White Lies - Hold Back Your Love (Official Video)

Following on from their recent video to Morning In LA, White Lies return with an official accompanying clip to their latest single, Hold Back Your Love. Probably my favourite from their fourth studio album, Friends, the single features a broad selection of humans in their most vulnerable state - half naked in bed. Often framed as a safe place of wonder, the video to me displays a subtle darkness through the stark element of separation. "I'm struggling to remember how this song came about, which is always a positive feeling as it suggests the process was a totally pleasurable and inspirational one, but I know that it was written quickly and the melodies seemed to do that dreamy thing of writing themselves" explains Charles Cave. "I think we were in a 'Tango In The Night' state of pop when this song came about, and you can definitely hear that in the middle section. But equally, (and this band has been a huge influence since we were fifteen) there's a solid Talking Heads stomp that, dare I say it, you can almost dance to!". Take a watch below.
