies get their kicks as much from taking a stand against creeping urban gentrification as they do partying through from Friday until Monday.
Ξ?Ξ   Frontman Kev Kharas, singer/producer Tom Watson and loops/samples man Pat King plug into the urban ennui and drifting modern malaise The Streets did on 2002 debut ‘Original Pirate Material’. ‘Real Life’ is the late night sound of the fringes of the city as filtered through baggy, happy house and rave.
Ξ?Ξ   It’s an album of two halves — reflective and rowdy — and opener ‘Blackmarket Blues’ neatly combines the two. ‘North Circular’ is like a chill–out room take on John Betjeman’s 1973 study of suburbia Metroland, and easily passes the Burial and xx ambient electronica nightbus test. On the boisterous flip side are the exhilarating, Happy Mondays–style party banger ‘One Club Town’ and the piano house perfection of ‘World Peace’.
Ξ?Ξ   ‘Seven Sisters’ hits a Pet Shop Boys pop sweet spot, while the spiralling ‘Dab Housing’ references Orbital, Studio One reggae and Oasis in four minutes of hazy Hacidena–worthy rapture. It might sound like Real Lies are living in the past, but ‘Real Life’ is fiercely in the present. Ξ?Ξ   http://www.nme.com/ © Cold and diffident … Real Lies. Photograph: Bradley Barnes

♣   Late nights, empty streets, dog–eared consumerism — this is the world of Real Lies. The London trio prowl around the unfashionable edges of metropolitan existence in a manner so casual it comes across as studious. “The men who drink in A–road pubs / And rave flyers / All lost in the same sea,” runs a line in North Circular. ♣   They have created a 21st–century soundtrack by voraciously repackaging 1990s pop: from Electronic to the Beloved and even William Orbit’s Bassomatic, Real Life is a compendium of 90s references, an avowed musical homage. This approach can sometimes feel a bit cold and diffident, and the monotone vocals also undercut the mood. But for all the talk of raves, drugs and A–road pubs, the recurrent theme is love, and monogamous love at that. Lovers’ Lane describes it in impressionistic detail, while the chorus of World Peace (“The only thing I’ve ever known, the sweetest thing I’ve ever known”) shows a vulnerability that belies all the ennui elsewhere.
