Zoey Lily
London-based singer/songwriter Zoey Lily has unveiled her brand new single More. This is a super catchy and smooth pop track showcasing Zoey Lily’s softly accented vocals, pensive songwriting and a keen ear for alternative-pop melodies. Stream it below!

Loving the way the song presents ticking beats and acoustic guitar under a glassy production with Zoey Lily’s undeniably catchy lyrics at the centre. At moments, the song falls into disparity; a woozy darkness around 2:10 and an even more stripped back closing fifteen seconds, providing contrast to the deceptively light pop textures. That’s the thing about Zoey Lily, you think you’ve figured this emerging talent out, but there’s many a hidden corridor to her musical repertoire.

Speaking about her first release of the year, Zoey Lily states:
I wrote this song about a guy I met a while ago who left the impression of being the super cool kid everyone admired and wanted to be like. When I got to know him closer I realised that he was struggling a lot to keep up with the image he created himself and actually felt very worthless and empty. In his own way he kept letting me down because he wasn’t able to let me in.
Zoey Lily (née Zoe Lily Lewis) may be a relative newcomer to the world of left-field pop, but for this 20-year-old talent, musicianship is no passing fancy. The Hackney-based artist first delved into creative expression at age 13 when she began playing piano and her first wide-eyed forays into songwriting. Later, at age 17, Zoey found herself drawn to her father’s acoustic Martin guitar, the instrument which she still writes most of her songs with today. 

Raised between the hectic metropolis of London and the rural serenity of southern French village, Les Mayons, Zoey can denote her creative instinct to a multicultural and multilingual upbringing. It’s one that also included international tours with her live music agent father (Joss Stone, Van Morrison) and the artistic influence of her mother, a former Parisian fashion designer. 

Zoey Lily has set out to become a highly independent and original songwriter, singer, multi-instrumentalist, composer, co-producer and dancer, as we will see in future music videos and live shows. Taking cues from a wide-range of essential artists, including Lana del Rey, Kendrick Lamar, Frank Ocean and Vince Staples.
