After Ellen Premiere: Carry Illinois Releases ‘Pushing Sound’ Ahead of New EP ‘Work in Progress’

We were first introduced to indie-pop band Carry Illinois in 2017 when they released their EP Garage Sale. Last December, we spoke to frontwoman Lizzy Lehman about the inspiration behind the music video Shameful Feeling. The band is set to release their latest EP, Work in Progress, which will be released this week on 5/25. Ahead of the release, we are honored to premiere the track “Pushing Sound.”

“Pushing Sound is a song about wanting to escape the difficult realities of everyday life. The song explores the need to drown out anxiety, pressure, and noise by replacing it with hopeful human connection, strength, emotional confidence, love, and deep interpersonal understanding.” – Lizzy Lehman
