Lilly Wood and the Prick is a duo and surprisingly, neither is called “Lilly” or “Prick” but Nili Hadida and Benjamin Cotto. Nili has been all around the world, she was born in Tel-Aviv, grew up in England and then moved to California and then to France, singing Chansons and being an overall awesome person. Benjamin plays guitar.
They play very Californian indiepop infused with 70s funk’n soul and some 90s dancepop/Trip Hop and their recent album “The Fight” is a nice and breezy summer-record that is very laid back and subtle and therefore is a definite slow-burner that offers enough sweet variety and even some disco-songs to survive the short longevity that a summer-record can suffer from.
Plus, I love Nili’s voice, music like this usually has (awesome but) very high female voices that pierce through the night but Nili has this insanely warm and full voice that feels like a hug. Bitches love hugs.
The studio version is less acoustic and has a drum machine and even a piano. It reminds me a little of Zero 7, even the melancholic aspect of their music.
