LALA LALA shares new single “Memory” ahead of US tour dates

Lala Lala, the project of Chicago-based musician Lillie West, is finally starting her US tour dates in support of new album, ‘I Want The Door to Open’released last Autumn via Hardly Art, and today releases a new single, Memory.”

As Bandcamp describes, “[I Want The Door To Open’s] production has the rippling feel of a psychedelic experience,” and Memory follows in-step with this sound. Co-produced by Andrew Broder, it opens with West’s alto intoning over murky, melancholy sonics, and in a quick turn, expands with synth, a jockeying beat, and warped vocals that hover in the background. “‘Memory’ is about ‘euphoric recall’ and letting go of fantasy,” says West. “Is it magic or a meaningful coincidence or are you just obsessed?” It features synth and piano by WHY’s Yoni Wolf, who co-produced ‘I Want The Door To Open’

The Lala Lala ‘I Want The Door To Open’ North American tour is underway. Lillie (vocals, guitar) is joined by Abby Black (drums/samples), Reno Cruz (guitar, vocals), and Yasmine Mifdal (keyboard, saxophone). A full list of dates can be found below and tickets are on sale now. New European dates are to be scheduled in due course.
