I didn't like sundays

Real Lies - Shirley Road
(From Sinking Suburb EP; 2023)

Highlight of the new EP by Pet Shop Sad Bois IMHO. An oral history of provincial hometown sundaze then-and-now which proves that nobody currently does British kitchen-sink melancholia musik better than Real Lies. Tempted to say Shirley Road is the best Forza RL song of 2023. But I can't because Valentine exists dunnit? RELOAD!!!

Real Lies - Valentine
(From Various - RIFT Two compilation; 2023)

Valentine has never left my rotation this year. Great song, had me checking out their back catalogue after.

One of their best songs full stop.

Still feelin' Dream On for its carefree nineties vibe... and the goth/black metal crusties in the vid.

Possibly their best song. Shout out to Dani Graves & Tasha Maltby.
