Melbs bb is the indie pop brainchild of Melbourne singer/songwriter/producer Erica Lilly. Featuring lush guitars, sweeping synths and soaring vocals, it’s hard not to get swept up in this dreamy combo. Erica’s lyrics are always earnest and tinged with humour which is exemplified in the quirky videos she releases alongside her music.
Here’s her dream rider:
- Water: I know, CRAZY! Sorry hydration is important and I don’t care how removed from reality we’re getting, I’m a thirsty bitch.
- Pool table: I’ve spent my whole life thinking I’m terrible at pool and will always be terrible at it. Turns out you just need to practice. Also turns out pool is really fun!
- Chess board: I’m not the best player in the world but I’m definitely better than my friends and regularly crush them. What better way to get ready for a show than some pre-game tears?
- Burrito bowls and corn chips: A nutritious and delicious gluten-free meal is essential before a gig.
- Ariana Grande: I feel like she’d know some warm-up techniques the rest of us don’t. Probably involves wizardry and maybe some kind of ritual sacrifice.
- Tanqueray, tonic water and lime: This is a RIDER. Of course there will be alcohol on it.
- My German Shepherd: I just miss her, okay? I mean she’s right next to me right now but if I’m playing this hypothetical gig, she probably wouldn’t be there and I’d miss her.
- The cast of the hit 90s sitcom The Nanny: I want to meet grandma Yetta.
- Personal Trainer: So I can get some abs happening before the performance. If the personal trainer is not available, then I’d like to request a makeup artist to draw some abs on.
- Genie in a lamp: Just make it happen. I’ve got wishes to make.
