On April 29th Lily Virginia releases the first song off of her upcoming album Play Me Twice with a live video performance of her intimate yet haunting interpretation of the latin pop sensation “Te Extraño” by the band Xtreme. Watch the teaser here or below.
The video perfectly introduces Ms. Virginia’s new sound. A departure from her lush and otherworldly debut EP (March 2014), it’s a sound that contains both ethereal shimmers and visceral rhythms – a powerful yet minimalistic approach where every note has its own purpose and place. From this open space, Lily Virginia’s confessional lyrics resonate more loudly than ever as her vocals soar, dive, twist and turn darkness into beauty.
She will release the video on Wednesday, April 29th and celebrate the release with the live performance of “Play Me Twice” on May 1st at BAM. Entrance is free and open to all: lilyvirginiabam.splashthat.com
