Bio

'... It’s not every night one sees a killer headliner matched so perfectly with a just-hitting-their-moment support act.' - The Guardian, Austra at Perth International Arts Festival

Fronted by songstress Louise Penman, Lilt feature pure, biting vocals and powerful, intimate melodies and Matt Mclean's textural synthetic production at the core of their electronic soul. The pair work in tandem to create moments of vocal fragility and dense clouds of synths colliding with system shaking subs, bass growls, and menacing drums.

Their first single of 2015 'Don't Tell Me' entered high rotation on Triple J and has clocked up over 200,000 listens online.

Lilt have toured with Meg Mac on her 'Never Be' single tour, directly supported the likes of canadian act Austra for Perth International Arts Festival, ARIA dominators Flume and Matt Corby on huge sold out club and outdoor shows, as well as Triple J favourites George Maple, Montaigne, Asta, Mitzi and Snakadaktyl.

Lilt's live set crosses boundaries from beautifully stark and sparse to full spectrum electronica, whilst retaining their trademark creative, forward thinking textures, compelling arrangements, and engaging, crystalline vocals.

Dramatic electronic pop from the Lilt twosome, it's super sharp.

Float away indeed. Both mellow and mesmerising at once.
