NYC rising alt-pop artist Lily Hain releases debut album 'Fatal Flaws'

“Songwriting has always been a form of therapy for me"

Lily Hain captures the all-too-relatable feelings of adolescent angst, romantic frustration and mental health on her first full-length album, 'Fatal Flaws'.

Raised in North Carolina but now based in New York City, Lily Hain has been releasing music since 2020. Originally sharing delicate, reflective pop singles, her sound took a more rock-leaning turn last year with the release of 'Spicy'.

The first track to be have been released from 'Fatal Flaws', 'Spicy' upheld Lily's ruminative style of songwriting while juxtaposing angelic layered harmonies with gravelly guitar chords. Providing an edgier, alt-rock side to Lily's artistry, she then pared it back with the confessional 'Wrapped Up' and 'Internalize', tracks with simple bass lines and crystalline vocals.

On 'just another party', Lily channels the nostalgic early 00s pop/rock era as she sings of the joy of skipping parties to stay at home.

Continuing the rollout of the album into 2024, Lily shared 'OH GOD', written about her move to New York and equating her expectations of the city with the reality.

With the release of 'Fatal Flaws', Lily shares two new singles, slow and sexy 'The Chase', and moody, standout track 'Ursula'. The first song Lily wrote for the album and the first she ever wrote with her electric guitar, it holds a special place in her heart for birthing her departure into a more alt sound.

“Songwriting has always been a form of therapy for me and although releasing music, especially a project like this, can be daunting and vulnerable, it’s always very empowering to share my truth and where I am in life,” Lily says. “This album was incredibly cathartic for me to make and I hope that other people can find some peace and meaning in it too.”
