There’s no apology. Not a least when it comes to lylyly’s song ‘No Sleep’. You don’t watch them to be coddled. You don’t watch them to feel self-congratulatory.
You watch them for rock that will kick your butt in the most unique way.
Guitar driven ‘No Sleep’ is another fascinating fabulousness from Emily Mineo and gang. Music project of the Philadelphia based artist, it continues that urging rebelliousness you’d find in the heart of gentler and warmer, White Stripes.
Said Emily: “I wrote the song as an over-caricatured portrait of the indignation and demands that spring up from a a place of feeling misunderstood and neglected. It can be easier to lash out at the people who won’t stay with you than to just stay with and be present for yourself. Looking back, this song was an outlet for those feelings so that they didn’t manifest in a damaging way in my daily life.”
lylyly is a scrappy pop rock outfit unafraid to embrace their confessional, singer-songwriter roots in the context of both raw garage rock and sparse, orchestral arrangements.
From lylyly’s self titled LP, there is no sleep until… Philadelphia.
