Hana Lili has shared her new single Iconic, ahead of festival appearances at The Great Escape and Dot To Dot Festivals.

New single Iconic marks the follow up to Basement which saw the Welsh artist land Radio 1 Future Pop plays from Mollie King and Maia Beth.

The track finds Hana Lili putting an alt-pop/emo sound to a narrative about a contradictory relationship.  As she explains, “Iconic is about a boy where it felt like everything happened but at the same time nothing at all. It was an internal moment, and nothing more than that: never spoken about or acted on. The song poses a juxtaposition between the feeling of having a crush, and wondering if it was all in your head or if it actually really happened.”

Appropriately the visuals and artwork reflect the disconnection as she sits in a burning room, posing with her hands covering her ears.  “I’ve spent a lot of time developing the visuals for my last songs” she adds, “working on ideas and themes around fires, concepts about running away from the blaze, watching the friendly fires burning slowly in the basement. With ‘Iconic’ it was time to embrace the flames, the chaos of my imagination. Creating the artwork has been liberating, and I’ve really enjoyed the process. I always find a strong connection between the ideas of my lyrics and the visual that I put out with the song.”

The track was written and produced by Hana Lili with co-writer/co-producer Daniel Newcombe and cowriter Mark Vallance.
