Fenne Lily Shares New Single, “To Be A Woman Pt. 2”

Posted on 04/29/2020

 23-year-old Bristol musician Fenne Lily releases a new standalone single, “To Be A Woman Pt. 2,” her second song for Dead Oceans. Following the breezy “Hypochondriac,” “To Be A Woman Pt. 2” bounds with restlessness, an urge to start anew. Over a pacing drum beat and angsty, driving arpeggios, she maps the sound of knowing you’re in the wrong company. Throughout, Fenne inverts her more-often straightforward confessional style. Now the heartbreak is a background to her own internal monologue, advising against the pitfalls of her past.

Usually when writing about rage, most of the initial anger I feel towards the person or situation becomes diluted through the recording process, but this song was different. ‘To Be a Woman Pt. 2’ is a call to arms,” says Fenne. “It’s raw and furious, coming from a place of frustration and pain born from a loss of control and a breach of trust. The result of a manipulative relationship, it’s both a retaliation against subordination and a reclamation of power.

While “To Be A Woman Pt. 2” and “Hypochondriac” are introductions for most, Fenne’s self-released debut album, 2018’s On Hold, has stuck with many, quietly going viral, garnering play-after-play on streaming services. Fenne first took North American stages when she opened for Lucy Dacus and Andy Shauf. This August, Fenne makes her stateside return supporting Waxahatchee across the midwest. Then, she will tour across the United Kingdom and Europe.
