Philadelphia indie trio Lizdelise, led by multi-instrumentalist Elizabeth de Lise have garnered local acclaim since their inception in 2014. Rounded out by bassist and collaborator Mark Watter and drummer Alyssa Resh, the group is preparing to release their new collection of sounds Body on Sheer Luck Records. The four songs are Lizdelise's most fully realized masterpieces yet, reminiscent of St. Vincent, Japanese Breakfast and Dirty Projectors. "These songs feel like a neat little timeline of my mental health, and subsequently, my queer journey," explains de Lise, who uses she/they pronouns. They continue, "part of this album is embracing my body as inevitable, but mutable, and not separate from who I am as a person...but also not the ruler of who I am. So much of my body dysphoria came from/comes from trying to perform a typical representation of what it means to be a beautiful (cis) woman, and ultimately, a sexually appealing (cis) woman, which news flash, I can’t be, because I ain’t one!"
