The manifestation of an ongoing dialogue between Catherine McCandless (Young Galaxy) and Wynn Holmes (choreographer), Riches is a multidisciplinary collaboration of music, dance and performance.

Riches shares “Lily,” the third single to be shared ahead of the duo’s anticipated upcoming debut record and Holmes’ lead vocal debut.

Stream “Lily” via Apple Music, Bandcamp, Spotify + YouTube now.

Lily” is a love song for a primordial creative power, the mother/monster – the central figure of both worship and terror in many horror narratives – with the power of creation and destruction. The lyrics imagine this figure’s ability to disrupt order, to drown out and destroy hegemony and patriarchy. 

Belonging to those who are willing to question things and take them apart, to sacrifice themselves to create out of love, “Lily” is a worship song for transformation and the gentle violence of total deconstruction before the bloom of new forms.

“Lily” was recorded at McCandless’ home/studio, and then finished at Breakglass Studio with Jace Lasek of The Besnard Lakes. 

Up to this point, all of Riches’ writing had been done remotely with Holmes living in New York and McCandless at home in Montreal. For this particular song, the lyrical seeds occurred while Holmes was traveling and working in Serbia and Paris, and McCandless was in Montreal. Eventually they convened in Montreal to record “Lily” together in person, agreeing to eschew the confines of a conventional studio environment to record fireside late at night at McCandless’ apartment in order to capture the ghostly, gentle creepiness of the track.

Stay tuned for more from Riches’ forthcoming concept record, the soundtrack to an imaginary horror film.
