Liphemra – “did u cry” (Stereogum Premiere)

It doesn’t really matter that Liphemra’s “did u cry” only has two lyrics — “Did you even cry? Did you even try?” — because accompanying bursts of experimental pop-rock work as verses of their own. LA-based Liv Marsico is the brains behind the project, and her intricate instrumentation characterizes her frustration just as well as words. Marsico’s vocals simmer as added background noise as well, and the whole track swirls like a tornado of eclipsing sounds that somehow achieve equal balance. The track is taken from Liphemra’s debut EP, set for release in March. Listen below.

The did u cry EP will be released 3/11/16 via Future Gods.
