Last month, the new group DREAMCAR premiered their first single, “Kill For Candy,” off their upcoming self-titled debut album. Now the No Doubt/AFI supergroup is back with a second taste of the new music. “Born To Lie” is a cheeky new wave song about wanting to love, or even like, someone. And yet something about him or her just doesn’t inspire any good feelings.
Like “Kill For Candy,” “Born To Lie” is a convincing ’80s-sounding song that takes clear inspiration from the new wave groups that dominated that decade. It’s an infectious song that promises more great music on the upcoming album. Watch the “Born To Lie” lyric video below:

DREAMCAR is made up of three members of No Doubt: bassist Tony Kanal, guitarist Tom Dumont, and drummer Adrian Young. Their last album, Push And Shove, came out in 2012. While their singer Gwen Stefani is busy with her solo career – she just released This Is What The Truth Feels Like last year – the three bandmates are exploring their new wave side with DREAMCARE. Frontman Davey Havok is best know for his work with AFI. That band released their self-titled 10th album this January. AFI (also known as The Blood Album) includes the singles “White Offerings,” “Snow Cats,” and “Aurelia.”
