Girlpool have followed their beautiful recent single 'Faultline' with 'Love Lie Lullaby' and news of a new album called Forgiveness. Eerie and insidious, the lead single shows a darker sound to the forthcoming album.

While 'Faultline' was vocalised by Harmony Trividad, 'Love Lie Lullaby' shows off Avery Tucker's voice to great effect: his whispered register melds perfectly with the shimmering electronics of the soundscape.

“‘Lie Love Lullaby’ is a song about a time where I felt that my innocence affected my ability to choose a person who was good for me," Tucker said. 

“In the past, it's been painful to choose somebody that didn’t believe in me, and I think the most painful part was that I allowed myself to pick a person that didn’t recognize my entirety. I wrote this song wondering, did I recognize it myself? If I had the wherewithal to tolerate their minimizing perspective?”
