UK alt-pop singer-songwriter – and Mario Kart fan – Litany chats to Notion about her new EP “Adult Movies”, her YouTube channel and what’s next
Evolving her sound without compromising her identity, UK artist Litany is taking it to the next level with her new EP ‘Adult Movies’. Litany, real name Beth Cornell, launched her new era with tracks “Cream” and “Sleepover”, met with praise from fans and critics alike. Litany crescendos the hype by sharing her brand new single “Adult Movies” off the EP of the same name.
Produced by Fyfe and co-written with James New, who has penned songs for Dua Lipa, the track chronicles the story of two friends whose unexpected lust transforms into love. Echoing the storyline of “Sleepover”, “Adult Movies” offers insight into the narrative from a different perspective. With a penchant for creating vivid memories through her artistry, Litany’s “Adult Movies” is a captivating listen from the outset.
Alongside “Adult Movies” comes two brand new tracks, “The End” and “Happy Anniversary”, fleshing out the 5-piece EP into Litany’s proudest release to date. Set to headline a show at London’s Scala in September, Litany is sure to make waves with her latest release.
Notion catches up with avid gamer Litany about her new EP, her YouTube channel PlayLIT where she interviews special guests whilst playing against them at Mario Kart, and what’s next for UK’s next hottest alt-pop gem.
