Just a few short week's after our stage at this year's Stroud Fringe we proudly bring you Mesadorm's debut performance in Stroud with guests Dear Robot. Tickets are just £8 in advance (see links below!) or £10 on the door...
Mesadorm is a new collaborative project between Blythe Pepino (Vaults), Aaron Zahl, Daisy Palmer (Rae Morris, Goldfrapp, Lillian Boute), Jo Silverston (The Unthanks, Emily Barker and the Red Clay Halo, Frank Turner) and David Johnston (ZunZun Egui, Phil King, Chairfight!). The relationships in the project go back many years and has a distinctly Bristol centred heritage.
After a few years testing the mainstream stage with a major record deal Blythe has moved back to her roots as a left field rock and electronica song writer. Here you will find her in happy harmony with Aaron Zahl who has recorded and produced the up and coming debut album fleshing out the musical world with his electronic sound scapery. Having known each other since they were teenagers and weathered various phases of life and musical outfits, Zahl, Pepino, Palmer and Johnston have a unique connection that plays out in this project with depth and assuredness. The writing sits somewhere between the domestic observation of Suzanne Vega and the powerful, elemental other-worldliness of Bjork.
Dear Robot are an atmospheric indie pop band from Stroud and Leipzig. Starting out in 2016 as a rock two-piece, drummer James Dolman and singer/guitarist Tom Jacob soon recruited Florence Pettet and her synthesisers to expand the band’s sound. Drawing from a wide range of influences such as The Cocteau Twins, Radiohead and Grizzly Bear, what resulted was a unique and heady mix of synth laden, rhythmically intricate guitar pop, at the heart of which is a collection of thoughtful, well-crafted songs. The group have recently released their first single ‘Subject/Object’, produced by Sean Genockey (Reuben, Eagles of Death Metal, Suede, Manic Street Preachers), a shifting and immersive track with a dark disco beat. New single ‘Nowhere’, produced by Aaron Zahl (Mesadorm) is due for release in September.
