Lenii (Ellen Murphy) is a singer, songwriter, music producer and multi instrumentalist from Cork, Ireland. A vegetarian who eats duck on her birthday.
She just released her brand new single Cereal, taken from the forthcoming EP IN ALL FAIRNESS, due for release this year.
The song sounds so good. I like the quirky melodies. Besides, the vocals are stunning. Furthermore, I am also a fan of the subtle harmonies and solid hooks.
On the single, LENII says: ”Cereal is a standing-up-for-myself song (something Iʼve never been very good at). Basically I had recently broken up with my boyfriend, who I was with for over 2 years, and it was the worst thing Iʼve ever experienced. Almost immediately, at a time when I was at my most vulnerable, a close friend swooped in thinking I was up for grabs (I know this sounds like such teenage drama). I was so angry that my own feelings were totally disregarded and I was made feel like an object that could be passed around. I know most girls can probably relate to this in someway. I thought about how, in my experience, when guys hit on girls the line “I have a boyfriend” is always more concrete than “Iʼm not interested” and the idea is that youʼre not unavailable enough until you ‘belongʼ to someone else. Which is just dumb.”
Lenii is a real star, she always delivers. Cereal deserves all the attention. Start streaming it as soon as possible!
