Indie Pop Mixtape 3
Artist: Lily Elise
Song: Palm Trees
Why? Her voice is one of the most beautiful sounds you will ever listen, specially as she glides softly through the melody of “Palm Trees” and she connects lyrics with music hypnotizing us – it’s also an honest and true expression of emotions and feelings and I am personally a big fan of that touch in her music and the R&B glimpses in her voice are a marvel to hear.
