Welcome to the "Daily Song Drop": theguysfrom.com's song of the day feature where our resident indie music writer and former DJ Shaun Cordingley features a song every weekday that he feels you need to hear.
Little White Lies - BATTS
Melbourne based singer-songwriter Tanya Batt AKA BATTS' most recent single "Little White Lies" is the absolutely prefect indie folk track for the a cold, sleeting day like it is here today.
Check it out below:
There's a real David Lynch vibe running through "Little White Lies"; the song has an almost unreal feel to it, which is considerably more impressive considering how beautifully simple the track is. Relying largely on BATTS' vocals (which are lovely, yet feel a bit melancholy) and a methodically building guitar and drum combination (occasionally offset by little hints of what could be the soundtrack of an old fashioned radio drama about space), "Little White Lies" is just the right kind of indie folk track for the autumn, and the cool, sweater and tea days that are coming.
Or, if you live around me, are already here.
If you enjoy "Little White Lies", check out "For Now", or take a wander into some of her electronic-trip hop work with FIcci, but really, as far as I can hear, you can pretty much grab anything that BATTS is putting out, and enjoy the hell out it.
The September 2017 Apple Music Playlist and September 2017 Spotify Playlist are ready! As is tradition, the lists are missing a track ("To Do" (Be Yourself) by LEMZI), but I suppose that's just something that you're going to be used to be now considering the way this always seems to go.
If you're looking for any of our past playlists, be sure to check out a Friday DSD feature, or serach for TGF on either Apple Music or Spotify!
See you tomorrow for our next Daily Song Drop!
