PRAISE FOR LILA GOLD
“Lila’s vision is clear; she sings this sort of down-on-its-luck, intensely romantic pop-rock which looks at dirty, dark things — experiences, neighborhoods — through resolutely rose-tinted glasses.”
“infectiously pop-y musings on modern isolation…with a look that is equal parts coquette and streetwear”
“Overflowing with incredible energy, the tinted colours are wonderfully over the top, with Lila Gold piecing together trop-pop, reggaeton, and bubbling electronics.”
“Lila Gold is creating her own wave in pop music with psychedelic visuals that are just as stimulating as her new tracks. Lila’s music, which is tied with synthy progressions and rhythmic bass, encompasses her ethereal emotions.”
“gritty lyrics; raw, sugar-dusted vocals; and hazy, melodic indie-pop that wouldn’t sound out of place on a playlist alongside Zella Day, Halsey, Hayley Kiyoko and Troye Sivan”
“The pop-synth tune is a perfect composite of raw emotion that romanticizes Gold’s deepest insecurities, as she dances in between alternate dimensions.”
Introducing Sydney-born, NYC-raised, Lila Gold, who today shares new single and video for “Big Sad Eyes” off her forthcoming EP, HYPER-HEAVEN. Produced by grammy-nominated LA production duo DJDS and grammy-nominated John Hill, “Big Sad Eyes” is an infectious pop bubbler influenced by hip hop, dancehall, reggaeton, and electronic pop. Lila will also play an NYC set tonight at Elsewhere (Zone 1) supporting Salt Cathedral, tickets here.
Watch/listen to “Big Sad Eyes” HERE.
The sci-fi inspired video, directed & designed by Natalie Falt (Billie Eilish, King Princess, Grimes), plays with the idea of transcendental science featuring Lila exploring different inner psyche dimensions via virtual reality.
Lila is quickly making a name for her style & sound: she’s previously supported Empress Of, Wafia, Charlotte OC, among others; and has garnered fans at i-D, Clash, Mlik, Ladygunn, Galore, Westwood and more. Lila also co-launched an NYC-based, streetwear fashion line, Porcelain, sold online and in boutique shops like Miami’s Lower East Coast.
“Big Sad Eyes” adds another layer to Lila’s whimsical world, lyrically mirroring her own mixed bag of emotions — depressive thoughts, anxiety, heartbreak — but all tied up in an infectiously catchy, synth pop bow.
