As their debut album ‘Real Life’ approaches release, London trio Real Lies have unveiled a new video for ‘Blackmarket Blues’, alongside dates for a support run alongside current DIY cover stars Foals.
The ‘Blackmarket Blues’ video is all shady, London-centric visuals, and stars frontman Kev Kharas as he takes what appears to be a very stressful phone-call late at night. To be honest though, the real lie is that literally anyone even uses phone boxes anymore. Come on lads, you’re not fooling us.
