7digital What we said: We may be eleven years into the second millennium, but the 80s revival continues apace courtesy of White Lies. Upping the ante after the Editors-esque stylings of their debut, Depeche Mode’s producer, Alan Moulder, has been brought in to add an icy sheen to the epic choruses of Ritual, evoking a time when suits were boxy, microphones were pencil-thin and high drama was always prized above lo-fi. With echo-laden walls of synth swirling around Harry McVeigh’s dead-pan vocals like the smoke machines on vintage TOTP, it’s fair to say subtlety is not Ritual’s strong suit. Fortunately a killer tune, or ten, is.
