Slang - Sweet Lies

Slang, otherwise known as Dan Dare, dropped his second track today following the excellent Yay (You Alright, Yeah?) in late December.  Like that release, Sweet Lies is a deeply personal, sombre effort, but deftly avoids heading down a melancholic cul-de-sac.

It weaves a story of a difficult relationship while documenting the battle to pull yourself free. Poignant and impactful lyrics "I've been battling my demons, and they've drowned me out again" & "manipulation is one hell of a bait and you ran with it" make the track instantly relatable despite the individual perspective. The chorus, with those beautiful harmonies, provides emotional heft.
