About Melanie Di Biasio
Following last year’s interim track, the 25 minute opus, Blackened Cities, and the announcement of her imminent new album Lilies on October 6th, Melanie De Biasio will be playing at Scala on the 16th October.
The nine-track Lilies continues to enthrall from openers Your Freedom Is The End Of Me, with its immersive narrative underpinned by piano, and the first track to be unveiled Gold Junkies. An up-tempo, entrancing introduction to a collection of tracks that ventures to stimulate both lyrically and musically whilst enticing the listener into an expressive and atmospheric environment.
As she explains in her own words; “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.’”
Lilies is released through Le Label / Play It Again Sam and will be available digitally, on CD and limited vinyl. You can pre-order the album at: http://found.ee/MDBLilies
