CANDICE GORDON RECORD RELEASE
Punk’n’roll/record release of the debut album by the Berlin based artist with guests.
Having previously recorded an EP with punk legend and hellraiser Shane MacGowan, Candice Gordon is set to release her debut full length album ‘Garden of Beasts’ on the 9rd of September 2017 via Proper Octopus Records.
Produced by labelmate A.S. Fanning, and mixed by Ingo Krauss (Swans, Iggy and the Stooges), the album was recorded between a country house in Ireland and at the legendary Funkhaus in Berlin. It presents a rich and brooding sonic landscape constructed using a variety of synthetic and natural instruments from Moogs to flutes and strings.
“Garden of Beasts is inspired by moving to Berlin and facing the very dark and heavy history that is visible and inescapable everywhere in the city. It’s an exploration of human nature, the hubris of identity, dispossession, and the conflict between the allure of savagery and the desperation for salvation from that.” explains Candice.
Candice Gordon grew up by the sea in Dublin, Ireland, and is currently based in Berlin. She has previously performed at Bestival, Body and Soul, Electric Picnic and Truck Festival, and supported and shared stages with the likes of Shane MacGowan, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, The Horrors, and Kurt Vile and the Violators. She has toured extensively in Europe and the UK since 2012 and the release of her debut singles “Smoking Like the Barrel of a Gun” and “Cannibal Love”. // Website

Livia Rita & artists present the avant-garde concert of her forthcoming debut album “Rewild”
… has developed her own eclectic musical style together with composer and producer Tom McLuckie drawing on a wide range of influences and genres spanning electronic, pop, experimental, classical and new wave styles. She subverts the listeners with each song, as wild, brutal textures meet vulnerable, otherworldly melodies in adventurous and emotional ways.
Livia Rita explores more avant-garde ways of performing her synthesiser drenched music through a strong visual identity; formed of bespoke costumes, theatrical staging and stylised movement created by herself; realised by dancers. Together, it collides into a 4D explosion of art; a surreal live music video that straddles fantasy and reality, capable of intoxicating audiences with the exploration of love, freedom, dreams and progressive thinking. The audience is lured into Livias mind, and is taken on a journey to gain ownership over the future. This work was developed at the Barbican in London and in Switzerland. // Facebook – Instagram
