Indianapolis-based folk-pop duo Lily & Madeleine unleash a new dreamy single “Come To Me”
Plus, the pair will hit the road this summer with stops in Indiana, South Haven, MI, and Nashville, TN and tickets are on sale now. Later this year, the pair is poised to share new music and much more information to come.
Originally released in 2013, “Come to Me” has over 50 million streams across platforms and has become an all-time fan favorite. Ten years later, Lily & Madeleine have teamed up with longtime friend and creative partner Shannon Hayden to put their growth and evolution as artists and as people on full display. On this new version, producer and multi-instrumentalist Hayden combined folk elements of acoustic guitar and shimmering mandolin with edgy ambient electric guitar, distorted cello, and 80s-inspired synth to create a track that reflects the darker imagery of the song’s new lyrics. Madeleine explains, “The original version of ‘Come to Me’ presents a promise: if everything falls apart, will you come to me? This new reimagined version revisits that promise after all this time, saying: I’ve been with you through it all and I’ll be with you forever.”
Their debut, self-titled album arrived in 2013 and their second full-length album came out in 2014, both via Asthmatic Kitty Records. In 2016, the band shared their third album Keep It Together, and the following year toured with acclaimed folk musicians John Mellencamp, Emmylou Harris, and Carlene Carter. Plus, the duo have had their music featured on fan favorite TV shows like Parenthood, Pretty Little Liars, and on the official soundtrack of the film Promising Young Woman. The pair’s celebrated fourth album Canterbury Girls was released in 2019 via New West Records and solidified the band as a promising folk band to watch.
NPR raved, “Their music — a restrained, homespun mix of folk and pop with undeniably sweet harmonies — certainly ranks among the loveliest we’ve heard.” Billboard described their 2019 album Canterbury Girls as “Cinematic, swirling, joyous.” On their 2019 track “Analog Love,” Refinery29 praised the pair’s voices together, writing, “Their harmonies are of an otherworldly sort that can only come when people have a connection that goes far beyond one the develops from standing in proximity to each other in the studio.” The New York Times echoed that sentiment, writing, “The thing that flags them as extraordinary is their sibling vocal blend, deep and seamless and relaxed.” The band has fans in plenty more notable tastemakers including LA’s KCRW, WXPN’s World Live Cafe, Under the Radar, American Songwriter and more.
With a more refined sound and subject matter that cuts deeper than ever before, the pair is gearing up to share more later this year. See the duo live this summer beginning with a hometown show on May 30 in Indianapolis, IN supporting Jess Williamson. The band will then stop in Bloomington, IN on June 1 and move to South Haven, MI on July 15, concluding in Nashville, TN on July 18.
