London-based singer and rapper Lilith Ai is being heralded as a fresh new feminist voice in the U.K. music scene. She fuses Riot Grrrrl-style with alt-soul and is a triple threat as a visual artist, musician, and activist.
She is set to release her Riot EP Deluxe April 15 on Lo Recording.
“Born in North East London, Lilith grew up ‘street wise’. In her early teens with only £70 in her pocket she ran away to America and spent the next few years living on the streets of Queens in New York, which left a powerful influence on her music. “Hang Tough” is a great example of Lilith’s strong but sensitive style, while “Yeah Yeah” takes a step into a more experiential world of pop sound and lyrics.”
As part of the project’s first drop last year, she teamed up with model Georgia May Jagger to create the Riot Zine, a feminist notebook that featured musings on gender inequality, race, and sexuality.
Lilith Ai teams up with i-D Magazine again, this time to release her unique cover of Queen Latifah’s iconic hit U.N.I.T.Y. Watch and Listen below.
