IT’S VIBE O CLOCK ON FRIDAY HAVE YOU HUGGED YOUR FAVORITE BAD BITCHES AND WISHED THEM A HAPPY INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY YET!!!?!?!?!?!?!?

Today marks the release of glitter gang leader tiLLie’s LOUD MOUTH EP and y’all…. *chef’s kiss*. This was a match made in New Music Friday heaven for it to be dropping today. As we saw from the first taste of the EP, “faith”, tiLLie intends to stand defiantly in her truth from here on out and if you can’t accept that then you can see your way to the door. This is a sentiment that she does not shy away from for a single second throughout the EP, with tracks like “mood swings” and title track “loud mouth” showcasing different aspects of her personality.

And then there’s "whole wide world” closing out the EP. The sheer amount of vulnerability and relatability… y’all I am so deeply grateful we’re finally getting to this place in music where women feel empowered to make songs like this. It’s songs like “whole wide world” that make me sit and think about the girls and young women who are able to enter the music industry as musicians, producers, engineers, publishers, songwriters, journalists, publicists, tour managers, or whatever facet of the industry they so desire knowing that those of us already here have been working so hard to make sure they don’t have to feel the way that tiLLie and the rest of us have all of our lives.

When I first started working in music I was so frustrated that I wasn’t born a man because it felt like it was going to be impossible to make any headway otherwise. These days I couldn’t be more proud to be a woman in music, not because I think women are necessarily better than men, but because I know that as a human person I have a lot to contribute and a good deal of that is informed by being a woman human person. Feeling like you have permission to take up space and being treated as a person of equal, not lesser, value, is something everyone deserves. I’m excited to see how love, empathy, and compassion continues to grow in the world as we continue to make space for women in music and all the other industries of the world.

tiLLie is back and she’s got some goodies for us! ✨

After releasing her infectious karma-laden anthem, “faith”, the shimmering songstress has unveiled not only the accompanying music video, but also news that she will be releasing her sophomore EP LOUD MOUTH on March 8th.

The video features our heroine cathartically dancing around in her bedroom before taking to the streets. Inspired by an actual evening in her own bedroom, she revealed the inspiration behind the video in a recent interview with Galore,

"I had just gotten home and was listening to the demo as I was washing my face and suddenly I just felt like I was a teenager in my bedroom again listening to a song that was written just for me. I started jumping on my bed and just had this cathartic dance party. So, the video basically became a recreation of that with the help of the ever so talented Erik Rojas. It represents what I hoped this song would feel like to whoever hears it and is going through the emotional rollercoaster of a bad break up or healing from abuse. There’s no endorphin boost quite like carefree dancing through all your feelings. I’ve done it since i was a kid and will do it till the day i can’t dance no more. It gives me a release like no other."

I love the symbolism of her working through her frustration while in her bedroom before hitting the streets celebrating the power that she’s reclaimed.

[SONG OF THE DAY] tiLLie - "faith"
tiLLie 2019

VIBE O’CLOCK ON FRIDAYYYYYY FAM!!!!! WE THROWIN A POSI PARTY TODAYYYYYY!

I dunno about you, but I could use some posi-pop something fierce today. It has been a WEEK.

Enter: Los Angeles power pop songstress tiLLe and her brand new single, “faith”, which dropped this very day. “faith” is the lead single form her forthcoming EP, which will be dropping later this spring. Within the first 15 seconds of pressing play on this you’ll be able to tell why I was in love with this instantly, but actually it goes a lot deeper than just the infectious blend of sultry vocals and infectious bubblegum pop production. tiLLie is fam because she handles her dark and twisty shit the way I prefer to whenever possible: face it head on, dump a mountain of glitter on it, and dance on.

As she explained, “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.”

Oh girl, I FEEL YOU SO HARD ON THIS.

She went on, “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. “

We love herrrrrrr!!!!! 😭✨😭✨😭✨😭✨

If you could use a #posiparty #irl, you’re in luck. Starting in March tiLLie will be hitting on the road supporting Cherry Pools. The more body glitter for these shows, the better! (If you’re in NYC and happen to forget, don’t worry, I gotchu ✨😎)
