Static Sounds Club- “Ahead of the release of the album the band has treated us to a new single called “Bending the Lines”. It’s a sumptuous slice of Technicolor psychedelia. It swaggers along at a steady gait like a summer walk through a field of flowers. Warped synth and those trademark wailing guitars provide a stunning foil to Kim’s, as ever, beautiful vocals. It’s a spellbinding introduction to an album that is sure to blow minds.

Interview for print Issue No. 91

Static Sounds Club- 

My favourite psychedelic gazers are back with a second teaser for their new album Cosmic Tidal Wave. The Stargazer Lilies return to spread the ‘Vibes of Love’. My mind was spinning after hearing the previous single, ‘Bending the Lines’, so I literally had to be scraped off the ceiling to write this.

‘Vibes of Love’ is classic Stargazer Lilies. It harks back to that otherworldly sound they created back on Occabot. It opens with that off-kilter synth sound against Kim Fields’ ethereal vocals. Then we take off to that corner of the galaxy where only they exist.

As always, it’s John Ceps’ guitars that create the mystic mist in which the song exists. It’s hard to comprehend that it’s four people making this mountainous wall of sound. I use that word deliberately. Every time I listen to The Stargazer Lilies their music takes me away to some alien mountain top, in a psychedelic, multi-coloured blizzard. It’s so rare that I’m transported so vividly in my head that I cherish my time listening to this band and I know you will too.

Glam Glare-
“Bending the Lines” is a song you can let yourself fall into for a four-and-a-half-minute daydream. Carried on a lush soundscape, Kim Field’s dreamy vocals lead to a psyched-out guitar solo by bandmate John Cep. After that, you want to rewind and experience it again.

DKFM- Interview

Some bands entertain, some thrill and excite but others completely transport you out of your life into strange fantastical worlds. This is my experience of The Stargazer Lilies. They remain a band I am in awe of and now a new album is nearly upon us. A new opportunity to explore the outer reaches of my imagination. Cosmic Tidal Wave is out this Frida,y so I took the opportunity to catch up with the band and ask some questions I’ve been dying to ask.

About The Stargazer Lilies

“Field and Cep channel the reverb-washed slo-mo of Slowdive and the sparkling ambiance of Air into a lush, guitar-swollen whole”. “Psych- Fuzz Epic”
-Spin Magazine

“What your so-called shoegaze is supposed to sound like. Indelible melodies and singing plus great guitar work”.
-Brad Laner of Medicine

“The Stargazer Lilies possess a truly widescreen, cinematic sound with crescendoes that build cascading waves of sound enveloping your whole body. The music is a bit darker than standard dream pop fare but that only makes it that much more mesmerizing.” “If you’re in the need of some serious new dream pop -and who isn’t- you can scarcely do better than The Stargazer Lilies.”

-Pop Matters

“Modern shoegaze often falls flat because it seems more occupied with getting the sound right and foregoing everything else; The Stargazer Lilies get the sound and the feel right and that makes their album much, much more than just revisiting the past”.
-Tim Sendra/All Music
