With her new album ‘BREACH’ out on 18th September via Dead Oceans, Fenne Lily is giving us the latest taste of what’s to come, releasing new single ‘Solipsism’.
“A lot of situations make me uncomfortable — some parties, most dates, every time I’m stoned in the supermarket,” says Fenne. “‘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.”
Accompanied by a vid directed by Tom Clover, Tom adds, “I asked Fenne what products she wanted to be and then worked backwards from there with the illustrators. Most of the references came from Asian Supermarket packaging - they are way more interesting. The most important thing was making sure that it reflected upon Fenne’s personality - there’s a bunch of details you might miss on the first watch!”
