twin brothers making alternative pop songs in a spare room.
Lilac Fall are an independent alternative pop duo based in suburban Milton Keynes, made up of twin brothers Kim Allen Jnr (drums and vocals) and Alfie Allen (guitar and vocals).
The twin duo write, record and produce their music from home, where they have turned a spare room into their studio. Inspired by their late Grandad Jerry Allen, organist and TV Entertainer throughout the 50s and 60s, the brothers follow in their family roots.
Throughout lockdown the twins became gripped by the Bedroom Pop and DIY world and after enrolling in Ryan Tedder’s songwriting/production course
the boys finished six songs that would make up their new EP EP, The "Lilac" EP, which would release 30th December 2021.
Having released their first EP at the end of 2020 “Songs From Your Future...” which featured songs from their teen years, the new EP sees the band take on a new lease of life and head in a new direction.
The EP takes the listener on a journey of infatuation, insecurity, and change.
Over the course of the six tracks we are presented with a soaring blend of dreamy synth textures, anthemic choruses, golden saxophone solos, big guitar solos, cinematic soundscapes and an unwavering youthful message.
The lead single "Saturday's Dream" sounds reminiscent of something straight out of a John Hughes 80s movie. This track was built for screaming at the top of your lungs in your car. The single was accompanied by a music video.

The second and final single "Love It, Leave It, Let It Go" tells a story of heartbreak. The song hits hard with its pining choruses and brutal yet optimistic lyrics. Upon release, a lyric video accompanied.

"She Never Lets Me Down" was co-written with the boys Dad Kim Allen Snr.
Speaking on "Saturday's Dream", the twins said, “Something that’s always been consistent with us is we take what we do seriously but try not to take ourselves too seriously. With “Saturday’s Dream” we really wanted to make something euphoric, something fun and something to inspire and reignite a sense of freedom and love within yourself. If nothing goes right, go left!”
