"But this song is in English?!"
Yep. It is. Lilly Wood and the Prick are definitely French, but they perform primarily in English.
"But I thought this was artists you discovered because that French Canadian woman you constantly post about is in heavy rotation. However, you've posted Lilly Wood and the Prick before."
Yes, yes I have. Thanks for reading. However, you may recall that post was mostly about Robin Schulz. This one isn't. This post is about a band that keeps getting suggested to me, and not about a Robin Schulz remix (although, to be completely fair, that song is included in the suggestions).
Can I get on with it, please?
Lilly Wood and the Prick are a folk duo formed in France. Neither of them is named Lilly Wood. They got together in 2006 to be a songwriting duo, and ended up making a lot of great music. Their first big hit was their first single - "Prayer In C" (see above link) - released two years prior to this, but their biggest and best known hit worldwide - "Prayer In C" (see above link. I explain it all there) - was yet to come.
By the time they released this song, a minor hit for them, in 2012, they had migrated a bit from the folk sound and branched out into a more disco sound. It worked for them here, and it continued to work for them.
