Idle Lies – Two’s A Crowd – Single Review

Liverpool’s much fancied Idle Lies introduce bouncing rhythms and soaring guitars on their fourth single ‘Two’s A Crowd’ 

Idle Lies fourth tune is ‘Two’s A Crowd’

Written and recorded in the midst of the pandemic, Idle Lies fourth single ‘Two’s A Crowd‘ is a bouncing indie anthem which belies the miserable backdrop of its creation. 

While the world was just coming to terms with the horror show that was COVID-19 the Idle Lies boys were putting pen to paper on this charming indie bop-a-long

Having debuted on Debuted on Adam Walton’s BBC Introducing show, ‘Two’s A Crowd’ had a pretty sweet start to life. Now it’s no wonder it’s created a whole new buzz around this quintet who seem to be taking success in their collective stride. 

There’s a sound all too familiar about ‘Two’s A Crowd’, then it hits you, if The Last Shadow Puppets and The Coral made sweet passionate love, this would be the resulting offspring.

The soaring guitars create an atmosphere of awesome sound for Ross Neville-Jackson’s vocals to power the beast forwards. The thump of the rhythm section is where those Shadow Puppets comparisons really come through. 

‘Two’s A Crowd’ could be the perfect tune to launch these talented lads. With a Battle of The Bands win at the famous Cavern Club under their belt, over 20,000 streams on Spotify and a working relationship with Pete Maher, whose previously mastered recordings for U2, The Rolling Stones, Jack White and many others. You can understand why they’re causing a stir.

With all that in mind, it’s no wonder they’re heading out on tour ASAP. Catch them in Leeds, Deeside and, of course, Jimmy’s in Liverpool between now and the end of October there’s an interesting few months ahead of Idle Lies.
