“Will Ivy, young and relentless, already had a presence in the thriving San Francisco music scene for years playing in BRIDEZ, Honey, Hunx and his Punx, and Girls. Kirsten Knick had been a model and stylist, but always had a passion for music and she found her path to pursue it in Ivy. Dreamed out on alcohol and vicodin, Ivy & Knick began experimenting with keyboards and writing songs. The excitement and chemistry was immediate and they decided that night to pursue LILAC as a reality and a band. Adding bassist and close friend Chrys Nodal to the line-up, they recorded their well-received self-titled EP with producer Patrick Brown at San Francisco’s Different Fur Studios after he saw them live and fell in love with their sound.”
Maybe a little late with this one but definitely worth skipping back a few weeks or so, I`m really surprised Lilac hasn’t beaten a grungy path through our increasingly fickle and trend-ridden blogsphere. The alternative Indie four-piece have a cool but familiar sound, almost creating hypnotic melodies through heavy Shoegaze and spontaneous grunge. Drummers take note, physical endangerment can occur with this style of percussion. We`ve chosen to post the lead single `Shame`, call it a happy medium striking a devotion to psychedelic influenced Rock`N Roll, in fact most of the album is menacingly frank with it`s personal lyrical perspective, as musicians these guys are certainly the real thing. Check out the freakish video for the track, beware crazy strobe lights and video affects may permanently alter your way of thinking!
