With a name that hints at color and nature, Lylak makes a point to play with heart and leave the stage a bit more beautiful than they found it.
The Lexington KY indie rock quartet formed in 2017:
Interweaving vocals, from Gideon Maki (vox/guitar) and Elizabeth Varnado (vox/violin/guitar), present approachable lyrics which explore the lighter and darker aspects of life and love, memory and friendship.
Dynamic guitar licks catch the ear while swelling synths, moody violin, and intricate rhythms (Paul Varnado, bass/synth; Zachary Martin, drums) color the background.
Lylak’s third EP Leave it to Light showcases the benefit of letting disparate ideas simmer and steep to eventually meld together in the confidence of musical camaraderie.
