Produced by John Hill (Santigold, MIA) and David Sitek (TVOn the Radio, Yeah Yeah Yeahs), Lissy Trullie is the follow up to hercritically acclaimed debut EP Self-Taught Learner.
Playing guitar and writing songs since age eleven, and inbands since she was 14, it was 2009’s self-recorded and appropriately titledSelf-Taught Learner that served as the world’s introduction to Lissy Trullie.The debut EP was made hastily on a tiny budget, but word of its understatedcharm spread and its protagonist was soon on the road with TV On The Radio,Blondie and the Cribs.
Over the intervening years, Trullie began to develop thematerial that would comprise her first album. There were songwriting sessionsin London and Stockholm, but it wasn’t until she headed to LA to collaboratewith producers Hill and Sitek that the record really began to take shape.
Lissy Trullie is coolly confident in feel, its propulsivepunk foundation yielding to memorable pop choruses. Dirty guitars and driving,new wave drums are countered by swirling synths, brass, and layers of vocals,with Trullie’s voice and presence commanding throughout.
It is an assured and confident debut, and one that is everybit worth the wait.
