Premiered by Huw Stephens on Radio 1 earlier this week, Welsh alt-rock three-piece Estrons share cutting new track, ‘Lilac’.

An explosive sub-three minutes of visceral energy, ‘Lilac’ packs a punch with Rhodri Daniel’s off-kilter guitars and Tali Källström’s commanding vocals, and lyrics that owe a debt to “an encounter I had with a teenage girl in the early hours of the morning,” reveals Källström.

“I drove past her crying in the street with her shoes in her hand and so I decided to turn the car around to check on her. I’d assumed that she was crying about something superficial and I’d also assumed that the man walking a few feet behind her was trying to take advantage. Turns out the man actually lived on that street and the girl was heartbroken because her dad had just been diagnosed with terminal cancer.

“We often get things wrong because society leads us to create prejudices on genders; the song is myself reflecting on that. It also celebrates human empathy as the girl I helped was genuinely touched that I’d stopped to check she got home okay. I haven’t seen her since that day – but this one goes out to her, anybody who is going through a difficult time and also to all the people out there who have helped me in a crisis. Someone always cares and you can get through it.”
