Track Of The Week – Fenne Lily – Solipsism

0

It’s been quite a while since I blogged “properly” here aside from playlists and podcasts, but I didn’t want to miss out on sharing one of my favourite artists latest releases. 

 Bristol-based Fenne Lily will unveil her wonderful second album BREACH next month ( September 2020) and her first for Dead OceansI suspect it might be one of my favourite albums of 2020. The latest single from said album is the propulsive, dreamlike “Solipsism” which manages to capture the vague sense of paranoia and yet also the fascination of being slightly stoned in a supermarket. The video really encapsulates that atmosphere, and watch out for some surreal product placement. 

 Of the tune, Lily says “”Solipsism” is a song about being comfortable with being uncomfortable and the freedom that comes with that. If you feel weird for long enough it becomes normal, and feeling anything is better than feeling nothing. I wanted this video to be a reflection of the scary thought that I’ll have to live with myself forever. It’s surreal to realise you’ll never live apart from someone you sometimes hate.”
