future release under the radar

News of Fenne Lily’s debut album

Raised in the wilds of rural Dorset to punk and Queen-loving parents, Fenne Lily first picked up the guitar aged 15. Just one year later and she’d written the delicate but powerful ‘Top To Toe’, which deftly tackled social anxiety over softly picked guitar; a song about bleak adolescence that almost everyone could relate to. Self-released, ‘Top To Toe’ saw the young unknown attract global attention for her sublime songwriting ability and sharp emotional intelligence, as well as her gifted way with melody.
Drawing comparisons to the likes of Laura Marling as well as the swooning sound of Angel Olsen, Sharon Van Etten and underground 1960s psychedelic greats like Linda Perhacs, ‘Top To Toe’ has since amassed a staggering 19 million streams on Spotify alone, a feat not many young artists can achieve off the back of the first song they’ve ever written.
But if you’re after a record full of soft, sweetly packaged ballads, then you’ve come to the wrong place, On Hold is testimony that Fenne Lily is much more than your typical acoustic songwriter. “I don’t want to be a folk singer, even though that’s what comes easy to me,” she states. “I don’t want to disappoint the people who liked that ‘Top To Toe’, but I don’t want to become pigeonholed.”
Lily’s debut album On Hold is available from 6th March, with the track listing as follows:
1. Car Park
2. Three Oh Nine
3. What’s Good
4. The Hand You Deal
5. More Than You Know
6. On Hold
7. Top To Toe
8. Bud

10. For A While
11. Car Park (Overflow)
