Baroque-pop group Liz and the Lost Boys have released a new EP, As If/Explain, on their Bandcamp today. The first song, “As If”, layers Lost Boys’ tried-and-true harp sections with jazzy piano chords and chastises a misguided foe, while the second, “Explain”, is a melodic, Regina Spektor-esque ode to the narrator’s emotional well-being. Frontwoman Liz Ciavolino brings energy to the lyrics with her vibrant tone and use of “talk-singing” to punctuate certain phrases – one of the many wonderfully innovative aspects of Liz and the Lost Boys. The EP release coincides this week with a performance by the Lost Boys with Maitland and Silverton at Johnny Brenda’s on Friday at 8pm. Details here. Check out the EP below.
