Lily Arminda

“Lily Arminda spills secrets with endearing confidence as she welcomes you inside the indie rock heaven of her latest EP, “DTR.” Produced by Daniel Álvarez de Toledo and Jordan Dunn-Pilz of beach goth band Toledo at their Bushwick studio, “DTR” (Define the Relationship) palpitates the highs and lows of relationships left up in the air. A thrilling twist from her previous work, with evolved lyrics and hi-fi production, this transition is a well executed amplification of Arminda’s already angelic sound. Growing up in Columbus, Ohio, Arminda got her start opening for artists such as Lucy Dacus and Benjamin Francis Leftwich at local venues while working on and releasing her debut EP, “The Hourglass.” Her second EP, “Mismatched Poetry,” was born during a week spent in Jacksonville Beach, Florida collaborating with indie folk singer/songwriter/producer Corey Kilgannon. Shortly after the creation of “Mismatched Poetry,” Arminda moved to New York City and found herself collecting memories for the creation of “Neighborhood,” a lo-fi folk album rooted in the romance of the Lower East Side neighborhood of Manhattan. While Arminda established herself as a “soft-spoken songstress” on past projects, she’s found her voice on “DTR.” The leading single “Why Don’t You Kiss Me in the Morning?” opens the EP with pleading lyrics cushioned by exhaling instrumentation inspired by the film “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.” This track eases listeners into the next chapter of Lily Arminda, letting qualities of her past work and qualities of her new sound coexist. The EP ahead is full of surprises with more singles to come, each song different from the last. “DTR” is expected June 4th, 2021.”   - Spotify
