Lizzy Farrall about releasing her debut album during a pandemic, writing a cheesy duet, and a creepy live show intro: Interview

Sophie Dobschall May 8, 2020

Having shared the stage with the likes of Microwave, Can’t Swim and Seaway, a tour lined up in the US alongside Set It Off and a contract with Pure Noise Records, Lizzy Farrall’s debut LP promised to fill a void in the alternative pop-punk scene. With her EP “Barbados” though, Lizzy made it crystal clear she wasn’t going to let herself be put in the confines of a certain genre. With her debut LP “Bruise”, the talented singer continues on the path of experimenting with musical styles and sounds, collaborations, and lyrics that push the boundaries of what is comfortable to both sing or hear, producing incredibly catchy results in the process that marry poppy hooks and happy melodies with a dark, almost evil twist at times.

A fantastic first album from start to finish, “Bruise” was going to be the perfect soundtrack to our spring, with Lizzy to play sold out shows with Set It Off and getting a slot at the prestigious 2000trees festival later this summer. And then the coronavirus hit, cancelling much more than just our festival plans. Sigh.

I’m so very happy to share my interview with Lizzy as she recounts the ups and downs of the past few months in isolation, talking through some of her proudest moments on the album, being an introvert, and revealing what the live shows for promoting “Bruise” would have looked like (spoiler: it would have included bunny masks).
