Let me introduce you to the new single “Heartstrings” from singer-songwriter Raquel Lily. “Heartstrings” details Raquel Lily’s idea of what it means to love. Sonically, the single features chilled relaxed beats, soulful vocals and infectious melodies.
The single is Amy Winehouse meets India Arie. Lily is known as a social media influencer with a dedicated following Twitch, over 250k plays on Spotify and has been featured in the likes of LADYGUNN, American Songwriter and Earmilk among others.
It’s a song I wrote about a mushroom trip I went on, and the introspection that occured on how much love and appreciation I have for someone; it was all so damn gushy and cute that I found it to be kind of disgusting and embarrassing. It was also on the heels of exploring concepts of polyamory in a long time relationship, realizing this love wasn’t just something that could go away with some other side fling.
