Tiny Desk Live performance : NPR

Whereas there is a quiet component to Lizzy McAlpine‘s music, there’s additionally an explosive component of electronics, electrical guitars and drums on her 2022 album 5 seconds flat that feels cinematic. So when Lizzy informed us that every one she’d want for her Tiny Desk live performance had been some microphones and some acoustic guitars, I used to be shocked — curious and keen to listen to her rise to the problem of our intimate setting.

Her backing vocalists are a trio coincidentally and appropriately referred to as Tiny Habits, a gaggle she met on Instagram a few 12 months in the past. «I wished to recontextualize the songs on the album with simply vocals and guitar,» Lizzy says. «I really feel like that is how I write most of my songs anyway. I simply wished them to be extra intimate.» And with these harmonies, Lizzy’s gently expressive voice and a little bit of acoustic guitar, the 23-year-old’s tales got here by means of powerfully clear.
