TUNE Kickin' Lilies - All These Bad Dreams
Formed as a low-key supergroup, with members of Laurens Court, Fracas and Rhythm, Wood & Shapes, Kickin’ Lilies was founded in late 2018. The alt rock five-piece began performing in their hometown of Sunderland, supporting North-East fast risers Docksuns
and The Pale White for two sold out shows at Independent (350-capacity venue).
Starting the year with a bang, they were named as one of Independents must see acts for 2020. Heading into the local studio, Motorhouse, (owned by Jordan Miller and Jack Wade of Vandebilt) for a two-day stint, Kickin’ Lilies recorded their debut single ‘All These Bad Dreams’ which is now set for release on Monday 6th July 2020.
Speaking specifically about the track vocalist James Boak explained “lyrically it focusses on the way in which negativity can affect how a person thinks or behaves.” Musically the song cumulates a range of influences, guitarist Ethan Burford describes how some of the guitar
tones he used were chosen to mimic those of Jack White (The White Stripes).
