A.A. WILLIAMS (Post- Rock\Dark Folk, UK).
"Traditionally, your second album is the worry; where there's the weight of expectation," A.A. Williams contends. "But I must create music I like myself, and I've had more time on this record; I've felt more confidence and conviction. As The Moon Rests is both heavier and softer, there's more texture and weight, and a string ensemble. It's Forever Blue times ten!"
Released in July 2020, Forever Blue was the London-based singer-songwriter's album debut, a brilliantly dramatic, unique and intimate walk on the dark side that fused bold and smouldering hues of post-rock and post-classical. By turns, it was glacial and volcanic, blissful and violent, through moments of disarming quiet and explosive volume, equally appealing to alt-rock and metal camps.
KALANDRA (Nordic Folk, NOR & SE)
Spearheaded by four Norwegian/Swedish musicians, Kalandra is a band with roots in melancholic Nordic folk and gritty guitars, weaving ethereal melodies into raw and eerie musical landscapes.
These shows will be the first headliner concerts of the band since before the pandemic. Fresh off their tour with norse/pagan pioneers in Wardruna this summer and ready to join the prog rock giants Leprous on their next European tour, Kalandra seems destined for greatness.
LYS MORKE (Ambient\Dark Pop, ESP)
Lys Morke (Irene Talló) is a singer-songwriter, producer and visual artist based in Barcelona and born in the nearby town of Terrassa. Through ambient, electronic music and dark pop, she blurs the lines between genres and invites us to explore the inner emotional world with a nostalgic look towards the 90s of PJ Harvey, Massive Attack or Tori Amos and the influence of contemporary electronica by artists such as Arca, Sega Bodega or Grimes.This content has been machine translated.
