Hypnotizing and quirky, Little Grey Girlfriend creates and performs a diverse combination of original music. The group plays with conventional pop structure, dance beats, and beautifully accessible vocals; a jazz influenced sense of time and improvisation; and the skill of classically trained musicians. Erika Lloyd's vocals have been described as misguidingly innocent, powerful, and incredibly controlled. Unlike their original EP, which was all-electronic, Cells Planets better captures their live sound (occasionally leaving the sound space of a stage for an imaginary world filled with overdubs and electronic noises.) Using cello, upright bass, the layering of vocal harmonies, and live drums, are some of the new ways in which they formed a mostly acoustic album. This Brooklyn based band has often been compared to Brazilian Girls, The Bird and The Bee, and Au Revoir Simone. Their music is innocent, dark, and danceable at the same time. Miss Lloyd's vocals provide a blanket of purity and natural sense to the juxtapositions of musical styles. Funky trumpet solos... classical piano riffs... live trip hop beats... Little Grey Girlfriend is fun and addictive.
