Fenne Lily Unveils Video for New Song ‘Solipsism’

    Fenne Lily has unveiled a new song titled ‘Solipsism’, taken from her upcoming sophomore album BREACH. It arrives with an accompanying music video directed by Tom Clover and produced by the non-profit Film Co. Check it out below.

    “A lot of situations make me uncomfortable — some parties, most dates, every time I’m stoned in the supermarket,” Lily said in a statement. ““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 realize you’ll never live apart from someone you sometimes hate. Dad, if you’re reading this you killed it as shopper number 2.”

    Speaking about shooting the video, Clover explained: “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!”

    BREACH is out September 18 via Dead Oceans. Previously, the singer-songwriter shared the singles ‘Berlin’ and ‘Alapathy’.
