7.50pm – Weyes Blood
8.40pm – Molly Nilsson
9.50pm – Sean Nicholas Savage
This fall sees the release of Sean Nicholas Savage’s latest record, Other Death. Savage, a master of tenderness, reflection and projection, has released and toured relentlessly in pursuit of the rarer beauties found only in the nuance of pop song and performance. In contrast to his usual introspection, Other Death is immediately more upbeat, uptempo, confident, inspired and delivers more consistent pop singles than any of his previous records.
Molly Nilsson has been running her own label and producing her own music since 2007, releasing 6 albums, several EP’s and producing evocative videos that elaborate on the themes she is obsessed by. The music released under own moniker is a heartfelt rendering of romanticised pop music, gloriously DIY in method and honest in practice. Clearly influenced by the minimal synthesizer pop of the 80s but also adept at timeless melancholic song writing, each song presents a compact sound world which twinkles with a sense of loneliness and the warmth of its opposite.
Both artists are gracing the stage in a co-headliner this November at the very fitting Bethnal Green Working Mens Club.
Weyes Blood (aka Natalie Mering) trafficks in the purest forms of musical expression: the voice, the words, and the music all ring true, as if shuttled in from the realization that there are no absolutes, especially in your mind.
