24 year old twins Catherine and Lizzy, best known as Ward Thomas, release the video for their infectious new single ‘Lie Like Me’. The track is the first to be taken from their eagerly anticipated new album ‘Restless Minds’ October 5th on WTW Music/Sony Music. Watch the video here.
‘Lie Like Me’ is a biting indictment of lives faked online, accompanied by a deceptively sweet, flirtatiously upbeat musical track. The video emulates the song’s attack on “fake reality” on and offline, with the video highlighting contrasting versions of the girls from natural simplicity to styled swagger and the overhanging question of what is “real” and what is “fake”.
Lyrically the twins have tackled issues close to their hearts, including pertinent observations on social media, the women’s movement, what ‘the truth’ means in 2018 and mental health. “We couldn’t help but address social media and the subconscious competition it creates,” says Lizzy. “There’s a fake reality that everyone our age is falling for right now. Scroll down, see my page, look at my perfect life!”
Restless Minds is the follow up to their 2016 No.1 charting major label debut ‘Cartwheels’ and firmly establishes Ward Thomas as leading exponents of new wave country tinged pop. ‘Restless Minds’ is available to pre-order now.
