Description
Lilly Hiatt returned with Trinity Lane on August 25th, 2017. The 12-song set was produced by Michael Trent of Shovels s Studio Bees in Johns Island, SC. It is the follow up to her acclaimed sophomore album Royal Blue, which Paste Magazine described as a glorious tumble of influences surf rock, Smiths vibes, Laurel Canyon twang and jangle, Sonic Youth flatline, Britpop flourishes, Seattle grunge and Joy Division meets Human League synthery. In addition to her backing band, Trent is featured as a musician throughout, and is joined by his wife and Shovels Everything I Had. Lillys love of the 90s alt-rock she was raised on continues to shine through on Trinity Lane in the distressed guitars and urgent backbeats. She cites the Pixies, Breeders, Dinosaur Jr., and her favorite, Pearl Jam as influences, but there is also something distinctly Americana lurking in the songs. Rolling Stone Country premiered the Michael Carter-directed video for the albums title track HERE, stating, The daughter of John Hiatt, she keeps the family tradition alive, mixing Southern influences Americana, folk and left-of-center country with a raw approach thats better suited to the garage than the saloon. The albums title track is no exceptionthe song finds Hiatt making peace with her old demons, while guitars crash and pianos chime in the background. They continued, Trinity Lane is an empowerment anthem stocked with details from Hiatts everyday life, from the name of her street to the smell of her neighbors cooking.
