Lillyé

Lillyé a five piece hard rock band from Sydney, Australia released their self titled EP in Summer 2014. Fronted by Virginia Lillyé who, after a long stint performing in stage productions and rock bands in Germany, returned to Australia in 2008 and appeared on The Voice. Virginia then formed the band Lillyé bringing on board musicians with a wealth of experience.

On first listen I was reminded of In This Moment and Pretty Reckless both bands with powerful female singers and a hard rocking edge with energetic screaming riffs. I also picked up some similarities to The Prodigy, say a bit of Firestarter in Under and Breathe in Who I’m Meant to Be.

Tttalk with it’s stacatto drumming start was like Paramore meets Alanis Morrisette I’m thinking Misery Business meets You Oughta Know. A good debut from the Australian five-piece and hailing from the home of bands like AC/DC and Rose Tattoo I wouldn’t expect anything else.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
