Lily Fitts' "Lose You Now" Weaves Classic Folk Instincts With Pop Grace


23-year-old Lily Fitts, hailing from Boston, MA, weaves classic folk instincts in with the grace of modern pop. Her latest single “Lose You Now” is a delicate but determined ode to a former love, standing upright in the face of heartache. 

A warm acoustic guitar opens the track, persisting at the heart of the arrangement throughout the entire song. Fitts’ low-toned voice joins, crooning with the captivating narrative quality that brands all the best folk singers. As a whole, the instrumental landscape of “Lose You Now” functions to complement Fitts’ voice, acting as a vessel through which the story can cascade. The percussion is light and rolling, and the bridge reaches a sunny peak for “Lose You Now,” opening up into a twinkling spread of guitars. With an orchestral twist, Fitts intertwines strings within the soundscape. They embrace the poignancy of the song, swaying in and out of impassioned solos, mournful yet proud.

But ultimately, if you stripped the track down to just the opening guitar and vocals, the same emotion would flow from the song—a mark of true songwriting by Lily Fitts, Grace Enger, and Doug Schadt. As the lyrics paint a picture of tenacity—“I don’t want to give you up, but I have to lose you now”—the arrangement responds, offering shimmering layers that are steadfast even in their grief. 

“Lose You Now” is an elegant addition to Lily Fitts’ budding discography, inviting listeners further into the world of her authentic songwriting.
