EXCLUSIVE: Stream Lilly Wood & The Prick’s New Album ‘The Fight’ In Full

It sounds like a modern day fairy tale. A chance meeting in a Parisian bar that organically led to a soulful and intimate musical collaboration. Now, five years on from that serendipitous encounter, Nili and Ben of Lilly Wood & The Prick are getting ready to release their second album, The Fight, and you can stream it exclusively right here ahead of its release this Friday!

On the new album, Hadida and Cotto bring their tuneful spark and delicate song craft to the genres of soul, jazz, and lounge music, combining all three with shades of Belfast trip-hop and chill-out, into “an unabashed, disabused, melancholy and playful kind of pop.”

The Fight was recorded in an attempt to “find a perfect balance.” The band divested themselves of the DIY techniques of their previous output, opting for a more precise and polished sound, all the while staying true to their tastes and their perceptions.

The pair brought on board their original production team of Pierre Guimard and Pierrick Devin, who ensured that “each sound [and] each word is more carefully selected and applied”, creating an even more involved listening experience for fans.

Set for release this Friday, 18th October, The Fight has already yielded the bouncy, yet characteristically elegiac and atmospheric single Where I Want To Be (California). Readers can watch the dazzling video below, which matches the exquisite quality of Hadida’s vocals.

Though a step forward for the pair, The Fight sees the band retain the trademark candidness and passion of their earlier work, with lyrics dealing with issues of adulthood and the loss of innocence and idealism, as well as ruminations on the past and the future.
