Dance Little Liar’ is easily the most underrated song to ever spill from Turner’s lips.
It’s dark, it’s delicious. It’s poetry set to the sinking of the Titanic, from the opening twang of the guitar to the frenetic explosion of drums during the solo. Alex’s breaths between syllables perfectly balances the chilling melody; he begins with hearsay and unravels his thoughts like a Chinese whisper. The guitars play catchup, the bass shadows the eerie mood and the organs mourn in the background: it’s both funereal and sugary, and there’s not a note or a letter of any of the lyrics that I’d change. It’s pure perfection.
