Watch the poetic and striking new video from Lilys
As we reported back in August, in it seems psychedelic Philly natives Lilys have begun to emerge from their relative reclusion in recent months. This week they released a truly remarkable new video for an old track: 1994’s “High Writer at Home” from the newly reissued Eccsame the Photon Band.
The video unfolds slowly with shots of our city, from its iconic skyline to its less celebrated rooftops and dilapidated facades, “High Writer at Home” show Philadelphia in its entirety, with no holds barred. Directors Stephen “ESPO” Powers and Joey Garfield then put their unique stamp on the video, which almost serves as a trailer for their documentary, A Love Letter For You.
The result is something totally uncommon and completely captivating, as the slow-building music matches perfectly with many motivational and poetic works of street art that are being created as the video progresses.
