Cesarians Hallowe’en Happening with Valve and Bella Barton
Join us this Halloween night for a special headline set from The Cesarians and special guests..
The suitably spectral edge to this remarkable band’s music finds a good Hallowe’en home at Paper Dress this evening, but no shock tactics necessary, The Cesarians are always tempering their sincerely hauntological fire with succulent but soulfully intense high drama pop noir.
Following critically acclaimed albums produced by Craig Leon and Teo Millar, the ‘wrong rock/odd pop’ maestros now channel a slightly more electronica hinged furrow with a little less brass a little more of a bleep factor and a wee bit of Velvets cum Glen Campbell guitar.
Long standing fans of this ace act will be pleased no doubt that there’s no let up in the intensity and emotional maelstrom they have always channelled. .. and then there’s Charlie Finke and Justine Armitage’s sensational song craft. All emotions are accessed, nerves are stripped back to the bone, the rawness is palpable, joy, dispair, anger, the lot.
Admirers of Nick Cave, Jacques Brel, Kris Kristoffersen, Bowie will all enjoy these dark eyed romantics, but all manner of things resonate in their wonderful body of work from The Fall to ELO to Cardiacs.
Chloe Herington and her two compadres with their unique take on minimalist found sound built antsy pop. Really interesting work that is as accessible as it is outre. Great stuff…new E.P ‘Cycles’ is about to emerge.
Young bohemian singer songwriter with a nice relaxed vibe and a fetching hint of out thereness.. perhaps it’s the nice yielding tone to her voice, but there’s a lot to keep the attention with the edgy, declamatory yet sweet toned songs Bella has crafted. These songs are drifting modal affairs that have tons of appeal. Not bog standard singer songwriter fare at all, thankfully.Jazzy stoned vibes, dolorous cool delivery…reminds somewhat of Marine Girls era Tracey Thorn. Educated at the Brit School and living proof that esoteric talent can be trained if not actually taught….reminds somewhat of Marine Girls era Tracey Thorn.
