Single Review: Wide Awake by Hear Lies

Okay so yes, I have another band on the books now… but that’s all good! I was actually approached by Sam Christmas (Best Of Enemies) about doing this post, and as soon as I heard the track, I knew I had to do it! That’s when you know it’s a good song! However, because Hear Lies is a new band to the LifeIsALemon squad, I will be doing a combined song and band review! So let’s get into this!

So Hear Lies are a four-piece rock band, that consists of the following

Orion Powell – Vocals
Glenn Rice – Guitar
James Macdonald – Guitar
Jake Holmes – Drums

FFO – Jimmy Eat World, Deaf Havana, You Me At Six

So let’s talk about this new video for Wide Awake!

Wide Awake was the fourth track on their EP, and they’ve just TODAY released the video for it! And all I’m going to say is, it’s amazing.

The video reminds me of the likes of Stay by Mayday Parade (if you’ve seen that then it’s just as heartbreaking). It’s this heartbreaking mini-film style video, that really just makes you super emotional, however, I can now watch it without crying (after a good 30 times). It’s such a beautiful, moving video and I think it really does do the song justice. I always get sceptical when I review a new band because I worry about if I dislike the content, however, I had nothing to be worried about with Hear Lies. They’re an incredibly talented band that really do deserve some love and affection, all their links will be listed below for you to go and show them some love on!

I absolutely adore the song, and it’s quite a catchy song considering it does wish to break your heart which is just lovely! I don’t want to spoil the video, but it’s very moving, and it’s worth the few minutes that it takes to view it!

Overall, I’m going to go with a 4.5 out of 5 lemons. It’s a solid video, and I look forward to keeping an eye out for anything else they decide to put out in the future. The video does offer a lot, which is nice because I get bored when watching a music video that doesn’t offer me anything!
