Album Review: "Something" Single by Lillimure
Lillimure — the emerging singer/songwriter from New York’s Westchester county — is just twenty years old, but already makes music that comes across as seasoned and professional. Her newly released track called “Something” is well produced, nicely arranged, and expertly performed. Drawing you in from the start, the faint sounds of what appear to be birds flying over the ocean are accompanied by equally distant sounds of traffic, which serve as a pleasant backdrop to her soft yet raspy voice.
The calm intro allows Lillimure’s vocals to take center stage and ease the listener into a harmonious and pleasant song. The fact that her lyrical content is relatable adds to the overall appeal and feel of the track. According to the press release for her upcoming album, which is set to drop next month (June, 2019), Lillimure had been writing and performing songs since she was a child, but “never considered songwriting her career path until a life-altering gymnastics injury.” After tearing a ligament in her wrist, she discovered that making music was a way for her to deal with her trauma.
According to the artist:
"This song was inspired by a series of events that made me feel helpless. It's about finding what resonates with you the most to push through and knowing that there is an educational value to every situation. I hope this song can break the stigma about success — for every notable win, there are more unseen 'losses' and true success comes from overcoming the obstacles you face to do what you love."
The track was released on March 19th and features Sam Caldwell on keys, Henry Mermer on drums, Jason Robbins on bass, and Dawson Abdurahman on the guitar. Produced by Jake Lasz, “Something” is the second single the singer has released from her upcoming album. The folk pop sound of her music will likely appeal to fans of Billie Eilish, Marian Hill, and Bishop Briggs. Because Lillimure’s sound is laid back, relaxing, and thoughtful, it’s very likely going to attract the attention of a wide range of audiences. Check out more from Lillimure here.
