"Lylz" - Video

“Lylz“ ist die erste Veröffentlichung nach der EP-Serie "Altogether Unaccompanied“ von 2018, darauf folgten u.a. Tourneen mit Weyes Blood und Connan Mockasin, eine Show mit Iggy Pop in Paris, sowie eine Kollaboration mit JPEGMAFIA. Das mit Spannung erwartete Debüt-Album wird noch in diesem Jahr folgen.

Weitere Details zu dem Hintergrund des Songs, lesen sich wie folgt: 

After the French composer Lili Boulanger’s untimely death, her sister Nadia actualized the ultimate sororal pact by devoting her life to spreading the legacy of her younger sister’s musical genius. It was when Deland’s friend Lylz arranged a concert of the late sisters’ compositions a century later that Deland first heard the Boulangers’ music and learned of their immortal devotion to one another. The tone was set, then, for Deland’s epic homage to her friendship with Lylz: a double-edged promise to sisterhood and to the mirthless pursuit of recognition. From a history hopeful in its hauntedness springs “Lylz”: an ode to a friendship born out of mutual esteem and fanned by the flames of worldly dissatisfaction. Recorded with Jake Portrait in his Greenpoint studio, the song playfully unites lush, ominous sounds with innocent yet macabre lyrics, like a candlelit murder mystery in which an unconditional alliance with another player is felt in the warmth of a glance.“Lylz” pens out in loopy lapis cursive the delicate line between a lust to be witnessed, and the buoyant, aching forever-after of female friendship.̈

Listen to “Lylz” and watch the accompanying artful time lapse video over the course of which candles made in the image of the Boulanger sisters slowly burn down. 

The candles are also featured on the “Lylz” single’s beautifully haunting cover artwork.
