Klue drops a multi-instrumental hit with ‘No Lie’
Klue’s new single is a fun yet meaningful track, signalling what’s to come from his music in 2019. The producer, singer, multi-instrumentalist and global nomad wants his first song of the year to showcase a unique and varied sound while also conveying an emotional message.
Klue says “Sometimes the words you use mean something totally different to the person hearing them, even though you’re speaking the same language. Past experiences colour the way we hear things, and sometimes that leads to some really different interpretations and misunderstandings.”
So despite the smooth and happy sound, as well as the talented flute and saxophone solos featured, ‘No Lie’ presents a deeper meaning about speaking but not truly being heard. Klue explains that he wrote the track in a time of conflict with someone deeply important to him, reflecting the feelings of miscommunication and frustration in his lyrics.
‘No Lie’ follows the success of Klue’s previous #1 single ‘Lifted’ which hit the top spot on the iTunes World Music chart, not to mention his debut EP ‘Daybreak’ which boasts over a million streams on Spotify. He has also had a busy year supporting the likes of Dub FX and Thievery Corporation on tour, while also playing festivals like Subsonic, Rainbow Serpent and Bohemian Beatfreaks. And as if he’s not busy enough he also spends his time remixing hits along the lines of PNAU’s 4 x platinum, ARIA Award-winning anthem ‘Chameleon’.
