The Kaves - '1000 White Lies'

  • 2 min read

The Kaves are a fourpiece alternative indie/rock band hailing from Glasgow, Scotland consisting ofDave MacDiarmid on guitar and lead vocals, brothersLiam Prior on lead guitar andSean Prior on bass guitar, andEvan Hunter on Drums.

Forming in late 2019, they released their debut single‘Migraines’ in September 2021, followed by a run of shows in their native Scotland before releasing their second single‘What's In Your Head?’ in March 2022. After a sold out headline show at Glasgow's infamous venue,Nice ‘n’ Sleazys in the spring, The Kaves headed back into the studio to record their third single, ‘Premonitions’ in October 2022, which received high end radio play from the likes of Sirius XM in America as well as plays all over the world in Australia and Canada and South Africa.

The brand new single fromThe Kaves '1000 White Lies’ is a beautiful melodic offering with its slow and measured strumming guitar intro. It gives the listener a sense of the track having been deliberately stripped back to allow the wistful  lyricism with their contrasting gravelly vocals to come into full effect. There’s a sense of knowing, of foreboding but begging not to be told the inevitable truth. The track then takes a turn as it builds and bubbles into a crescendo for the final act, the pace picking up in a certain defiance before a final mic drop and sudden fade out moment brings everything to a close.

The band said of the new single, “‘1000 White Lies’ was written around this time last year. It’s our first real stripped back acoustic tune. Having played it live at the likes of King Tuts and Nice n Sleazy, it got a real positive reaction live, so we decided it was time to release it as a single."

"Essentially the track is about having a hard time facing the reality of certain parts of life. Whether that be in relationships, your passions, goals or growing up. Not having the ability to embrace the truth as it can be tough to accept so believing all the “White Lies” is sometimes easier to deal with.”


Although only relatively still in their infancy as a band, have made impressive inroads with their single releases to date, showcasing them in headline gigs in and around Scotland. The single  ‘Premonitions’ was launched by the band at their headline show with new music taste makers This Feeling at their Glasgow Broadcast gig and was also performed by the band during the Man City vs Liverpool football match.

The band have several live gigs lined up in the coming months which are yet to be officially announced and fans are therefore advised to keep an eye on the band's socials listed below for updates.
