It’s been some time since we premiered Flor And The Sea’s track Dark Minds but the past couple of years haven’t been wasted for the German electro pop group, with their sound developing into a bright ambience in new track A Candid Lie.

The fox masks have been put to one side for this one. The video instead features live performance from the group who look very at ease on stage. It reflects the chilled ambience of the track with keys, synths and vocals layered onto a steady electric drumbeat.
Back in 2018, I compared Flor And The Sea to Radiohead and Alt-J but A Candid Lie feels brighter and poppier than both those bands’ sounds. Perhaps it’s best to leave the comparisons to one side and let Flor And The Sea stand alone.
Check out the video for A Candid Lie below.
