The group project of singer-songwriter-producer Sukie Smith – will be presenting tracks from their new acclaimed album Gone Before Morning available via Sukie’s own label Shilling Boy, distributed by CARGO, as well as old classics from In Case of Emergency. The new album comprises eight original songs, combining elements of trip-hop and Western gothic with Sukie’s own expressive widescreen vision. It also includes deconstructed takes on Odyssey’s ‘If You’re Looking For A Way Out’ and Al Wilson’s Northern Soul classic, ‘The Snake’. Gone Before Morning has been listed on the Guardian Weekly Music section by Caroline O’Sullivan and received four stars in Q Magazine. Later that year Sukie provided the score to the British independent film, Hush Your Mouth, featuring her song ‘Ride The Waves’ as the prominent ‘outro’. The film recently won Best Film and Best Director at the Portugal Film Festival. In April 2010 she collaborated with Italian band Hollowblue on the co-write ‘Wild Dogs Run’, appearing with them in the Europe’s first ever 3D music video, which won the award for Best Music Video at Hollywood’s 3D Film Awards 2010. Gone Before Morining, this self-released and fan-funded album combines delicacy and fragility with a sense of purpose, style and self confidence. It’s hard to fault. – Right Chord Music –


Lilies on Mars are a three-piece experimental shoegaze band based in London, comprised of Lisa Masia, Marina Cristofalo and Matthew Parker. Lisa and Marina met over ten years ago and were the touring and film collaborators of Italian icon Franco Battiato before forming Lilies on Mars in August 2008″. Fascinated by the spirit of DIY, they produced, mixed and self-released their debut album in April 2009. Shortly after, they debuted live at La Cigale Theatre in Paris with Franco Battiato and continued touring on their own in UK, Italy, Germany and USA for the whole 2009/beginning 2010. Following collaborations with various musicians, Lisa and Marina welcomed Matthew Parker (ex-Sunny Day Sets Dire) to join them on the drums. Thier new critically acclaimed album I Wish You Were a Pony has just been released independently on 23 May. Dreamy, slow-burning pop from this alabaster-skinned unsigned London trio. Surfing on the back of of some angelic harmonies and early New Order-esque guitar riffs. – Soundblab’.
