Otherworldly synthesizer textures and head-spinning guitar licks are a staple of Philadelphia indie trio Lizdelise, but so are hooks. In the spirit of St. Vincent, the band bridges experimental and widely accessible approaches to rock songwriting, and on their February LP Holy Matrimony, that’s best exemplified by the tremendously poppy “Boy.” -John Vettese for NPR

Lizdelise is a dreamy, art rock trio from Philadelphia. LdL is Liz (guitar/vocals/synth), Mark (bass/vocals), and Sam (drums/pad).
