Overview:
Petal has always been a deeply personal project for songwriter & lead singer Kiley Lotz. Formed in 2012 in her hometown of Scranton, Pennsylvania, it currently has a rotating line-up that includes members of Tigers Jaw, Three Man Cannon, Halfling, Wicca Phase Springs Eternal, and Captain We’re Sinking. Shame, the band’s debut LP three years in the making, is a honest and perceptive exploration of the album’s namesake. These twelve tracks recall the elastic indie rock of Death Cab For Cutie and Pedro the Lion - sometimes sombre, sometimes upbeat, but always beautifully & thoughtfully crafted. The range of songs and emotions on Shame are notable: tracks like “Heaven” and “Camera Lens II” are indie-pop pleasures, brimming with nostalgic remembrance, while one of the album’s brightest moments comes on “Nature,” a brave song lyrically and vocally, as Lotz sings unaccompanied over a singular drum beat, proclaiming fearlessly, “I want to be part of the nature you were born from.” The most rewarding part of listening to Shame is realizing that as Kiley Lotz looks inwards and honestly reveals what she sees, she shows everyone else that those anxieties, doubts and longings that come with the territory of love are universally felt.
