Following on from the glittering response to their brilliant standalone single ‘Gymnopédie’ last year, French sibling duo Black Lilys now make their euphoric return with the vibrant new offering ‘Invisible Strings’. Channelling more of the same rich and atmospheric direction they have cultivated for themselves over the years, ‘Invisible Strings’ sees them return with a broad and effortless finesse. With a smooth and driven direction that slowly rises and grows with every chord, their newest release marks a stunning reprieve for the pair as they prepare to release more new music throughout the year ahead.
Producing bright and timeless pop music that balances both strength and vulnerability throughout, Black Lilys deliver a smooth blend between Robin’s driving guitar melodies and Camille’s effortless, raspy vocals. They offer a strikingly unique sound with organic tones, reminiscent of Angus and Julia Stone,The XX or Aurora. After winning the prestigious national award La bourse Lagardère in 2018, they recorded their first studio album ‘Boxes’. Following the release, Netflix featured their single ‘Nightfall’ in their hit series Elite, seeing it reach more than two million streams since. Over the years, they shared stages with the likes of Chris Garneau, The Dø, Pete Doherty, George Ezra, Zaz, and Pomme, who invited them on her tour before finishing at the Olympia last September.
Their forthcoming album ‘New Era’, mixed by Odd Martin (Aurora, Sigrid) was written in Scotland, where the siblings spent their isolation. Inspired by the Highlands and rainy days, they started to produce their new songs in Edinburgh, where Camille regularly lives, before finishing the recording process by the French mountains last winter. ‘New Era’ will be released in 2022.
