On Lime Green Vinyl. Fenne was born in London and moved to Dorset as a toddler, where shegrew up in the picturesque English countryside. She was a "free range kid,"as she calls it, after her parents took her out of school for a period at the ageof seven. Over the following year, they taught her while the family travelledEurope in a live-in bus. Even after she returned to traditional school at 9,her home education never ended, extending to music. Her mother giftedFenne with her old record collection, through which she discovered her lovefor T-Rex and the Velvet Underground and Nico. Soon after she fell for thestrange genius of PJ Harvey and came to worship Nick Drake, Joni Mitchell,and the richly crafted worlds of Feist, which inspired Fenne to pick up a guitar."On Hold," a tender collection of expressive, open-hearted songs, was Fenne'sfirst foray into songwriting, written during her teenage years. Writing her ownsongs was initially a "therapy exercise" for Fenne, who is normally reservedwhen it comes to talking about her feelings. The album, self-released in 2018,organically found a large audience online, which grew after she opened forLucy Dacus and Andy Shauf's North American tours last spring. Surroundingit's release, The Line of Best Fit deemed Fenne "a new and extraordinary voicecapable of wringing profound and resonant moments out of loss.""To have this record physically re-released is a big deal for me and the personI was when I made it. A lot's changed since then but these songs and whatthey've given me will remain dependable reminders of beginnings andendings that shaped me as a teenager. For an album whose title is half 'hold',it makes sense that now whoever wants to can finally do that again."
