The latest edition in the WFMO X Music Savage Show “Song of the Week” spotlight shines on the beautiful new single, “ Hypochondriac,” from the UK’s Fenne Lily. This is the second time we have focused on the Bristol-based musician. Almost two years ago to the day Lily was featured as a SOTW for the wonderful single “On Hold”

“Hypochondriac” is the first new music since her brilliant debut album, On Hold, which was self released on April 6th, 2018. Speaking about the track Lily states “The song’s theme was realized immediately; pressure to feel enough but not too much in a time of hyper connectivity, plus a personal reminder to be accountable for and have agency over the part of me that gravitates towards meltdown,” says Fenne. “It’s the first in a collection of tracks addressing myself as both the cause of and solution to my anxieties, as well as a shift in attention from predominantly relationship-based writing to a more self-reflective dialogue.”

“Hypochondriac” takes on the subject of being open and honest with yourself in times of struggle and finding truth in adversity. The talented musician is not afraid to wear her heart on her sleeve and remind us, the listeners, that in the end music makes everything better.
