LOS-ANGELES BASED BAND
RELEASE NEW SINGLE “SEPULVEDA BASIN”
ANNOUNCE DEBUT EP
I CAN FOOL ANYBODY IN THIS TOWN
LISTEN TO “SEPULVEDA BASIN”:
“Liily say they take their cues from artists such as Rage Against the Machine and Foals, and the new single [‘Sepulveda Basin’] pops the top on bottled-up emotions.”
– Kevin Bronson, Buzzands LA
LOS ANGELES, CA January 18, 2019 – Rising alt rock band Liily, a crew of teenagers hailing from deep in the San Fernando Valley, are sharing their latest single “Sepulveda Basin” today. The band says “the song is about the pleasures of living in the greatest place in the world: the San Fernando Valley.”
“Sepulveda Basin” follows their two breakout tracks “Toro” and “Sold” from 2018, both which will appear on their forthcoming debut EP I Can Fool Anybody In This Town, due out on March 8 via Southern California-based indie label Flush Records.
The EP will follow a string of tour dates across the US with Glorious Sons, and comes just in time for their mid-March performance at SXSW. The band is currently hosting a month-long residency at The Echo in Los Angeles, with their DIY underground festival moniker ‘Brekfest’ every Tuesday in January by way of Flush Records, KLOS’ Check One…Two, and Spaceland Presents. The Brekfest set also includes performances from some of LA’s finest like Starcrawler, Skating Polly, Death Valley Girls, Plague Vendor, and Superet.
Inhabiting a diverse and sprawling city where both Odd Future and Jane’s Addiction somehow seem to have crossed their paths, and raised on a wildly internet culture where kids can seemingly digest the entire history of western music in a matter of months, Liily makes music that draws on all the jagged stimuli of their upbringings to make something distinctly Los Angeles in 2019. It’s suburban valley music from the future, even as it calls back to 1991.
Liily’s local shows reflect that crazed manic intensity. Audiences of often under-aged kids turn up to dance and absolutely tear the place apart alongside the band. Having started out playing mostly house parties and warehouses, it’s only recently that this new youth culture has even entered into nightclubs.
Their music is the sound of a gang of teenagers kicking the shit out of every room they play, harkening in a new generation of bands with guitars, and setting out to build an entirely new culture where everyone can jump and in take part.
Liily has already received support from the rock community since their inception, with radio-play on local favorites KCSN and KLOS, and streaming love with both “Sold” and “Toro”. The “Sold” video premiered exclusively on Spotify’s ‘Rock This’ and ‘New Noise’ playlists, since gaining nearly 400k views and over 1M streams. Meanwhile, Apple Music playlisting has included hits on ‘New Releases (Rock),’ ‘Hot Tracks (Rock)’, ‘Rock Workout,’ ‘Breaking Rock,’ ‘New Rock,’ and ‘Best of the Week’.
