Artist: Lily Frost
Song: “Cruel World (Nickel and Dime)”
Genre: Classic Pop, R&B, Soul
Melding classic pop and hip hop musical stylings with sixties mod style, Lily Frost has made herself a career on being a go-to artist for film and television syncs, while also garnering acclaim as an international touring artist, opening for artists ranging from Coldplay to Big Bad Voodoo Daddy.
With her fourteenth album, Retro-Moderne, Lily continues her evolution and showcases her style impeccably on first single “Cruel World (Nickel and Dime)”. Build around a rhythm of stand-up bass and a slinky keyboard line, Lily’s airy vocals linger along what could be an eerie James Bond theme, before a bouncy, bubblegum chorus bursts in, backed by some crusty surf guitar. It’s an effortlessly cool track that should be soundtracking your life, along with future TV shows and films.
