White LiesLondon fine trio White Lies – Harry McVeigh, Charles Cave, Jack Brown – share this splendid David Pablos-directed video, for their equally stunning track ‘Take it Out on Me’ (released on August 26th), lifted from upcoming album ‘Friends’ out October 7th. via BMG. The self-produced album was recorded in Bryan Ferry’s private studio in London’s Olympia.

The ‘The Chosen Ones’ director explains….“I had wanted to make a music video for quite a long time. I told everyone I knew in Mexico, how much I was looking for this opportunity,but nothing happened… And suddenly, out of nowhere, I got a message from White Lies, inviting me to collaborate with them! How exciting this was! The music video for “Take It Out On Me” is a reinterpretation of traditional stories of saints, in modern day Tijuana, mixed with elements from the film “Theorem” by Pier Paolo Pasolini. A little bit of dark humor and that’s the final result!”

Harry McVeigh who acts in the video says: “I spent four days in Mexico in Tijuana shooting the video with director David Pablos and his cast and crew; it was inspiring to work with such talented actors and with such a visionary and hard-working director. Seeing Tijuana from the perspective of the local people from all backgrounds and eating, drinking and exploring the vibrant and transient streets is an experience I’ll never forget. This video is a perfect love letter to Tijuana and it’s people”.White Lies1“Right up until we recorded the song it was called 89-1-3” says Charles Cave “It was inspired by a lunatic on Instagram who kept commenting on a friend’s photos in pseudo Biblical verse. From his profile I discovered he lived in a remote cabin with a rough-looking dog. He posted weird videos in which he quoted random numbers. As a challenge, I turned them in to a song. The only problem was that it went so well everyone said it should be the first single, so I relented and gave the chorus real lyrics.”
