Lilacs & Champagne – ‘Everywhere, Everyone’

Lilacs & Champagne is Emil Amos and Alex Hall (coincidentally the namesake of Black Tar’s Alex), the production team behind Portland instrumental band Grails.

Grails’ sound is characterised by widescreen desert riffs and slow, steady grooves. Those hallmarks are there on ‘Everywhere, Everyone’, the first track to be released by Lilacs & Champagne ahead of their eponymous debut LP, but they’re palpably filtered through the eyes (ears?) of a producer. A dub-heavy bassline underscores eerie sampled howls, spaghetti western licks and a classically psychedelic vocal.

Lilacs & Champagne will be released on January 31st through Mexican Summer.
