CL Critic Matthew Warhol Recommends: The Stargazer Lilies’s gothic, shoegaze sounds hold a special place in my black heart. I interned for a summer at the band’s one-time Savannah-based record label/PR company Graveface Records/Noisy Ghost PR. While sending hundreds of emails to music blogs promoting their album, We Are The Dreamers, I gave the album repeat spins. As I completed my monotonous task, I found the The Stargazer Lilies’s music put me in a trance Their dreamy soundscapes sucked me into a fog. I can only imagine how this state is enhanced when witnessing them live, vocals and guitar washing over your head. The rabbit hole is calling your name. OnE oF uS! oNe Of Us!— MW
From the venue:There's a moment three songs into the Stargazer Lilies' new LP where everything falls into place like a puzzle that had been missing one last piece for years. With battery acid beats and overblown guitars leading the way alongside sand-blasted choruses and lumbering bass lines, "Foreverless" sounds like a metal record submerged in sugar packets and cough syrup — heavy as hell, yet full of hooks.
