Cry to Liphemra's newest post-breakup single from Future Gods

The experimental pop act Liphemra just dropped the title track to their upcoming EP "did u cry", and it is so lit. Gradients of fuzz drone, sliced loops, synth pads, and bass licks kick up the turbulence as singer/percussionist Liv Marsico lets loose a torrent of reverb between the verses. Guitarist Trey Findley conjures abrasive wails and honeyed cries as bassist Miles Gray and drummer Chris Parise play off the groove with dead accuracy. This interplay of hip hop and noise builds into a massive sonic whirlwind, receding as Marsico brazenly asks the question: "Did you even cry? / Did you even try?"

The simple verse recalls the sheer emotional weight of post-breakup feels, as crushing as the instrumental monument built and razed before it.

"You break up... Never talk again. You just want to know if they cried," says Marsico of the song.

The team has been holed up in their Mid City rehearsal space for the better part of the year, painstakingly recording and producing the EP after a brilliant string of performances with Algiers, Young Fathers, HOLY CHILD, and appearances at Lolipalooza and Echo Park Rising. Liphemra is at the final stretch, honing their live sound to reflect the EP's brilliance — there likely won't be any further shows until early next year, says Marsico.

Liphemra performing with Young Fathers 4.24 at The Echo

Blood of underground hip hop and jazz courses through her veins as she tightens her traditional grip. Radiohead and Flying Lotus color her psychedelia-coated lips as she paints haunting, hypnotic images laced with electronic beats. She's waded deep into LA's DIY scene, playing with bands like Gothic Tropic and Tapioca & the Flea, even interning for LA's underground hip hop label Stones Throw. Now, multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter Liphemra steps out front and center to make her own way. Working with vintage drum pieces, pedals, loopers, and synths, the experimental siren has captivated onlookers with dissonant allure and breakbeat rhythms, opening for groundbreaking artists like Connan Mockasin, Blonde Redhead, and DIIV.

Liphemra will perform live at The Echo next Friday, April 24 with Young Fathers. Listen to her newest single "Magazines" below. - Ryan Mo, photo credit: Carl Pocket
