Prepare to endure your feelings as Fenne Lily’s newest album, ‘Big Picture’, is here to prod your goosebumps and cleanse your soul. Having recently left behind Bristol for a move to New York, Lily returns with one of her strongest offerings to date.
Brimming with moments of gentle catharsis, ‘Big Picture’ tackles love and grief with an underlying sense of optimism. The wonderfully open and honest outlook is genuinely refreshing, producing a warm and comforting album that will have you pressing play repeatedly.
Every aspect of ‘Big Picture’ appears polished as each track flows with perfect pace. Small atmospheric touches have a significant impact as the clean simplicity of the album leaves the lyrics room to take precedence.
Coming to a close with ‘Half Finished’, the album ironically feels perfectly complete. Each track feels like it belongs together as a wonderfully tender piece of work.
‘Big Picture’ is a special listen from a brilliantly accomplished artist. From its thoughtful lyrics to its clean sound, Fenne Lily has taken us on an introspective journey and has created what has to be one of the most beautiful albums of the year.
