Eleven presents: Anchor the Sun – Going Through The Motions

Talented artist Lilly known as “Anchor the Sun” (her musical project), shares her single “Going Through The Motions”, available now on all digital stores.

Influenced by David Gilmour, The Beatles, Tropicalia movement and Brazilian poetry, her music depicts introspection, despair and hope and encompasses both the struggles and the joys of being human.

Her single “Going Through The Motions” is a cry for help. It’s about feeling trapped and struggling to believe in the possibility for change. Lilly wanted to explore untraditional harmonic maps using key modulations. When arranging vocal harmonies, Lilly’s influences were Os Mutantes, Secos e Molhados and The Beatles, with a characteristic 60s style for a timeless theme to layover. It was produced in collaboration with former bandmate Bruno Prado and mastered by Big Bass Brian.

BEHIND THE SCENES, LET’S KNOW MORE ABOUT THE ARTIST: Anchor the Sun’ debut single, ‘I Don’t Know’, was released independently in 2020, followed by another three singles, ‘Not Enough’ the lockdown hit ‘When This Is Over’, with musicians performing from their homes across five countries. And the third one is ‘SAY IT’, which had over 8k Spotify streams in only three weeks and made it to Brazil’s biggest rock radio, 89 A Rádio Rock.  Lilly’s biggest yet gig is booked for April, supporting Agnes Nunes at The Jazz Café in London. She has been working on new music in Edinburgh, Glasgow and London, with a release plan for 2021/22 and a tour plan for the second half of 2022.
