Singer-songwriter Lili Trifillio, better known as Beach Bunny, has been sending infectious waves of her surf-pop sound throughout Chicago for the past two years. Her first release, ANIMALISM, came out in December of 2015 and draws heavily from inspirations such as Bethany Cosentino of Best Coast and Molly Rankin of Alvvays. Beach Bunny next followed up with Pool Party, which was released late last summer. This 5-track EP features her smooth, rich vocals paired with melodic guitar lines. Pool Party is the perfect soundtrack for spring; it’s great for coping with Chicago’s wintery March while simultaneously paving the way for summer 2017, which happens to be when Beach Bunny will be releasing her next EP, Crybaby. While the lyrical content, drawn both from heartbreak and inspiration from her friends, will be similar to her past releases, the young singer promises Crybaby will be a step above her previous releases in terms of quality and sound. Until then, take a listen to Pool Party, which is posted below.
