The Angelic Lilly Carrons Takes Us Through Her New EP, 'And The Clouds Came Undone'

As the sun sets over the horizon, casting its warm hues across the sky, Lilly Carron's sophomore EP, 'And The Clouds Came Undone', emerges as a beacon of hope amidst the fading light. A seminal new release, the EP sees Lilly inviting listeners on a journey through the labyrinth of her mind, where honesty, optimism, and passion intertwine to form a captivating narrative of self-discovery and growth.

Armed with her enigmatic brand of powerful indie-pop, Carron crafts a coming-of-age soundtrack that resonates with the raw emotion and boundless energy of youth. A deeply personal and reflective piece, 'And The Clouds Came Undone' has had us enraptured since it's release early this month. Luckily, Lilly had the time to chat with us about the EP, walking us through it's formative moments and taking us deep behind the songs.

It’s so great to be able to catch up with you, thanks for taking the time to answer some of our questions. Let’s dig right into things, when did you first start making music?

"I’ve always loved to sing from a young age but I don’t think I started writing until my last year of highschool. I found it to be a perfect outlet for big life changes I had during that time, and eventually I built up the confidence to share what I was writing on Soundcloud. Now I’m releasing my second body of work which is so wild."

What inspired you to start your journey into music?

"My older sister! She was always playing guitar growing up and we would often sing together. She inspired me to express myself through music, and to this day continues to give me advice and feedback on songs I’m working on."

When it comes to the new EP, and your music as a whole, are there any influences that have defined your style?

"Hmmmm, I listen to artists like Lana del Rey, Julia Jacklin and Kate Bush. Their approach to
storytelling and songwriting has always inspired me in my writing. Another artist that continues to inspire me is Clairo, the way she uses harmonies in her music is something I find so magical. I have learnt so much from listening to her albums that I feel has seeped into this project."

How would you describe your sound at the moment, and on the EP?

"Each song on this project feels different. I loved removing the pressure of trying to recreate the last song we worked on. Some songs are tender and feel very floaty, and others are more pop and playful. Maybe dreamy indie/pop could be a way to describe it?"

Can you tell us a bit more about your latest release? 'And The Clouds Came Undone' is such a gorgeous and personal collection.

"I’ve been working on this release since around 2019 with Balu Brigada, it is a collection of moments and feelings from my early 20’s. The sound is eclectic; it has tender moments and anthemic ones too."

What was your songwriting process? How did it all come together?

"A few of these tracks I wrote myself and pieced together later with Henry and Pierre (Balu Brigada) who produced the project. Other times I’d go into the studio with a rough idea of what I needed to say and we’d start from there. It came together slowly, a lot of writing and experimenting until we found songs that felt right for the project."

What’s the most important thing for you when you’re writing a song - is it that personal touch or connection?

"It’s super important that I write with honesty and without judgment towards myself."

What’s next now the EP is out?

"Playing shows and writing more music!!! X x x X"

Do you have any parting words you would like to say to our audience?

"Thank you for chatting with me! I hope you all enjoy ‘And the Clouds Undone’ xxxx"
