Sassy LA-based Australian force, Lili Kendall has released her sultry new single Lifetime, a cosmic love song to a young partner,
Lifetime is bound to catch listeners off-guard – it’s a surprisingly mature love song from this young artist, who has already reinvented herself several times throughout her short career. But Lili is fully formed on Lifetime; relaxed and in control, her unmistakable voice glides above world-class production from her collaborator Deaneaux. Lifetime is the most appropriate name for this slow-burning track – RnB and hiphop influences are sprinkled throughout, but there’s a cosmic force underlying that somehow places this song on the edge of this universe and the next.
Speaking about the track, Lili enthuses, “I wrote Lifetime when I first moved to LA in June. It’s about the chase that you and the other person are on at the start of a relationship. The back and forth, and lust, the want of each other. It’s also about being ride or die for that one person because you know that you have been lovers in previous lifetimes, and it is something worth fighting for.”
Lili has settled into the creative LA lifestyle without a hitch, and is currently putting the finishing touches on her new EP. “My EP is finished and we’re in the final stages of mixing and mastering, as well as making some amazing visuals for each song,” she says. “I am home in Australia for the holidays and will be heading to Sydney and Melbourne for work, I’m so excited to be back on home soil and get into the studio with some local creatives.”
MY FAVOURITE BRISBANE VENUES – LILI KENDALL
A cute little bar in the Fortitude Valley that have live jazz nights. My friends and I used to sneak into here in high school to listen to the music and get drunk… one of the first places I ever went out to and always a vibe.
Black Bear Lodge
I used to play Black Bear all the time when I lived in Brisbane. One of my favourite places to play live still to this date – tucked away above the rest of the valley, it’s intimate and cozy. It also helps that Ed is a boss ass sound man who never lets me down. The best energy every single time I have played.
38 Berwick Street
Home to my high school Music Industry College, it’s also an all ages music venue for new up and coming artists and band to showcase their music. I may be bias from sentimentality, but I always end up here when I’m back home.
I had my first big show here on the night of my high school graduation, opening for Stonefield, and again honoring David Bowie last year. One of the best times on stage I have ever had was performing Life on Mars with a band full of high school students from the same school I graduated from 2 years previous. Perspective is a crazy thing. Make sure to go have a beer in the outdoor garden and watch a show here if you are ever in Brisbane.
