MP3: The Smiling Lies – “Space Elevator”

MP3: The Smiling Lies – Space Elevator

The Smiling Lies are a young group from York, PA that describe themselves as a mixture of “the Arctic Monkeys, Bombay Bicycle Club, Graham Coxon, and a little crack cocaine.” The high-energy vocal drawl and fast-moving punk-rock schematics collide beautifully to make the description sensible. It provides very nice results, especially for a group that looks barely out of high school.
