Malta: 'White Lie' Released by ScarWritten by Marc Calleja Bayliss
It seems to be somewhat a year in which comebacks are back in fashion especially when it comes to music noting the return of Ira Losco earlier this year with her signature summer track What I'd Give but then again, it seems that artists who have a connection with the Malta Eurovision Song Contest are continuing to develop their own style more and rather being true to themselves and their fans who know that loyalty is key to success when it comes to music. The group that had made a comeback is Scar and the track which they have just released bears the name White Lie comprising of a soft guitar in the backdrop of husky vocals which create a dark yet extremely invigorating ambiance.
The band does not need to be introduced especially having been around in the local music scene for around thirteen years in total now managing successful feats in Italy as much as they have in Malta especially when it comes to the RAI Radio Station where their track Time To Know was being used as a jingle for one of the programmes which was broadcast. Nevertheless, the band grew in experience through time and continuously succeeded in presenting people their best material. Following a number of local appearances in all of the events organized in the country by major companies, in 2005, the band signed a distribution deal with Cargo Records based in Germany in order to sell their albums abroad achieving extremely positive feedback from the foreign media on the records that they were releasing on a consistent basis. It is also important to note that they did what no other band has did and that is take part in the Malta Song for Europe competition with the song As Long As You Know finishing in sixth place behind Olivia Lewis back in 2007. This brand new single entitled White Lie is the eighth single off their sophomore record Breaking Radio Silence and will most likely be the last release preceding brand new material in the coming months. It is currently ranked at position number #7 in the local music charts on 89.7 Bay. Stay tuned to escflashmalta.com for more new releases from local artists.
