"Bougainvillea Taxi" is a raw glimpse at the radical climb one takes to fulfill their artistic vision. Genetti spins this idea of comfort in the reality that struggling to make art/survive is a far departure from the save haven of our childhood daydreams. Having driven for Lyft many nights to survive—even spending some in the car to sleep—allows this new single to provide a more intimate light into the emerging bedroom producer-turned artist.
"Out of Your Mind" has a haunting, melancholic Dance groove that evokes both the '80s and Contemporary Electro-R&B. Genetti's second single feels like the shell of a Bieber Pop banger matched with the lyrical vulnerability of a bedtime story. It's hypnotic, fluid and atmospherically sexy, complete with hooks that'll leave the listener bobbing along to the undertow of snaps, analog drum machines, velvety synth bass and reverb-laden bliss.
Lily Kershaw is a folk-pop singer/songwriter with a knack for writing melodic and narrative songs that aren't afraid to move into deeper territory than the typical pop song. After landing a couple of high-profile television placements, she released her debut album in 2013. A follow-up album, Arcadia, arrived in 2019.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, Kershaw first began working as an actress, taking small television roles at a young age. Concurrent to her acting career, she was also playing guitar and honing her craft as a songwriter. Her public breakthrough as a musician came when one of her songs, "As It Seems," was featured in the season seven finale of the popular CBS television series Criminal Minds in 2012. A second song, "Ashes Like Snow," was again featured prominently in the eighth season finale of the show a year later, which led to Kershaw signing a recording contract with Nettwerk Records. Her debut album, Midnight in the Garden, appeared in the fall of 2013. In early 2018, Kershaw released a string of singles, "Party Meds," "Another," and "All of the Love in the World," ahead of the arrival of the Lost Angeles EP, which arrived later that May, again via Nettwerk. The EP represented a shift toward a lusher pop-driven sound which she further pursued on her sophomore album, Arcadia, in 2019. ~ Steve Leggett, Rovi
