‘Lilac’ by Estrons is intense, pounding female-fronted alt-rock from the United Kingdom. This song is dedicated to a teenage girl lead singer Tali Kallstrom encountered, “in the early hours of the morning. I drove past her crying in the street with her shoes in her hand and so I decided to turn the car around to check on her.” Although Kallstrom initially assumed she was reacting to something superficial or some sort of abuse, she discovered the girl’s father had just been diagnosed with terminal cancer. The driving guitars and consistent percussion on here are a great background for Kallstrom’s strong, emotive vocal performance. These guys aren’t reinventing the wheel here, but this is certainly a strong, distinctly female take on alt-rock. Check out ‘Lilac’ below!
