At the end of February 2020, the boys released their debut single "No Place In Heaven" to a welcomed reception. The first of three singles before their debut EP, the second being "Galactic Neighbours" and third "Watching the World Go By". All the tracks have been recorded in a spare bedroom where they created their home studio set up. In January 2019, the twins heard about a local boy in their village suffering with Neuroblastoma and needed to raise funds to travel abroad for treatment. In order to help raise awareness for him they released a cover version of The Beatles' "Here Comes the Sun". They racked up over 10,000 combined streams and downloads across digital music platforms as well as over 20,000 Facebook views/engagement. All proceeds made from the song and also live events were matched and donated to local boy Harry. Following this the boys appeared on local radio promoting Harry's story (Mad About Harry) and the track, interest from local news (Anglia news) and the official support from Neuroblastoma UK.
twin brothers making power pop songs in a spare room.
Lilac Fall are a pop duo formed by twin brothers Kim Allen (drums/vocals) and Alfie Allen (guitar/vocals) in Milton Keynes. Coming from a musical family, dating back to their Granddad, Jerry Allen, a television entertainer/organist throughout the 50s and 60s, the boys continue to follow in their family roots.
Lilac Fall play around with various sounds and styles. This idea first began back in school, where the twins had to create a piece of music where the theme was ‘outer space’. Revolved around the idea that space is infinite, the track they created, incorporated many different instruments, samples, sounds, ideas and genres. They thought, why not take this approach with their own music? The duo also find inspiration in music from all eras and decades, often being referred to as “having a vintage and old school vibe, made in modern day”. They further find influence in films and film soundtracks all the way from the Sci-Fi genre to the magic of Disney, to the nostalgia of John Hughes and individuality of Tim Burton and Danny Elfman. The boys describe their sound and style as “Planetary Pop”, a nod towards their fun versatility and “limitless” outlook towards creating music.
