White Lies have shared a new music video accompaniment for their recent single, ‘Breakdown Days‘.
The single was originally released on October 13th, follows the previously-released ‘Trouble In America’, which will also be featured in the new collection
White Lies frontman Harry McVeigh has shared: “‘Breakdown Days’ was written in the heart of the first UK lockdown. The song reflects my mood at the time, I felt trapped in many ways not being able to tour or to work. The lyrics are about yearning to reach out about your problems but because you’re living together, in close quarters, it means you can’t totally lose your shit!”
“I always enjoy dressing up quite dark lyrics in a pop song and I love the contrast in this track,” he adds. “I’m sure we all dress ourselves up sometimes!”
