Italian songstress LILI N fights neglect and finds independence in smoky new single “Spiritual Level.” A tale of asymmetrical love, the R&B-pop track touts Lili’s stellar songwriting skills and modern pop sensibilities. Singing, “And I wonder if you’ve had enough of me,” Lili immediately draws listeners into her world and takes them on a ride through her own self-discovery in a relationship where she gives 100% and he only gives 10%. It reminds listeners to value their own voices and not to give into those that don’t reciprocate the love they give. Matched with airy synths and trap inspired drums, “Spiritual Level” is a subtle, but alluring, R&B tune that’s perfect for finding solace in past relationships while dancing in your bedroom at 1am.
“Spiritual Level” is the first glimpse of what listeners can expect from LILI N’s upcoming album in 2018. It’s complex yet cohesive, showing off Lili’s pointed songwriting skills and ear for production that takes listeners through a congruent narrative. Like “Spiritual Level,” Lili’s album is an R&B infused pop record that connects strength and confidence with the tones of sad girl music.
This isn’t the first time we’ve heard from LILI N. Born and raised in the vibrantly creative Rome, she has been using her voice for as long as she can remember. As a child, she was selected to do Italian voice-overs for notable characters like Lilo in Lilo & Stitch, Lyra in The Golden Compass, and Lucy in The Chronicles of Narnia. After building a knack for recording herself, she quickly discovered Garage Band and her whole world changed. She naturally began writing songs and notes her romantic, cinematic upbringing as inspiration that helps her shape characters and overarching atmosphere in her music. Encouraged by her family and overwhelming need to create, she eventually landed at the acclaimed Berklee College of Music.
Although 4,000 miles away from Rome, LILI N felt right at home at Berklee. Her vivacious energy immediately drew in the likes of producers, songwriters, and managers who helped her kickstart her foray into the music industry. Lili collaborated with fellow Berklee students and began traveling through New York and Europe songwriting with the likes of Glashaus, Synematik, Perttu, Hitimpulse, Hymer and more.
Most notably, LILI N found herself working with Berlin electro-pop artist Dillistone. The two burst onto the scene in 2016 with their ever infectious collaboration “Rude,” which swiftly took off garnering 2.3M Spotify streams and 709K SoundCloud streams. They have since released singles “Forget About Me,” “Midas,” and “Don’t Know Why” to much acclaim.
Now settled in Los Angeles, LILI N still finds herself in the studio everyday. Taking time to build her sound from the ground up, Lili has been writing with producer heavyweights Composer (Christina Aguilera, Chris Brown, Trey Songz) and Daniel Dalexis (D.R.A.M., French Montana, Bibi Bourelly) for the upcoming, untitled project. She often finds strength in connecting with fellow songwriters and producers and prides herself on crafting a story, rather than just a song – making her the ultimate tool in the studio.
LILI N is thrilled to unleash “Spiritual Level” as the first taste of her new album and can’t wait to share what she’s been working on this past year. Keep an eye out for more from the budding songstress in the coming months.
