about

Australian Indie Quartet Pirra released their third single via BLK&WHT 'Limousine Lies', in which we see them team up with ARIA award winning producer Konstantin Kersting (Tones & I 'Dance Monkey') has so far hit the jackpot with the bands' first feature on NME, Spotify playlist additions on Indie Dancefloor & Serotonin, Triple J spot play on 'Home and Hosted' and Unearthed' Playlist Rotation. 'Limousine Lies' is described as a "fruity concoction that goes down smooth" from Dave Ruby Howe and a "blend effortless magic of colour and slinky, upbeat sounds. Music that makes you want to get up and boogie!" from Claire Mooney, now takes on one of 2020's standout remixes from electronica icons Lindstrøm & Prins Thomas.

Norwegian producer Lindstrøm, whose material is universally loved worldwide; with spins from Black Madonna to Radio Slave whilst recent remixes span from Flume and Blossoms to Franz Ferdinand and LCD Soundsystem, Lindstrøm has maintained a cult-like status for more than 20 years and remains a perennial figure in the new-wave of electronica music.

Joined by Norwegian counterpart Prins Thomas in which they have collaborated together since 2003, Thomas is described by many as the architect of 'space disco', which has seen an array of eclectic and belt-driven remixes of Arthur Baker and Shep Pettibone via Thomas' own record label Full Pupp - containing a roster of releases that Thomas will cite inspirations from even the likes of Miles Davis and Phuture.

Once again, Lindstrøm & Prins Thomas team up to create what will be one of the year's finest dance cuts, decorated with exultant synth leads reminiscent of 80's New-Wave music, a sonic-like rhythmic base and an almost psychedelic vibe that will keep you on your toes throughout the track. A striking balance between Lindstrøm's progressive influences and Prins Thomas' musical spontaneity.

lyrics

Video Call from wonderland
Betting it all on blind hand
If you want it put it all on the table
If you lose it fair enough, burn it up, gone

We could smoke weed sitting in a limousine
Big entourage waiting on the dream team
Be the next big thing on the small screen
Made it there finally

But it’s all lies
And you are not who you say you are
Is there nothing in this
Like all the lies that we’ve heard before

But it’s all lies
And you are not who you say you are
It doesn’t make a difference
Whether your lies were meant to hurt

We keep stumbling ‘round
Riding a wave that’s closing out
Charmed in a daze we never frown
Birds on a wire, keep quiet

If you want it put it all on the table
If you lose it fair enough, burn it up, gone

We could smoke weed sitting in a limousine
Big entourage waiting on the dream team
Be the next big thing on the small screen
Made it there finally

But it’s all lies
And you are not who you say you are
Is there nothing in this
Like all the lies that we’ve heard before

But it’s all lies
And you are not who you say you are
It doesn’t make a difference
Whether your lies were meant to hurt
