WTSH Top 10 Releases of 2013 Series: Lilies on Mars.

About Lilies on Mars
Lilies on Mars is the retro-futuristic dreampop project of Marina Cristofalo and Lisa Masia. Hailing from Sardinia and presently based in London, the duo identify themselves as “British/Italo-Alien,” an apt designation for anyone familiar with the truly extraterrestrial ethereality of their sound. Lilies’ third full-length, Dot to Dot, was released in Italy this year and will be given worldwide release by Saint Marie Records in 2014. Dot to Dot includes “Oceanic Landscape”, a sublime collaboration with Italian pop’s elder statesman Franco Battiato, which we posted here. Saint Marie has recently released “Dream of Bees” as the first single from the album along with two striking remixes including one by Silver Swans that we posted here. Many thanks to Lisa and Marina for providing us with a list of their ten favorite albums of 2013!
