I Can Fool Anybody in This Town
Editors’ Notes Liily specializes in cataclysmic, everybody-in-the-pit rock ’n’ roll, boiling over with youthful energy—the band members are still in their teens. On their debut EP, the Southern California quintet plays like they’re running downhill. During an earthquake. As a tornado rages. Songs like “Toro” and “The Weather” bring to mind Foals or Arctic Monkeys at their most agitated. Vocalist Dylan Nash’s charismatic swagger holds it all together, especially on the dancy “Sepulveda Basin,” as the band searches for sweet relief, whether physical or spiritual, across six tracks.
