Liily Relinquish All Forms of Control in “Odds Are It’s Blue” Video
The new single follows “I Am Who I Think You Think I Am,” the band’s first new music in two years, which was released last month.
It’s been over two years since Liily released their debut album I Can Fool Anybody in This Town, an irreverently dance-friendly take on post-punk that could easily fool anybody in their native Los Angeles into believing they’re a U.K. export. The group followed that release up last month with the equally noisy (and cheeky) one-off single “I Am Who I Think You Think I Am,” and today that track sees a successor with “Odds Are It’s Blue,” which lands somewhere between the controlled aggression of METZ and the free-for-all tumult of Girl Band.
“‘Odds Are It’s Blue’ is about battling with the fear and indecision that comes with relinquishing all forms of control over one’s life and learning to be comfortable with letting things be and transpire the way they’re supposed to,” explains the band’s Dylan Nash of the track, highlighting the way the track’s lyrics sync up with the music’s improbably precision. On the chaos end of the spectrum, though, there’s the visual it arrives with, which sees Nash slathered in black paint while the black-and-white color spectrum of the video quickly flashes in and out of inversion.
