Overview of Lilygun
Lilygun adheres to no rules. A guitar based rock band,
Lilygun was formed by Anna-Christina, the songwriter/singer/guitarist.
Her unusual combination of classical roots mixed with dark aggression has resulted in an uncompromising and
unpredictable Rock that has an edge to it and has been described as a shower of bullets and petals.
Anna-Christina's unconventional theatre upbringing plays an interesting part in Lilygun but more fascinating,
is her spectacular comeback and triumph over tragedy when her life was almost cut short after suffering from a
Subarachnoid Brain Haemorrhage.
This is a band free from rules, fashion trends and the common trappings
of most rock bands. Not willing to submit to the norm, Lilygun has
the ability to create a strange and captivating atmosphere when
playing live. When the question arises of whom or what they are
like, it's always met with the same reply, "I dunno"! The name "Lilygun"
was just two words thrown together at first but as they progressed,
it took on a meaning all on it's own. It's a perfect representation
of the many contradictions the band has. Something beautiful inverted
into darkness. Aggressive and heavy in parts of the set they play
to soft and fragile and all projected with a sense of glamour and
a certain freshness and vibe of their own.
After the success of the band's first two singles, notably the second
single Moonlight receiving rave reviews and making XFM's Playlist
on the Ian Camfield Rock Show, Lilygun's self-titled debut album
is out now on A Line Records/Cargo.
