Liphemra: Did U Cry
Double Dutch on the dark side
Newcomer Liv Marsico grew up playing drums at Los Angeles County High School for the Arts, and has sat in with a host of the city's most influential acts including Cold War Kids, Blonde Redhead and DIIV. But the desire to do more than keep time inspired her to embark on her experimental project, Liphemra, and compose and sing on the darkly charged track, "Did U Cry". "We scouted local competitive jump-rope teams and cast the girls from a one called The Foothill Force," says filmmaker Liza Mandelup of her second time collaborating with the musician. "If anything is worth documenting it's something that won't last forever, and I've always felt that way about adolescence – it's just a moment."
