Press Kit

Lily Bentley is a singer and songwriter from South  London.

Drawing from traditional folk, goth and art rock, her songs seek to find the human in the supernatural and the extraordinary in the everyday.

Her debut album, Norwood Gothic (2019) received positive attention from BBC Radio 6 and other stations around the world.

Her new album, Ways of Calling, explores the sea as a medium for connection: whether between people (Letters to Baffin Bay), between worlds (Land & Sea), or between a Cold War submarine and the strange beings that live in the deep (Sonar).

Ways of Calling is available from the 31st of March 2022 on CD, digital download and streaming.
