Bess of Bedlam

” Magickal”

Shindig! Magazine (UK)

Less acoustic and intimate than the frst album Folly Tales, released in 2018 on Another Record (FR) et Outré (UK), Dance until the crimes end shifts towards a capricious, fanciful and sophisticated pop, sometimes coloured with psychedelic folk. A songwriting infuenced by Anglo-Saxon music (Kate Bush, Robert Wyatt, Virginia Astley, Joni Mitchell), including lyrics which express a taste for English poetry.

Passing through this extraordinary and tormented trip, you particularly come across feminist activists against nuclear war in the 80’s, three women whose destinies untertwine, a russian anarchist woman in the 20’s, a mother and her daughter endlessly struggling… All these adventures sublimated by winding melodies and harmonic surprises, to which Bess of Bedlam alone holds the key.
