December 2018 (Los Angeles, CA) - Up-and-coming ‘anti-pop’ artist TILLIE releases “faith”, the first single from her upcoming EP due out in the Spring of 2019. Following the buzz of her breakout EP that landed her on the Vans Warped Tour, the Annie Mac show on BBC Radio 1, and on the popular video game Rock Band, “faith” arrives as the mark of a new era. Produced by tiLLie and Benjamin Greenspan, “faith” is an infectious and empowering anthem that inspires hope in abuse survivors seeking justice in the era of “Me Too” - even if the system fails: “You know damn well that I could ruin you / But if they don’t believe me, I can count on you. / Cause I got faith, you’ll do it to yourself / And you’ll do it better than anybody else / I got faith.”
“I wrote my new single ‘faith’ as a way of transcending a dark chapter of my life. After leaving the abusive relationship detailed in my previous EP, the trauma still haunted me and at times, justice felt damn near impossible. Faith is not about giving up the plight for justice, but remaining confident in the fact that shitty people will eventually show their true colors and bring upon themselves the karma they deserve. “ - tiLLie
The track swings back and forth from a moody reflection with lyrics that sound as if you’ve stolen a page straight from her diary to a cathartic, high-energy chorus that makes you want to chant alongside your baddest of girl gangs. Illuminating the emotional rollercoaster we all feel post-break up, the track leaves you itching to jump on your bed for one big ‘f*ck you’ dance party.
On the outside, TILLIE is the “alt-spice" of the new generation and founder of ‘the glitter gang’ but beneath the sparkly shell is a deep-rooted message that screams self-empowerment and redemption. Unafraid to expose her deepest heartache and realest struggles, she aspires to remind her listeners that “the idiosyncrasies that pulse throughout all of our lives are the very things that bond us.They are the reminders that we are in this together.”
“Faith” follows the release of “Hungover on a Feeling”, tiLLie’s last single that was premiered by The Fader Magazine and followed by an artist feature from Consequence of Sound and the shoe company VANS in August. She was also recently featured in ALTERNATIVE PRESS magazine (print) as one of ’10 Artists To Detonate Your Complacency in 2019”. In support of releasing her single “Faith”, tiLLie will close off the year by supporting DREAMERS at the Observatory in Santa Ana, CA on Dec. 18th. Recently having signed to the artist agency group ICM, she will also be announcing a six week long tour across the US and Canada in support of Sony’s recent signing, Cherry Pools, beginning March of 2019. DATES TBA.
