Lilou & John

The progressive-reactionary indie duo Lilou & John was formed in 2015 by Lilou Dübeck (vocals, creative director) and John Dübeck (lyrics, guitars, bass guitars, manager). Their music spans across multiple genres with many names having been suggested to describe it – art-rock, punk-art, steampunk, neofolk and new names such as dissidentica, helter skelter, fashpunk and covfefe. Some have gone so far as to stick to “two intense weirdos” or “nearly indescribable”.

The band has released four albums, 100 Faces (2016), Dissidentica (2017), Patriot Child (2018) and Airing from Kolyma (2018).

An upcoming EDM/rock crossover album is planned for 2019.

 
 

Traditionalism and anarchy

The band is famous not only for crossing and combining genres but also for their characteristic artwork and music videos. They are also well known for having a female alto singer that seems to divide people in two groups, as described by among others Thomaz Wiberg – since it sounds like nothing heard before there are those who get intimidated by it and those who cannot stop listen.

More than anything, however, Lilou & John are widely recognized as tricksters and constant revolutionaries mocking the powers that be. They are firm in their support for artistic freedom and a cultural renaissance for the entire world, away from mass mentality and one global supermarket, to indie solutions and small scale production that emphasizes on beauty, depth and originality.

The band also runs a lifestyle blog on Cafe Guillotine and an online art gallery on Madame Revolutionary and The Poet, both of which have implemented the mix of traditionalism and anarchy that characterize the duo.
