British indie rockers White Lies appeared on David Letterman’s show last night (May 16) to perform a version of “Bigger Than Us” from the recently released Ritual. There’s a clear industrial influence at work here, albeit one that leans hard on the poppier side of that genre, as well as the already noted homage to bands that tore notes from the Joy Division songbook in the last decade (Interpol, Editors, etc.). It’s certainly a confident sound, and one that’s more likely to find favor on this side of the Atlantic than their more foppish peers in the Brit rock indie scene.
