SKOPE IT HERE!  

The band’s forthcoming debut full-length “Capades” is set for a February 24th release.   The album is a collection of whimsical indie pop songs with electronic flourishes.   Lilly’s voice is playful and flirty, complementing her idiosyncratic songwriting and the detailed musical arrangements.   Be sure to check it out if you’re a fan of Stereolab, Au Revoir Simone, or The Bird and The Bee.
