Through the lo-fi expansion sounds of electronic with the cracking beats of house, Lilith latest work is a mesmerizing offering of a future star.

Nadia Sheikh - IDWK (I Don't Wanna Know)
Spanish-English songwriter Nadia Sheikh takes our breath away with her most personal track to date throughout 'IDWK (I Don't Wanna Know)'.
Being her first release of 2021, after spending the past twelve months honing her craft, Sheikh continues to blend the abilities of indie-rock with pop but finds herself reaching the point of vulnerability that she's never reached before. Set on the basis of soothing vocal tones, crashed between the discordant instrumentals, Sheikh endures the personal problems she has brushed aside. “It's the first release of what I can say is my most personal and vulnerable work as a songwriter," said Sheikh. “‘IDWK’ is about that difficult conversation you don't want to have with yourself. Sometimes it's easier to ignore what we're going through internally than to face and process it, but once you do, things do get better.”
Amidst the traits of a human being, Nadia Sheikh artistry puts her at the forefront of ones to watch.
Hit musician Surf Mesa partners with the wonders of Fletcher and Josh Golden for the euphoric magic of 'Another Life'.
Intertwined with the individuality of each artist, 'Another Life' blooms under the intimate soundscapes of reminiscing the dancefloor. Through the juxtaposed yet addictive vocals tones of both Fletcher and Golden alongside the production of Surf Mesa, 'Another Life' is the work we didn't know we needed. Speaking of working alongside both, Surf Mesa added: "I’ve been a fan of FLETCHER since I first heard her record ‘Bitter ’with my friend Kito and josh Golden is arising star in the modern alternative space. I’m inspired and grateful to have two of my favourite vocalists collaborating with me on this track. Hearing them harmonize gives me the chills.”
With all three breaking the sphere of music, fans are in a treat for what the future holds.

Through the thrashed soundscapes of rhythm, weaved between the growling guitars, listeners find themselves in the heart of the band feelings towards our society. Speaking about the track, vocalist Leona Farrugia said: “The word ‘revolution’ has often been used in more grand ways throughout collective history, but ‘Catalyst’ started as more of a personal rediscovery, realising that every day is a ‘work in progress in order to wake up from the coma of tradition.”
Alongside their latest work, ĠENN are ready to rock the stages of their Liminal UK tour.

Telling the story of there's no question too big and no detail too small, Taylor spoke further of her influences and added: "I lost that curiosity for many years, and it came back to me in the last year.
