Fenne Lily / Announces European Headline Tour
Fenne Lily today announces details of her first European headline tour.
Kicking off in Cardiff on 6th April, the UK leg of the tour will take in Southampton, Brighton, Manchester, Leeds, Glasgow, Birmingham, London, and a homecoming show for Fenne at in Bristol on 17th April before then moving onto mainland Europe. Full listings for all upcoming dates below. Having toured extensively as a solo artist supporting the likes of Marlon Williams, Lucy Rose, Marika Hackman, Charlie Cunningham, Novo Amor & Ed Tullet to name just a few, Fenne Lily recently assembled a band for her upcoming headline shows, mirroring the sonic progression of her recent singles to a fuller sound on record.
Recruiting players, Fenne turned to her Bristol contemporaries and will be joined for this tour on bass by Joe Sherrin of Slonk (“His music is built with little expectation and the results are strikingly beautiful” - NME, “ripples of sincerity weaving between every strum and beat” - The Line of Best Fit), whilst drums will come courtesy of the Invada signed Maya Indelicato.
Fenne’s Eurosonic showcases this week will be the first outing for this new band set up, before two sold-out warm-up shows in the coming weeks (The Islington, London 31st Jan & The Louisiana, Bristol 3rd Feb) with a showcase for Mahogany’s HORIZONS 2018 sandwiched in the middle (The King's Head Members Club, London 1st Feb). 2018 is off to a busy start.
Today’s touring news follows Fenne’s latest single ‘For A While’ which was released to acclaim at the close of 2017. The track offers a wonderfully wintery listen with a crescendo of warm analogue synths nestling alongside Fenne’s captivating vocals.
