Best Dressed Ex / Your New Tattoo

Best Dressed Ex and Your New Tattoo marks the first of Freddie's releases following his debut Lilac Underpass collection in 2021. 

These tracks work together to explore love and heartbreak from different perspectives. Freddie uses both music and poetry to talk about different themes arisen, and allows the relationship between the two pieces to speak about the things that neither say.

Freddie Lewis' debut body of work 'Lilac Underpass Mixtape' and accompanying poetry book 'Notes from a Lilac Underpass' tell stories of falling in love, grieving loss, self-discovery, growing up and finding self-pride. 

 

With seven tracks, the mixtape takes influence from indie-soul front runners Arlo Parks and Easy Life, acoustic folk artists Dodie, Lewis Watson and Nick Drake and Freddie's re-ignited childhood love of The Streets. From acoustic pop track 'Fly It Back To Me' to playful indie spoken word tune 'Cinderella', Freddie carefully ties together different elements of his favourite genres and interesting lyrical ideas to create a unique, warm and thoughtful collection of songs, full to the brim with everyday imagery, self-realisation and the cityscape.

"I just love everything Freddie Lewis makes"

POETRY

Freddie Lewis’ ‘Notes from a Lilac Underpass’ accompanies his debut musical project: Lilac Underpass Mixtape. This autobiographical poetry collection explores Freddie’s journey to happiness. He finds the good in the little things and tells stories laden with everyday imagery, romanticizing the mundane with a poetic eye for detail. The book explores writing, loving, healing, being, and blooming, concluding with a great reflection on Freddie’s adolescence as a young LGBTQ+ person. Freddie tells delicate stories of healing, coming-of-age, and finding lilac amongst the grey.

"Freddie demonstrates a simple, joyful celebration of self-pride that shows up in his being simply who he is. You don’t need to be queer to appreciate his art — you only need to be human."
