Indie Rock Hit Parade Live Session: Petal
For this Indie Rock Hit Parade Live Session, we’re joined by an artist from NEPA (that’s Northeast Pennsylvania for those of you non-Pocono people). Kiley Lotz has been recording and performing as Petal since 2012. and even joined us for a Key Studio Session when her 2015 album The Shame was released. Three years later, and on release day for her new album, Magic Gone (Run For Cover), Kiley returns to our studio with a borrowed guitar that looks just like hers, and a selection of gorgeous new songs.
The songs from Magic Gone are stripped back to their cores in this session, leaving you face-to-face with Kiley’s extremely personal lyrical style. From confronting unwanted advances to taking stock of the building blocks of your life, there’s a Petal song for every season. The session includes a web-exclusive performance of the album’s early single “Comfort.”
You can see Kiley and the full-band version of Petal at two sold-out shows at PhilaMOCA, where they’ll be performing with labelmates Camp Cope.
