Fenne Lily signs to Dead Oceans, releases “Hypochondriac” (listen)
Bristol singer/songwriter and Aldous Harding collaborator Fenne Lily stirred up buzz after releasing her John Parish-co-produced 2018 debut album On Hold, and now she has inked a deal with Dead Oceans (Phoebe Bridgers, Destroyer, Kevin Morby, etc) and just released her first new single for the label, "Hypochondriac."
"The song’s theme was realised immediately; pressure to feel enough but not too much in a time of hyper connectivity, plus a personal reminder to be accountable for and have agency over the part of me that gravitates towards meltdown," she says. "It’s the first in a collection of tracks addressing myself as both the cause of and solution to my anxieties, as well as a shift in attention from predominantly relationship-based writing to a more self-reflective dialogue." It's a lovely, breezy and driving indie rock song with a slight folk tinge, and we recommend giving it a spin below.
Fenne also has an upcoming Europe/UK tour with Lucy Dacus and a festival festival appearances. All dates are listed below.
