 Hush Hush Noise evolved out of a collaboration with fellow Victoria musician Eric Hogg to recreate the music of the TV show Twin Peaks.
“And we enjoyed working together so much, we wondered what it would be like to collaborate on original music,” said Lily Fawn, who is best known as one half of  experimental/ swamp rock duo Hank and Lily.
“Eric is the nicest guy. And he’s so easygoing. He’s quite musical. He’s given me the license to be creative. There’s no idea too weird that he isn’t willing to try,” she continued.

“I’m so excited to bring it to Lethbridge (May 24 at the Owl Acoustic Lounge). It’s so different. It’s a lot more experimental and a lot more electronic pop,” she continued, noting the duo have been playing together and recently released their self titled debut CD on Rae Spoon’s record label Coax Records.
“It’s more like (English electronica band) Broadcast or Metric,” she described.

“ And it is a little like Bjork,” she said, agreeing her distinctive high pitched voice does draw the inevitable comparisons to Hank and Lily. But she said it is also a lot different than the Twin Peaks project
“It’s more pop indie rock, but it isn’t Britney Spears,” she continued.

“It’s a collaboration. I wrote 50 per cent of the music and Eric wrote 50 per cent. so it‘s a pretty good mix,” she said adding she plays a variety of percussion, ukulele, vocals and musical saw in addition to singing. Hogg plays guitar, sequencing and sings.
 Hush, Hush Noise are combining the Lethbridge show with a week long tour of B.C. and Alberta including a gig at the East Town Get Down Festival in Calgary, May 25.

They are planning a tour out east of Ontario and Quebec for the summer.
She is glad to be part of Rae Spoon’s record label Coax.
“We’re very excited to be part of Coax. It has ended up being a perfect fit for us. Rae has been very cool so it is great to be part of Coax,” she said.
She noted Hank and Lily are also working on new music, but she wants to  keep the two musical projects separate

“ They’re totally different. Hank and Lily are a lot more theatrical. I don’t wear the deer antlers (she always wears while playing with Hank and Lily) for  Hush Hush Noise,” she said, adding she is also working on new music for Hank and Lily.

“Hank moved to Vancouver, to do more theatre, so it’s hard to get together,” she said, adding they are working on a new Hank and Lily Ep when they have time.
“It’s busy balancing both projects. But we have a new Hank and Lily Ep recorded that we might release this summer,” she observed.
Hush Hush Noise and Tyler Vandendool play the Owl Acoustic Lounge, Friday, May 24. admission is by donation.
