Lily Desmond delves into differing genres on debut, plays Alphaville 1.11

Lily Desmond delves into differing genres on debut, plays Alphaville 1.11

Lily Desmond’s EP Growing Flowers offers a wide selection of sounds as a debut effort, all of which highlight the artist’s songwriting chops and penchant for ear worm alternative sounds. Beginning on a lush, minimally acoustic note with extended play opener “O Hunter” before going grittily electric on “Oleander Eyes,” culminating with the orchestral and dramatic closer “Glory,” Desmond has no qualms with keeping things interesting, exploring different genres with an ease and comfort few can pull off on a first attempt. As such, the entirety of Growing Flowers provides something for everyone, a pleasant smorgasbord that shows an artist willing to explore a variety of differing instrumentations. Stream it below, and see Lily Desmond at Alphaville on January 11th, supporting Ruby and Lady Pills.
