“Stoner darkness that is truly captivating . . . a song to listen to before voting!” – Rock Fuego
Following the release of their debut single Sombre Circus ft. Nell Bryden, which received critical acclaim from journalists & DJs around the globe, West London music collective The Roadside Bandits Project now come with My Own Lies ft. Gang of Four vocalist John Sterry & alongside this single, they release their eponymously named album The Roadside Bandits Project.
A co-write between project main-man Santi Arribas & John Sterry, My Own Lies features Arribas on guitars, bass & programming while drums are from Jon Finnigan (Gang of Four, Ian Gillan, Julian Perretta) & recorded at London’s Beauchamp Studios (the home of recently passed & good friend of Arribas, Gang of Four’s Andy Gill). Jamiroquai keyboard player Matt Johnson provides electric piano & synths, with mixing completed at Arribas’ studio The Mixing Factory deep in the heart of West London’s Ladbroke Grove.
Lyrically Arribas says of the track “My Own Lies is told from the perspective of a politician whose lack of understanding of key issues makes him lie compulsively to the public, in order to achieve any objective & always end on a manufactured positive note. Reflecting on the current political climate & how policy making is made to be understood, it’s like the running of a nation is now done via uplifting presentations”.
