Roadburn’s own Walter Hoeijmakers described Lili’s output as “think Anna Von Hausswolff meets Buring World-era Swans” Lili Refrain is an Italian one-woman-band, juggling with guitar and composition, building her ery own sonic perception of psychedelia.
As a solo artist since 2007, LILI REFRAIN plays electric guitar, sings and manages loops in real time, without using any computer or pre-recorded tracks. Her songs are created by overlapping sounds that combine minimalist repetitions to folk, psychedelia, blues, rock, metal, lyrical opera and guitar virtuosity. She uses percussion and synth to improve arrangements and to create a ritual experience. She self-produced three albums that received excellent reviews by music magazines and webzines: “Lili Refrain” (2007), “9” (2010), “KAWAX” (2013) and “ULU” (2020). During these last years, she performed hundreds of shows over Europe with one gig in London (Underworld) the 20th of April. “MANA” will be live promoted with many important festivals like Rodburn (NL), Hellfest (FR), Rock in Burton (FR), AMFest (SP), DUNK! Fest (BE) and a big tour over all Europe in April.
