Defying traditional genre and embodying idiosyncrasy, dark pop artists Ilana and Marc Martell join forces to form the project Lady Starbeast. Ilana is the songwriter and vocalist; Marc creates the instrumentation; and together they record and produce. Their first single, Twisted Mind, was released on September 28th, 2018 and the 2nd single from their upcoming debut EP arrived on the scene October 30th.
Ilana combines sultry, powerful vocals with operatic background harmonies, dark, eerie and intricate melodies and a wild, irreverent spirit that evokes the likes of Amy Winehouse and Sia. Her lyrical content explores the introspective particularities of mental health, while using a broad lens to remark on the human condition. Marc’s dramatic electro-pop instrumentation gives the listener a glimpse into the inner-workings of their minds and hearts, making for a raucous and haunting experience.
