Melanie De Biasio | Lilies

„Lilies“ is new upcoming new album by multi-instrumentalist Melanie De Biasio casting a mesmerising shadow over the proceedings alongside her long-term ensemble of players. The album is released through Le Label/Play It Again Sam and is available on Bandcamp.

“For me, Lilies has a darkness, but it’s also luminous. After my experiences with ‚No Deal‘ and ‚Blackened Cities‘, I just wanted to retreat to a cave with my Pro-Tools, my computer, and my cheap, 100Euro Shure SM-58 microphone. I could have gone to a big studio, made a big production – but I wanted none of that. I wanted to go back to the seed of creativity, the simplest materials. I was in this room where there was no light, no night or day at all, no heat. Very uncomfortable. But I felt free. I was happy to have this feeling – ‘I don’t need more, I have everything I need here.’“ – Melanie De Biasio
