Real Lies are a London electronic group formed in 2012. They signed with Marathon Artists and released the critically acclaimed Deeper single.[1][2]

Their single, Dab Housing, premiered on BBC Radio 1's Annie Mac Sunday Show. Often compared to the likes of Mike Skinner and New Order, the London trio have garnered praise for their ability to embody what it is to be young and adrift for this generation.[3] The band are from the Holloway area and reference the surrounding areas of Islington and Haringey in their tracks.

Their debut album Real Life was released in 2015, receiving positive reviews from NME, The Guardian and Clash (magazine).[4]

The Checks was released in 2018 on their own Unreal label. Clash Magazine called it "a gritty, rave empowered return." [5]
