A Lily Gray / Press

“A Lily Gray = Ashes Divide + Karnivool Polished, local alt-rock group A Lily Gray returns with another teaser of an EP that will get you salivating for a full album from this quintet. I am a huge fan of the melodies this band is able to build on tracks like “Gone Away” that are simultaneously uplifting and sorrowful. The track “Velvet Letter” is, overall, the weakest of the four (a subjective measurement, certainly), sounding somewhat repetitive aside from the sweet ripping guitar solo bridge. David Lynn’s vocals continue to impress with his clear and passionate delivery, made all the more powerful by his band’s ability to construct thoughtful composition around him. These guys just flat-out know how to make a beautiful, self-aware rock album. –Megan Kennedy”

“ A Lily Gray = Dead Letter Circus + Ashes Divide Local rock group A Lily Gray has released a solid and highly enjoyable EP with The Fall. The album is ethereal and emotive, a bit more complex than most standard rock, but not quite stepping into any “progressive” territory, and has a strong foundation in the complementary sound of the music with singer David Lynn’s unique and far-reaching, clean vocals. Woven throughout and underneath are clear lines of influence from Tool and Deftones, and some sections also conjure shades of Shinedown. “The Fall” is their strongest single track on this four-song EP, with a supremely catchy melody and guitar work reminiscent of Billy Howerdel’s upbeat, string-tripping style. (Really, fans of any of Howerdel’s projects would not be disappointed.) There is a great, heavy ending to the EP’s closer “Adaline” that makes me excited to hear more from this group’s secret stash. A Lily Gray is a group that has a cohesive vision, passionate”
