Photos: White Lies at Academy, Sheffield Ethan Weatherby February 25, 2017 With their 4th album Friends, White Lies have made it clear that subtlety isn’t their strong suit. Everything they bring to the table is pumped up, bold components to slot into their monolithic synth belters. Academy venues are a hard sell, built round a core of functionality rather than atmosphere, but the London trio made light work of the cavernous Sheffield venue. Check out our photos from the night.
