Make Like New is the Dizzylilacs’ second endeavor, featuring fragrant melodies and impactful lyrics that should really make music fans of all styles of genres stand up and note. Eight dazzling tracks in all are contained within the breathtaking confines of Make Like New, commencing with the exhilarating refrains of And Security. Possessing the wondrous aspects of a hit single that will be bouncing away in your head for ages, And Security alone is enough to hook the listener into endless replays.
