Lily Seabird - "Cavity"

Burlington, VT's Lily Seabird's latest single is one you're going to want to check out. "Cavity" mixes indie rock and alt-country in a way that is deliriously engaging. It would have made a fantastic standard folk or singer-songwriter track if it stayed on its original course, but instead Seabird has crafted a shockingly noisy ballad. Listening to "Cavity" reminds me of the first time I listened to Yankee Hotel Foxtrot or Ripely Pine in that I truly have no idea what is going to come next. Both albums created were based on standard alt-country and indie rock, but then just went off in their own directions without any warning. Seabird does this with "Cavity" in a way that is a pure sonic delight. 

Lily Seabird says of her upcoming album:

“The album is about loss, coming of age, and sadness but there are also all these moments where happiness takes over. It can be two things at once: life isn't just pain and sadness, there’s also joy. They can all exist at the same time. Alas, is an expression of grief but it’s also for letting go.”

You can watch the video for "Cavity" below. Alas is due out January 12 on bud tapes, and is available for pre-order on Bandcamp. For more on Lily Seabird, check out the artist on Instagram.
