Following the release of her debut EP ‘Systems Fail’, which was released last year to rave reviews from fans and critics alike, 18-year old indie / bedroom pop upriser LILAC SPIRIT is back with her brand new single and first offering of 2020 titled ‘Nothing Is Real’.
Unveiled alongside a fitting music video, shot in Kyiv, Ukraine, and directed by burgeoning filmmaker, photographer and creative designer Ubik Litvin (Vogue, Marie Claire, VIVA), ‘Nothing Is Real’ will serve as the precursor for her upcoming debut album, which is scheduled for release this autumn.
Speaking about how ‘Nothing Is Real’ came about, Ukraine-born Lilac Spirit says, “The chorus came to my mind about three years ago, but with absolutely different lyrics, but when I found this song unfinished a year later, I was dealing with some inner conflicts. It didn’t take me long to think of the new lyrics, because they were just my mind’s reflections that were perfectly matching the melody. This song is a reality check for me, because neither my past nor my future is real. We are just stuck there with our present, which is, in fact, momentary. Yesterday is a memory, and tomorrow is unknown, today is fleeting. So is anything even real? Yes or no, why should it matter anyway?”
