“…if you take The Horrors and cross-pollinate them with Cocteau Twins, then give the resulting creation to Stereolab for a remix you’d likely end up with a sweet, hypnotic and curiously danceable tune such as this. A neat blend of psychedelia, krautrock and dreampop, ‘Dancing Star’ is one of those tracks that could have been made at any time in the last two decades, such is its timeless quality and use of analogue-sounding synths. This shimmers, it sparkles and it shines incredibly brightly; a sumptuous and rich slice of tingling ear candy.” SoundsXP
“Lilies on Mars remind us of the first time we heard Broadcast’s ‘Book Lovers’ or Stereolab’s ‘Jenny Ondioline’… it’s rarely been off the stereo since.” Drowned in Sound
“If you’re a fan of Stereolab, Broadcast, Pure Reason Revolution or The Cocteau Twins later material, this may be of interest to you.” Louder Than War
Lilies on Mars are the abundantly creative and craft-filled recording project of Lisa Masia and Marina Cristofalo, two multi-instrumentalist musicians and producers. Collaborations with Franco Battiato and Christian Fennesz, as well as supporting Au Revoir Simone and Fanfarlo in Europe and North America, have showcased their hypnotic and vibrant live show to a large audience.
Theirs is a retro futurist sound blended with electro dream pop, experimenting with vintage organs, synthesizers, psychedelic oscillations, space echo and charming ethereal vocals.
In February 2014 Saint Marie Records released their debut album ‘Dot To Dot’. The first single, ‘Oceanic Landscape’, featuring Franco Battiato, was picked as Track of the Week by Simon Raymonde (Bella Union/Cocteau Twins) on his Amazing Radio show.
‘Dancing Star’ is the lead single from their upcoming album ‘∆GO’, due to be released by Lady Sometimes Records via Cargo early this autumn.
Mixed and co-produced with Tom Furse from The Horrors, ‘Dancing Star’ is an uplifting, psychedelic dance track with cosmic groove, hypnotic synth arpeggiators, sensual vocals and addictive hooks throughout.
