Isolation is nothing new for Fenne Lily – in fact, she’s written an album of songs all about it. “It’s kind of like writing a letter, and leaving it in a book that you know you’ll get out when you’re sad – like a message to yourself in the future,” she says, referring to BREACH, her Dead Oceans debut she wrote during a period of self-enforced isolation pre-COVID. It’s an expansive, diaristic, frequently sardonic record that deals with the mess and the catharsis of entering your 20s and finding peace while being alone. “I think this record is proof that I can be emotionally stable, even if right now I feel a little bit up and down,” says Fenne. “There’s the ability to find clarity in that. It’s sobering, weirdly.”
Armed with only an old telecaster that’s seen better days and her voice, Malco has toured the UK and mainland Europe extensively with the likes of Julien Baker, Jenny Lewis, Bob Mould, Dawes and The Joy Formidable.
Malco released her debut album, ‘Failures’ in 2020 on 6131 Records (Julien Baker, Macseal, Worriers).

“A work of real tenderness and stark honesty.” CLASH
“There’s a powerful vulnerability at the core of Malco’s music, delivered with a resolute self-assurance as she bares her soul, that makes her such a remarkable songwriter.” LONDON IN STEREO
“Bruised, bloodied but unwavering, Katie Malco is a fighter staring down existential and everyday crises. 4****” DORK
