2) White Lies was a one piece band consisting of Haydé Walraet from Belgium. Currently known as Haydé. She had her small claim to fame with her cover of the Kaiser Chiefs’ song, “Heat Dies Down” which was accepted as a heart warming cover considering Haydé had minimal live footage to work with to re-interpret it her own way.
