more info
A Lily is James Vella’s solo project. Something he tinkers with while not working or touring with his other band yndi halda. The project and name has been with him since he was a teenager
a title for the records he makes with his home recording setup - piles of guitars
exotic string instruments he finds on his travels
his childhood drumkit
tape recorders
microphones
Casio miniature keyboards
effects pedals
occasional guest musicians and so on. And a love of pure pop music. Verses
choruses
singing along in the shower. This new single has been his extra-curricular work for a couple of months. It's about the strange personal disassociation you can feel when unsure of your own truths and being. A time-consuming concept trimmed into a few minutes of music. He was listening to lots of Motown when he wrote it. The drum beats
the close harmonies
soft
lulling backing vocals. The b-side - Their Child Lay Beside Them - is about losing loved ones. His grandfather passed away while he was working on this song. It was one of the saddest things he’s ever experienced. His voice is on the song.
