Los Angeles psych-folk singer Itasaca is releasing her new album “Spring” on November 1st via Paradise of Bachelors, and following lead single “Bess’s Dance,” she has just released second single “Lily” with a video. It’s yet another gorgeous song and you can check it out below.

Itasca, the California folk musician Kayla Cohen, shares “Lily,” the opening track to her forthcoming new album Spring, alongside a music video shot on Super 8.  In an essay for The Talkhouse, Cohen writes about the song’s origins, inspired by the ghostly hallucinations of a water lily she experienced on the long drive from Los Angeles to New Mexico, where she composed the songs on Spring: “There’s a trope that a songwriter loves a long drive… but there was the lily image, as a wish for psychosis or an invitation to it.” The video depicts an impressionistic dance of domesticity between mythological figures Ceres (played by Cohen), Pan, and Bes.

Itasca’s “Spring” is out November 1st, 2019 on Paradise of Bachelors.
