Fenne Lily’s work is subtle but impactful. Her words rise and fall with a weight of emotional sincerity. Her voice exchanges gritty, hushed, supple caresses with pitch-perfect feathery highs. Delivering lyrics of articulate observation and lived understanding, Lily is one of those artists that once witnessed can’t be forgotten or unheard.
Bristol songwriter Fenne Lily, the rising queen of relatable sad ballads has published her debut album: ‘On Hold.’
The Arabic word habibi means “my love,” an apt descriptor for Rahill Jamalifard’s feelings about her Iranian upbringing and the music she creates. Jamalifard is the frontwoman for Habibi, the Brooklyn-based band that mixes Detroit garage rock with girl group harmonies and surf guitar.
New York’s Habibi hypnotise on ‘Come My Habibi’, their new single, and give us the lowdown on their hot sauce-fuelled second album.
Ex Hex, the DC power trio comprised of Mary Timony, Betsy Wright, and Laura Harris, have announced a new album, their first since the band’s 2014 breakthrough, Rips. Called It’s Real, the LP is due for release on March 22nd via Merge Records.
Described as “a reaction to the blown-out aesthetic of Rips,” It’s Real embraces layered vocal harmonies, art rock flourishes, and drawn-out codas that emphasize the band’s loud, glammy riffs. The trio re-teamed with Rips producer Jonah Takagi for the album, which is built upon “dozens” of guitar amps, including a bygone Rockman.
If you think about four girls from Nagoya dressed in loud colours and playing jaggedy, raucous pop-rock, you will probably come up with the adjective “kawaii”, which is really useful to describe the most coloristic Japanese cultural manifestations. But in the case of CHAI, it may be a better idea to put your cute faces and huge eyes to one side: Mana, Kana and Yuna’s charisma lies in the energetic optimism with which they flaunt their condition of weirdos, blasting out songs like small bullets of noise for the glory of body hair, human imperfections and gyozas (their avowed only true love).
