Lilies

Kinga Kreffta, a talented Polish singer and songwriter residing in Leeds, United Kingdom, has recently unveiled her latest masterpiece, titled "Lilies," marking her seventh release in her discography. Drawing inspiration from a book that profoundly captured Kinga's attention, "Lilies" was born.

Kinga explains: "I wrote the song inspired by a book I read when I was a teenager. In the story, the husband comes back home after a long time spent at war. Unfortunately, his wife was unfaithful to him, and when caught cheating she decided to kill him. Then she plants Lilies at his grave. I thought this story was ridiculous and interesting at the same time that's why I decided to write a song about "crime in passion" as she didn't think it through and wasn't aware of what she had done."

The result is a captivating blend of her influences from various genres, including alternative, electronic, and art pop. Kinga effortlessly delivers a flawless vocal performance, seamlessly transitioning from soft-spoken vocals to high-range notes.
