Home > New music > Little Lies: Breaking Barriers and Boundaries with ‘Roadblocks’

In a symphony of sonic rebellion, the band Little Lies unshackles their creative spirits, forging a musical manifesto that transcends the confines of convention. Their latest track, “Roadblocks,” emerges as an auditory emancipation, an anthem for those yearning to break free and seize life’s uncharted realms with an unapologetic fervor.

As they dive headlong into the kaleidoscope of sound, “Roadblocks” marries the ethereal echoes of space-rock luminaries like Bowie and Fleetwood Mac with the pulsating disco rhythms of the pioneering maestros, Giorgio Moroder and Chic. This concoction, enshrouded with a beguiling Twin Peaks mystique, transforms “Roadblocks” into a veritable chameleon of music—a track equally at home igniting dance floors as it is serenading nocturnal city drives.

Little Lies, a passion-fueled collaboration between the seasoned virtuosos Mikael Nordgren and Anna Maria Espinosa, charts a boundless voyage across the sonic spectrum. Their compositions oscillate freely, channeling a plethora of emotions through heartfelt lyrics and irresistibly infectious melodies. But to merely label them as “genre-benders” would be an understatement, for they are musical chameleons, shape-shifting through pop, rock, indie, and even the uncharted territories of electronica and disco.
