People 'will always make music'

One of the UK's top up and coming bands has expressed optimism about the future of the music industry.

Harry McVeigh, singer in the three-piece band, commented: "People will always make music, people will always listen to music, so there's demand out there."

Speaking to BBC 6 Music, he added that the current problems in the industry are partly down the fact that it did not respond quickly enough to the emergence of the internet.

"If they’d jumped on a bit more, then maybe they’d be a bit more successful," McVeigh observed.

White Lies, which also consists of drummer Jack Lawrence-Brow and bass guitarist Charles Cave, released their debut album earlier this year.

The record entered the UK album charts at number one and has so far yielded three hit singles.
