Join us on Thursday 30th September for ORIGINALS with Lily Ahlberg.
Music times: 20:15-21:00/21:30-22:15
‘Call Me’ is the debut EP from London-based, Swedish singer-songwriter Lilly Ahlberg.
Bursting with ambition and a fresh twist of minimalist Scandi cool with indie folk pop influences, Lilly’s debut EP is drawn from moments of turbulence in her own life resulting in an EP that is honest, liberating, and 100% Lilly. Speaking on the new EP, Lilly said: “I’m so excited to finally be releasing my first EP! It is a collection of songs that I’ve written over my first few years of living in London. They represent my highs and lows of falling in love and finding myself through adolescence to adulthood.”
The EP includes the previously released smash hit and crisp pop statement, ‘Moonlight’ and leads with catchy and fun new single ‘Call Me’ which showcases Lilly’s sophisticated stance on pop. The new single is written by Lilly in collaboration with Justin Tranter (Lady Gaga, Ariane Grande, Linkin Park), produced by Jerker Hansson (Charli XCX, Panic! At the Disco, Zara Larsson) and mixed by Anthony Kilhoffer (Kanye West &winner of four Grammy awards).
Lilly Ahlberg was born in Italy, where she spent the first two years of her life before moving to England and then on to her native Sweden where she grew up in the IKEA-famed town of Älmhult where her parents worked. Described as somewhat of a nomad, Lilly has also lived and drawn influence from her time living in Norway, Australia and the UK, where she is currently based. A multi-instrumentalist, Lilly has performed since the age of 14, when her brother taught her to play guitar to Tracy Chapman’s ‘Fast Car’. This led to Lilly creating and uploading YouTube videos performing covers of famous tracks. Meant only for her friends at first, Lilly’s YouTube channel quickly gathered thousands of followers and likes from fans around the world and now boasts 117k followers and counting.
On ‘Call Me’ Lilly is ready to take centre stage as Sweden’s most exciting new export.
