Mister Lies – “Cleam”

on April 20, 2012


At only 19, Chicago’s Nick Zanca, also known as Mister Lies, crafts the kind of understated, minimalistic beats that crawl under your skin and wiggle deep into your brain.

“Cleam,” a highlight from Mister Lies’ self-released Higher Thoughts EP, centers around an eerie, heavily down-pitched refrain of the line “Make a move.” The meditative offering is at once haunting, reflective and oddly sexy — the kind of composition you want to bury your face into.
