Fenne Lilly, jeune Anglaise d’une vingtaine d’années, a déjà tout d’une grande artiste. Originaire de Bristol, elle compose et enregistre son premier album, On Hold, avec l’aide du légendaire producteur John Parish et de son ami de longue date, le musicien Tamu Massif. Elle écrit ses divers morceaux entre ses 15 et 20 ans, tout en assurant la première partie d’Aldous Harding, Charlie Cunningham ou Marlon Williams. Accompagnée de sa guitare et de sa voix pure, Fenne nous délivre un indie folk nostalgique qui nous rappelle celui de Marika Hackman ou Laura Marling. Elle est capable de poser des mots sur l’imprononçable avec une simplicité et honnêteté incomparable, pour nous offrir un témoignage bouleversant. Fenne Lily sortira son second album Breach le 18 septembre 2020 !

In a time of over-production and over complication, Fenne Lily brings a rawness and open honesty to the equation which is both refreshing and compelling in equal measure.

Fenne wrote and recorded the material that would form her debut album ‘On Hold’ between the ages of 15 and 20, while touring the continent with and lending her dulcet tones to the releases of rising alt-stars such as Aldous Harding, Charlie Cunningham, and Marlon Williams. Leaving school to spend her formative teenage years on the road, Fenne walked an uncertain path, playing truant from art college to immerse herself in a life of self-taught musicianship.

Bristol-based musician Fenne Lily announces BREACH, her second album and first for Dead Oceans, out September 18th 2020. It presents a newly upbeat and urgent streak to her songwriting.Fenne wrote BREACH during a period of self-enforced isolation pre-COVID, after a disjointed experience of touring Europe, followed by a month alone in Berlin. The album deals largely with « loneliness, and trying to work out the difference between being alone and being lonely. » Although its subject matter is solitude, it sounds bigger and more intricate than anything Fenne previously released. She recorded with producer Brian Deck at Chicago’s Narwhal Studios, with further work at Electrical Audio with Steve Albini who helped flesh out her sound with vast, rich guitars.
