Lilly Wolf – Pop Dream

Describing themselves as “pop music for pop music snobs”, Brooklyn duo Lilly Wolf has not missed the target. Their latest single comes in handy as an example: a tinkling piano drives the song over a prickly hip-hop beat, while vocals morph from barely lo-fi to full and very firm in the chorus. A mellow melody, just as song’s title implies, of which we can only take delight. Does it make us snob?
