Sweet Sweet Lies – Capital Of Iceland

| On 01, Aug 2011

This is a lively narrative song from Sweet Sweet Lies where they outline the characteristics of a girl who is a “better you” In the chorus we hear “She is tall and much more pretty; and she knows the capital of Iceland”. Sweet Sweet Lies have crafted an intricate tale of getting over a lover and moving on to someone new (and better).

This cheeky song has influences of folk, country and rock with an infectious chorus- mainly due to the funny and enthralling lyrics.

Ironic, moody and at times angry this cheeky song has influences of folk, country and rock with an infectious chorus-  due to the easy melody and backing fiddles but  what keeps the listener fascinated are the funny and daring lyrics to this charming song.
