London-based singer/songwriter and storyteller Lily Head has earned acclaim for her remarkable ability to capture the intricacies of human emotions through music. Her passion for exploring contemporary issues in a relatable and compelling manner invites audiences to engage with her art on a deeply personal level. This connection has led to her music being featured on a Netflix show, earning nominations for the Golden Afro Music Awards, and close collaboration with Anderson Paak’s team for her new EP, ‘Cherry On The Cake.’
Lily’s unique blend of R&B, soul, and pop has rapidly propelled her to the forefront of her genre. Her sonic influences, drawn from artists like Olivia Dean, RAYE, Coco Jones, and Rimon, are evident in her music. Her 8-track debut EP, ‘Cherry On The Cake,’ presents the perfect embodiment of Lily Head’s artistry, with the sumptuous lead single ‘Table for Two’.
‘Table for Two‘ is a dreamy, velvety track that showcases Lily’s enchanting vocals and impeccable production. The song carries a melancholic yet soothing atmosphere, emphasising the paradox of having numerous options while struggling to find something genuine. This track, and the EP as a whole, beckon listeners to reflect on their own experiences and challenges in navigating the complexities of modern love. Lily Head provides a heartfelt soundtrack that resonates with the heart of these issues.
Regarding the EP as a whole, Lily shares, “I created this EP after understanding that there was a gap between how this generation feels and how we communicate… Everything is accessible, so we often fail to pay attention to anything anymore. I decided to create an EP around these themes, delving into the stories I’ve lived, heard, and witnessed. ‘Table for Two’ is the part where I explore and attempt to understand how it all works while still searching for something authentic.”
Lily Head also shares that “table for two is about navigating in this digital era without losing sight of authenticity”, and she masterfully tackles the complexities of modern relationships with her distinctive and soul-infused approach. ‘Table for Two’ serves as the perfect addition to your everyday playlist, blending a sultry mix of soul and pop with a commercial appeal that’s irresistibly infectious. Lily Head’s ‘Cherry On The Cake‘ EP promises to be a compelling journey through the intricacies of contemporary love, set to further propel this truly exciting artist to new heights.
