LILLY WOOD AND THE PRICK - WHERE I WANT TO BE (CALIFORNIA) - SINGLE - OUT 20TH SEPTEMBER!
There are two ways to get what you want in life: you count on your luck and wish for the best, or you fight for what you want. This pair, LILLY WOOD AND THE PRICK could have counted on their lucky star, the one that guided them to where they are today. But Nili and Ben decided to fight to achieve their dream. Two years after their magical and unexpected success, Lilly Wood and The Prick get back into the ring to conquer our hearts with the first single 'Where I Want To Be (California)' from their upcoming second album, 'The Fight'.
Their trajectory has been exemplary. Their paths crossed five years ago in Paris, in a bar, late at night. It’s easy to guess what brought them together, apart from pure chance. Both in their early twenties, Nili and Ben were finding their way, floating between melancholy and lightheartedness and found music as something to hang on to. That same night, with her on the mic and him on the guitar, they spontaneously composed their first ballads made of a heady kind of folk blues, not knowing where it would lead them.
The rest of their story is like a fairytale in which the public waved its magic wand to send Lilly Wood and The Prick to new heights: 2011 was a magical year that brought them a gold record, a sold-out tour (Olympia, Bataclan, Cigale...), the biggest festivals (Rock en Seine, Les Francofolies...) and a Victoire de la Musique as the new Revelation (voted by the public).
The story could have ended there, but the euphoria and the energy brought on by these successes soon got the duo composing again, as if to convey the story of the past three years. One thing is for sure, if the first album was the product of a spontaneous verve, this second record is that of a battle to succeed. They logically called it 'The Fight'.
The duo will be paying their debut visit to Australia for shows in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne in January 2014.
