CURRENT: Real Lies – “Naked Ambition”

Real Lies have quickly built their own distinctive sound, mixing electro-house beats with spoken word vocals to thrilling effects. On “Naked Ambition,” which was first shared in December 2014 during James Blake’s BBC radio show, the band hones in on their sonic trademarks, showing listeners the other side of the same coin. While the brilliant “North Circular” was concerned with nostalgia, there’s a presentness to “Naked Ambition” that their previous track lacked. Regardless of the perspective they take, it is impossible not to get caught up in the hypnotic swirl of the synthesizers as they transport us to places we can only return to in our minds.
