“Woods’ dreamy, pastoral soundscapes continue to mature as they approach 20 years as a band, and ‘Between the Past’ and ‘White Winter Melody’ unfold a feeling of continual growth.” — Paste
"Perennial moves aptly between the pastoral and the cinematic and brims with the quiet emotion of a well-travelled set of music makers still discovering new truths about themselves." — Shindig! (****)

Welcome back music listeners of the world to Season 2. Today marks the start of a new season @ifitbeyourwill podcasts with a sweet line up coming down the pipe this Fall & Winter. No better way to start a new season off with a bang than having on indie folk sister duo Lily & Madeleine out of Indiana. The sister’s are on the eve of releasing their 5th full length album Nite Swim, coming out October 6th, 2023. It was a great pleasure to talk about their music, their journey and what the future holds with these wonderfully artistic women. Be sure to listen at the end of the episode to their latest single off of the up and coming record, entitled Rolling Rock. Enjoy… 🎵
Lily & Madeleine create candid music with deep emotional and personal resonance. Born and raised in Indiana, the sisters came from a music-loving family and explored their individual musical tastes in adolescence. They began their own songwriting journey in 2012 at the age of 15 and 17 respectively. They have released four full-length albums: Lily & Madeleine (2013) and Fumes (2014) on Asthmatic Kitty Records, and Keep It Together (2016) and Canterbury Girls (2019) on New West Records. Lily & Madeleine's music has chronicled their coming-of-age as modern women and artists, and the sisters' early folk-pop sound has evolved, with a mature rock edge and their trademark “blood harmony" at the core. Inspired by alternative artists such as Feist, Beck, Lykke Li, and others, Lily & Madeleine are poised to share new music with a new sound later this year.

"On their melancholy song "Self Care,"...Lily and Madeleine Jurkiewicz harmonize over a dreamy piano waltz, surveying the disconnect between a lover’s “beautiful eyes” and “blank stare."
"The thing that flags them as extraordinary is their sibling vocal blend, deep and seamless and relaxed."
"Their music — a restrained, homespun mix of folk and pop with undeniably sweet harmonies — certainly ranks among the loveliest we've heard."
"Cinematic, swirling, joyous"

"POSTDATA SHINES ON GRACEFULLY ANTHEMIC 'INSIDE OUT'...Catchy alt-rock anthem that shimmers with the glittery shades of The Head and The Heart, Lord Huron and Vance Joy." – Glide
"Intricate sounds, soft things ruffling on the edges, emerging in the choruses, rising in the quiet and the subdued spaces." – Psychedelic Baby Mag
"Proof that inventive, envelope-pushing indie rock hasn't disappeared off the map just yet" ****

"Every one of dayaway’s songs is perfect for a day on the beach, but “ocean free” inspires you to connect with the ocean and send your problems out to sea. The slow track features a soft, airy vocal from Amber Renee, creating an ethereal sound that’s comparable to Men I Trust and Beach House."
- Glasse Factory
"Fittingly, 'hot blue summer' is another dose of summery indie pop, slotting easily into the band’s well-honed penchant for sun-lit love songs. Hazy surf guitars enlace with dreamy beds of synths and airy vocal melodies, crafting a sound equally indebted to Beach House as The Beach Boys"
