Having quickly established themselves on the London music scene thanks to their affable harmonies and unique songwriting charm, indie pop duo Lilypads are looking to cement their status as one of the capital’s most exciting rising acts with the release of their debut single ‘Ode To You’.
The track is packed full of the personality and allure that the Future Icon competition winners are growing known for, boasting laid-back, intricately crafted melodies that feel distinctive and fresh while having a familiar, nostalgic feel.
The pleasant, soothing aesthetic that is captured on ‘Ode To You’ comes not only through its sound but also through its narrative, with the band using their debut single as a token of gratitude to the people who have helped them out and lifted them up when they were down. Everything about the release feels like a warm comfort blanket, a glowing showcase of Lilypads and their endearing, thoughtful approach to songwriting.
Their distinctive style and burgeoning reputation have already seen the band fast tracked to play at some of London's iconic venues, headlining The Old Queen's Head and playing to sell-out crowds at The 02 Academy Islington. The sky looks to be the limit for Lilypads and their sound and we could be looking back on this track as where it all started.
