A standout track called “i just wanna lie” from Little Star’s demo collection love and kisses gets the full treatment on their recent self-titled album. “I Just Wanna Lie” (now with capital letters) maintains its standout status with crisp production that feels like it fills every space of your ear with infectious falsetto vocals. With its driving drum beat, chorus laden guitars, and lyrical topics ranging from suburban roads to crows picking out the eyes of dead squirrels, this song is the ultimate beach road trip music for goths. Grab your black swim trunks, but maybe avoid Beaverton—I hear there’s traffic.
