Lizzy & The Fanatics – Middle Child

Lizzy wrote this dreamy synth-driven indie-pop song after watching the 1995 movie Welcome to the Doll House. In this movie, the main character Dawn is a middle child who struggles for love and attention. Like this movie, the song encapsulates the coming of age feeling of wanting attention and dreaming about being ”the only one”.

The song is sad at times but resolves into an upbeat synth solo that goes into the last verse – celebrating all of the character’s dreams and desires.

Lizzy writes, records and produces dreamy head-in-the-clouds pop songs with raw feels, nostalgic synths, guitars, and a dash of sparkle out of her Montreal home. Influenced by 80s and 90s synth and indie-pop, as well as top of the chart hits, Lizzy combines DIY ethics with pop hooks. Lizzy performs on stage with the Fanatics.

As a pivotal band of Montreal’s dream-pop scene, Lizzy and the Fanatic’s bilingual indie-pop has been featured in official playlists, Canadien television, and radio shows. Lizzy’s new single Middle Child combines pop hooks, 80’s nostalgia, and storytelling to create a fun and comforting feeling.

Lizzy & the Fanatic’s up and coming EP Perfect World is out June 20th.
