Los Angeles singer/songwriter Lily Kershaw shares a new track, “Always & Forever,” from her upcoming sophomore album Arcadia, out November 15th.  On “Always and Forever,” Lily uses the metaphor of a bad relationship to explore her reservations around the concept of time and infinity. While she's primarily known as a folk-pop artist, Lily consistently pushes the limitations of that label. Originally written as a guitar-based tune with her good friend, actress Emma Roberts, Lily instinctively decided to add synth, creating an 80s sonic texture without succumbing to any of the tropes found in today's new wave nostalgia.
