Hailing originally from Dorset, 19 year old songstress Fenne Lily has truly mastered the craft of making beautifully dainty alt-folk numbers, with a real understated elegance that belies her youth.

Lily’s first single ‘Top to Toe‘ is a subtle masterpiece, and is both thought-provoking and tranquil. Instrumentation on the track is intentionally bare, with only one swooping acoustic guitar present, making room for Lily’s confessional, heartfelt lyrics and dreamlike vocals, reminiscent of those of Julia Stone and Laura Marling.

Despite it’s relatively short lifespan, ‘Top to Toe‘ has gained mass critical acclaim since its release earlier this year, and has been championed by BBC Radio’s Huw Stephens and Lauren Laverne, among many others.

With her new single in tow, Fenne Lily is eagerly approaching the summer, as she gears up to perform an extensive array of notable festivals, such as Dot to Dot and The Great Escape. It’s definitely worth keeping your ear to the ground for this one…
