Former Bluetones front man Mark Morriss is gearing up to release a brand new solo album, through Acid Jazz, on Feb 24th. Titled A Flash of Darkness, the record’s first single has been revealed as This Is The Lie (And That’s The Truth); a vide for which has just emerged.
This Is The Lie is a quiet, reflective tale of self-delusion in which subtle, spiraling, electronics circle a jaunty sea shanty. Some fine percussive quirks punctuate the ode which, at less than two and a half minutes, doesn’t outstay its welcome.
Mark sums up the track is his own succinct style; “What is the purpose of this song..? Perhaps it is to make loneliness feel like Christmas.” You can view the video here:
