Burns – ‘Lies’

Dancefloors will go bananas for this popping dancehall beat

‘Lies’ casts Burns – a man previously known for being a bit like Calvin Harris – as a massive bangermonger in his own right. A catchy, pained vocal is pinned on a popping dancehall beat before a hands-in-the-air chorus with synths. Dancefloors will go bananas. Even Mr Burns would do the Macarena if he heard it.
