Fenne Lily - "Solipsism"

It's a fair statement that we're becoming more and more obsessed with Fenne Lily's music the closer we get to next month's release of BREACH. Luckily, there's a new single for us to obsess over. "Solipsism" is a fuzzed out song, landing somewhere between grunge and dream pop. It's heavier than what we've previously heard from Lily, but it still has just the slightest of hints of pop that we expect from her. It's this combination of skirting the indie rock and indie pop worlds that we're truly loving from Lily, and we can't wait to hear more from her. 

Fenne Lily says of the video for "Solipsism": 

"A lot of situations make me uncomfortable — some parties, most dates, every time I’m stoned in the supermarket. Solipsism’ is a song about being comfortable with being uncomfortable and the freedom that comes with that. If you feel weird for long enough it becomes normal, and feeling anything is better than feeling nothing. I wanted this video to be a reflection of the scary thought that I’ll have to live with myself forever. It’s surreal to realise you’ll never live apart from someone you sometimes hate. Dad, if you’re reading this you killed it as shopper number 2.

You can watch the video for Solipsism below. BREACH, the upcoming album from Fenne Lily, will be out September 18 on Dead Oceans. You can pre-order a copy here.
