The Last Cry, one of the finest bands in the UK goth/wave scene (being around for 30 years now), are back with a new 2-track single, called “Chance / Truth and Lies“. One year after their brilliant “This Future has no Face – life of Lies“ single, they return with another masterpiece!
Let’s have a short preview of the songs featured on the single:
“Chance” is a high class new wave song in which all the typical The Last Cry elements are present. Great melody, beautiful chorus, powerful rhythm section, catchy lyrics and above all the magnificent vocals of Andrew Birch.
In “Truth and Lies” they speed up a little more. According to my opinion, this one is a mega hit. The song features a killer refrain and it’s made for the dance floor. This one is quite reminiscent of the good old days of The Chameleons, without coping them of course. The band is adding its personal touch to the great New Wave sound of the 80’s. Splendid!
Concluding, I can easily say that the guys are back with a great release, which will definitely meet the expectations of their followers as well as all the fans of good wave /goth music. Can’t wait for their first live gig in Athens-Greece on the 8th of May 2015.
