The latest from Lily Konigsberg is an oddball little pop song. "Proud Home" sounds a lot like modern day alt-pop. It's light, and fun, and seems like a killer song to have your own little dance to. But, the song is also filled with mid-90's style power pop alt-rock guitar. It's that weird crunchy guitar that seems just slightly off tune that basically soundtracked my college years. "Proud Home" is decidedly more pop than rock, but there is a lot here for aged 90's hipsters to love.
Lily Konigsberg explains the inspiration of her new song (which sonically explains everything):
"This song was inspired by a fictional story I made up in my dreams about my mom being Stacy's mom. It's a song dedicated to Adam Schlesinger of Fountains of Wayne, who passed away from Covid at the very beginning of the pandemic. I have always loved Stacy’s Mom so much and after his death, realized he wrote a ton of his songs that I really love. Appreciation for a pop ghostwriter."
