Every Monday through Friday, we deliver a different song as part our Song of the Day podcast subscription. This podcast features exclusive KEXP in-studio performances, unreleased songs, and recordings from independent artists that our DJs think you should hear. This week, we are featuring new local songs as selected by Audioasis host DJ Sharlese.

Lilac - Secrets (MP3)

Sharlese's pick for today is "Secrets" by Lilac from her 2015 self-released Dream Journal EP. Says Sharlese...

I came across Lilac because of her music video for “Secrets.” It was done by Aashish Gadani, who is part of the Seattle visual artists duo called Coldbrew Collective. I was so in love with the video and how crazy colorful it was and that it made me feel like I was going to have a seizure that I decided to feature it in the quarterly music video showcase Videoasis and play the music on Audioasis! Madeline Franks is Lilac and she has intertwined her wonderful vocals with some awesome production. Her EP Dream Journal is a great listen!

You can follow Lilac on Facebook and Bandcamp to keep track of upcoming shows. And watch the video that made Sharlese feel like she was going to have a seizure below:
