Honestly, The Hics were such a vital part of my early adulthood and that's why the group will forever be ingrained in my memory, especially thanks to the track "Cold Air". So the moment I saw they're back with "Caught In A Lie" I was incredibly giddy with delight.

The skeletal nature of the instrumental beautifully facilitates space for the calming vocals to hover over the mix in quite a serene manner. When the drums finally reveal themselves the track comes to life as we're also welcomed to a more emotionally intense vocal delivery from the two vocalists.

The deeply personal track, self described as “not knowing what you’ve got til it’s gone,” is the lead song off their upcoming, as yet untitled, EP which delves further into this as well as themes of power, trust, fear and change.
