White Lies’ Charles Cave spills on teenage secrets
WHITE LIES say their next album will document the pangs of puberty and rock stardom.
The Bigger Than Us singers, who took Hyde Park’s BST festival by storm last weekend, told Guilty Pleasures they’ve been locked in a room with instruments and blank paper.
Bass guitarist Charles Cave, 29, explained: ‘I’m interested in writing an album about our adolescence. We became adults together, spent most weekends in each other’s company from the age of 14. It’s a terrifying, and yet glorious time for any person but, at that age, I don’t feel I could have articulated myself and my feelings very effectively.
‘I’m not suggesting some kind of memoir album. But I am wanting to write from the point of view of the person we all were in those teenage years.’
Four albums in and fans are still hooked. ‘We have one who’s nine shows away from seeing White Lies 100 times,’ said Charles.
