Knife Girl shares new single ‘Estrogen’, an expression of gender euphoria
The endless creative zeal of Knife Girl knows no bounds. This week, Knife Girl, the moniker of 22 year old songwriter/producer Lili Aslo, has released a new slice of dance pop fun with new single ‘Estrogen’, conveying deep and personal feelings.
Of her new single, Lili says: “‘Estrogen’ is an expression of gender euphoria, and a celebration of my life and friends. When I wrote the lyrics “I love my tits, I love my dick”, I had to stop for a moment to think if it was too provocative to say. But I realised: Why should it be provocative to anyone that I love my body? The lyrics keep looping over and over, an affirmation to myself. This is what me loving myself sounds like.“
Releasing music under different guises since 2013, Knife Girl has released 5 EP’s and one album collecting more than 12 million listeners on various music platforms and garnering praise from the likes of The Line Of Best Fit, Notion, Wonderland, EARMILK, and more. Knife Girl’s Metro EP from June 2021 caught the attention of tastemakers all over, further cemented by the OONA EP from November 2021. Knife Girl’s growing reputation as a producer and songwriter of adventurous sonic endeavours replenished with special melodic gifts was merely enhanced by her debut album Uniform released in September 2022.
Live shows have grown in stature from solo appearances to full on seven piece band dynamics with Aslo’s endearing personality shining through. The often chameleon-like nature of Aslo’s music has traversed genres such as bedroom pop, hyperpop, classic indie rock and more in an ever expanding and crafted oeuvre. These releases have garnered everything from Emmy nominations (Finnish Grammy), multiple indie award nominations, national broadcaster YleX’s Breakthrough Artist recognition and Impala’s one’s to watch for 2023.
