You know how the old saying goes: Women who speak in whispers rarely make history. That’s why tiLLie is bowling us over with her self-proclaimed anti-pop Loud Mouth, her rambunctious EP released back on March 8. “You get real mad when I don’t shut up / Like you’re the only one that gets to talk” she asserts on the title track, presenting a bitter refusal to stay “in her lane,” whatever the hell that means.
“This track is my declaration of that [being unapologetic] both lyrically and musically,” she says of the anthemic track in the presser. “It’s kind of like, if you don’t get me or my music by now, then it just ain’t for you.” The Los Angeles singer performs at Great Scott on Monday (April 1) alongside Cherry Pools; get acquainted with the “whole wide world” of tiLLie below beforehand.
