New Fries share new single “Lily”

​Last week, New Fries shared the final single from their forthcoming album ​”Is The Idea Of Us​”​, out on August 7th through Telephone Explosion (Badge Epoque Ensemble, Pantayo, Chandra, Scott Hardware). The band’s first new material since 2016’s More (produced by Holy Fuck’s Graham Walsh), “Lily” is a perfect example of New Fries’ glitching and fidgeting No Wave inspired meditations.

On the new track, the band offered:

“Lilydale, New York is a caged community inhabited almost exclusively by mediums–those who communicate with the spirit world. It is a community of liars and people with special spiritual gifts. People across North America travel here to connect with the deceased. Anni spent many summers in Lilydale as a kid–her grandfather was a medium.”

The Toronto-based experimental legends are one of the best kept secrets in the city, and with their new album they delve deeper into their unconventional, ever-changing sound. Working closely with Carl Didur (Zacht Automaat, formerly U.S. Girls), they settled on a fresh new direction. Focusing more on space and repetition, finding the in-between and reflecting on it, examining that transition. Is The Idea Of Us is anxious in its repetitions and unsure of genre, a reflection of musicians and non-musicians making music together; New Fries insist on doing it differently. “Is The Idea of Us” will be released on August 7th, you can pre-order it here.​
