Fenne Lily - Big Picture

A poignant glimpse into the uncertainty surrounding your whole life changing in front of you.

Fenne Lily - Big Picture
When the world went into lockdown, many new couples faced the dilemma of either not seeing each other for the foreseeable future, or taking the leap and quarantining together. Fenne Lily and her partner decided on the latter, and this relationship forms the core of third album ‘Big Picture’. Written in the midst of their time together, unlike her previous outputs, 2018’s ‘On Hold’ and 2020’s ‘BREACH’, ‘Big Picture’ soundtracks the ups and downs of a relationship in real time, with the added pressure of being confined to four walls as the world stops outside. “We held each other while everything burned around us,” she sings on the folk-tinged ‘Lights Light Up’, before admitting, “I guess we never really had that much in common, except the days, the nights and the cold”, while the delicate ‘In My Own Time’ finds her musing, “Sometimes I feel like I’m killing time here / Or maybe it’s killing me”. Throughout the record, Fenne provides a poignant glimpse into the uncertainty surrounding your whole life changing in front of you. As she sings on the stunning ‘Red Deer Day’: “I’m alright / Or I will be in time”.
