Producer and singer-songwriter, Jordan Lehning, is back with a new tune from his forthcoming cinematic release,Little Idols.
"Little Lie" is an acoustic folk number from the multi-instrumentalist dealing the "emotions of guilt and passion" felt after the beginning of an affair. It's a quiet and reflective tune that fits in with the overall narrative of Little Idols, about a married woman engaging in an affair with a single man.
"Little Lie" reminds me of Damien Rice, with Lehning's rich vocals full of textured emotion. Speaking on the track Lehning had this to say;
We're in the character's apartment for most of the song and they're laying there quietly in bed. Towards the end her naked back is turned towards him and she's quietly crying. She knows she's in love with him. I recorded the guitar and vocal of this song alone and I feel like you can hear that in the recording. It's such a private and intimate song. Austin Hoke, who plays cello on it, also plays saw. I love the saw – it has an anxious beauty which worked perfectly for the setting.
Little Idols is set for release August 7.
