Lili Refrain follows her own unique path to Roadburn 2022

Lili Refrain caught our ear in the wilderness months of the last two years – her otherworldly sounds transporting us to somewhere unfamiliar yet meditative. A musician since 2007, it’s safe to say that Lili has trod her own path, collating a unique and organic palette from which she creates. Combining electric guitar, vocals, percussion, synths and loops, she crafts a sonic netherworld, to which we’re all invited. 

So, it is with great pleasure that we’re announcing that Lili Refrain will be joining us at Roadburn 2022. She’s currently working on a new album, due for release next year, so the promise of new music as part of her show looms ahead as a tantalising prospect. Roadburn’s own Walter Hoeijmakers described Lili’s output as “think Anna Von Hausswolff meets Buring World-era Swans”, which should give you a good idea of what’s in store.

On her Roadburn performance, Lili commented:

“In the light of these past few years of love and devotion to sound’s nomadism, only interrupted by this last dark year, it comes with immense and extreme joy the opportunity to participate to one of best festivals on the planet, where I’ll be honored to present my new album for the very first time. Also, I’ll bring something unique with me only for this set, something rare and ancestral. I just can’t wait to share all of this with all Roadburners out there.”

Prepare to set sail for unchartered shores.
