Brussels Dorian Wood @Botanique 9 novembre 2017 19:30-9 novembre 2017 22:30 Festival Botanique Botanique
BIO: Los Angeles-based artist Dorian Wood is « armed with a vocal charisma that would befit a preacher and an experimental streak that would make avant-gardists swoon » (WNYC Culture). He’s a wunderkind with a headstrong DIY discipline and with a voice that channels the skill and ferocity of such auteurs as Scott Walker and Nina Simone.
His most recent album, XALÁ, was recorded in Villarreal, Spain with bassist Xavi Muñoz (Laetitia Sadier) and percussionist Marcos Junquera (Daniel Johnston). In a first for Dorian, the album is sung completely in his mother tongue. Stylistically, it is a work that some have defined as sounding like a collaboration between Swans and Chavela Vargas, with its dark acoustic tones and soul-shattering vocals.
PRESS: « A fearless artist and performer whose voice inhabits a room like a choir of ghosts…the man’s work is imbued with both bleeding rawness and dramatic flair. » – LA Weekly
FOR FANS OF: Scott Walker, Antony & The Johnsons, Nick Cave
