American singer-songwriter Lila Drew recently unveiled her new single, Crystal Ball. To celebrate the release, the singer has shared with MILKY 10 things you probably didn't know about her!


“The original demo of the song consisted of a scrappy lead vocal, guitar, background vocals, and this little drum machine, and I remember it didn’t feel exactly right,” Drew shares. “A few weeks after making the demo, I had a chance to meet a hero of mine, James Blake, and our conversation gave me the confidence to strip it back. We talked a lot about the anxieties that come with songwriting and about letting my voice take the lead rather than hiding behind loads of production. That has certainly had an impact on a lot of my new music — allowing myself to yell and be emotive in that way. It’s maybe as sincere as I get.”



ONE

I live for pimple popping- My entire TikTok feed is just pimple popping videos and Emily Mariko.



TWO

I’m short (5”1 and three quarters), but you will never see me without huge platform boots.



THREE

I love 100 Gecs. I am obsessed with the umru remix of ringtone. My friends and I listen to a lot of 100 Gecs (unironically) while we get ready.



FOUR

If the music doesn’t work out, I’ll be cooking forever.



FIVE

My favorite movie is the original Jungle Book. I love the soundtrack from that movie so much. Second place would be Almost Famous. I also love Fellini’s 8 1/2, and the Before trilogy is a favorite too.



SIX

I’m an English major who doesn’t read.



SEVEN

I’m a Depop (second-hand shopping app) fiend.



EIGHT

I have a dairy allergy, and used to be really allergic as a kid. I’ve sort of grown out of it now but I’ve still never had regular milk.



NINE

My favorite song is Teenage Dream. I think old Katy Perry is just amazing and such classic pop.



TEN

I co-host a radio show called Two Pretty Best Friends :) It streams every Tuesday from 10-11pm EST here!
