Rising pop talent Lily Denning (Wildlife Management – Arctic Monkeys, Miles Kane, Royal Blood) , has today shared her debut EP ‘Wouldn’t It Be Nice (26th March) on The Project Records via AWAL’.
The EP contains three new tracks, exploring the ups and downs of love and life, told through Lily’s experiences. Each song effortlessly contains catchy melodies, compelling lyrical hooks and impressive production, ultimately creating a sonically cohesive trio of songs.
‘Wouldn’t It Be Nice’ serves as the lead single, and sees Lily fed up and unapologetic, as the lyrics confront the issues women face when being harassed and approached whilst walking down the street. Also on the EP is ‘Talk That Talk’, a relatable track venting the frustration of being ignored over text, and ‘You Should Love Me’ – a synth-driven track about unrequited love.
Speaking about the EP and lead single, Lily says:
“The ‘Wouldn’t It Be Nice’ EP is my take on the world as a 21 year old woman living in the 21st century. It goes from relationship failures to everyday struggles and I want people to relate to these songs. The songs are all based on honest, real life experiences that I know many people go through and I hope it reaches out and connects with my audience.”
“‘Wouldn’t It Be Nice’ is a song I wrote 6 months ago after being harassed when walking alone in London. I’ve always wanted to speak out about this situation that happens to too many people and how it shouldn’t be tolerated in today’s society. I want the song to raise awareness and to keep the conversations going about how people shouldn’t be made to feel unsafe on our own streets and how we can collectively change that”
Hailing from Kent, Lily is an exciting singer and songwriter, who has been honing her craft over the years with four singles‘ ‘Armageddon’, ‘Me Myself & I’, ‘Spit It Out’ and ‘Play His Heart’. Since emerging onto the music scene, Lily has already garnered support from music tastemakers including Billboard, CLASH, Tmrw, and more. In 2019, she received notable praise from BBC Introducing, as well as a vocal feature on Mahalo and DMLT’s track ‘So Cold’ which boasts 15m + worldwide streams to date.
With her new EP out today, Lily is taking 2021 in her stride, and continues to be a serious artist to watch out for.
