LIILY’s Max Morando On The Group’s “TV Or Not TV” Album, Los Angeles, Future Plans & More

LIILY is comprised of 4 Los Angeles-based musicians — Dylan Nash, Sam De La Torre, Charlie Anastasis and Maxx Morando — who are widely-known for their manic and cacophonous live shows. The hype on the group’s initial performances led to an acclaimed EP titled I Can Fool Anybody In This Town beyond gigs at major festivals (e.g. Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo) and big features within major music portals (e.g. Spotify, Apple Music, Shazam). Late 2021 brought the release of quartet’s debut full-length album, TV Or Not TV, as put out into the world by The Walkmen’s record label Flush Records.

The latest related to TV Or Not TV — which has received rave reviews from DORK, DIY, The Line Of Best Fit and NME alike — is a live video of the song “Monkey.” Meanwhile, the TV Or Not TV surpassed over one million streams on Spotify last month with its focus track reaching 500K streams, as well. Late January found LIILY completing a West Coast tour, with the group recently announcing a May 2022 appearance at BottleRock Napa alongside Metallica, P!NK, Twenty One Pilots, Bleachers and Spoon.

On February 4, 2022, I had the pleasure of speaking with LIILY drummer Maxx Morando via Zoom, as embedded below. More on LIILY, including tour dates, can be found online here, here, here and here.
