American Songwriter recently hosted the premiere of “Aquamarine,” the first song Alex Lilly wrote for her new bundle Love In Three Colors.
Lilly told the site that the track is about “unadulterated joy. That vivid color return from a long period of drabness and sadness. It feels equal parts Sesame Street and the song you play at the end of the night at a dance party to get everyone to leave. There’s a sincere quality that reminds me of The Buggles or Cyndi Lauper.” American Songwriter contends that the Lauper comparison is apt, writing that it “instills an immediate vintage electronica vibe that would likely be right at home in parts of Cyndi Lauper’s dance-pop repertoire.” Read the full piece here, and get “Aquamarine” on your airwaves.
