Matt Elliott & Vacarme

NEWS


BIO

Encouraged by Murailles Music, the encounter between Matt Elliott’s haunted folk and the chimerical textures of VACΛRME is the promise of an immersion in a soft mist, before being overwhelmed under a rain of strings. In fifteen years and eight albums, the Bristolian songwriter established his ability to compose genuine “chansons-monde” that are never afraid to exceed the ten-minute mark. For its part, since its formation in 2012, the string trio has constantly been reinventing itself, both as a trio and through various collaborations (Stranded Horse, Rone, Villeneuve & Morando).

Here, because it is about much more than a conventional accompaniment, VACΛRME will reveal the essence of a rare songwriting, furrowing through the melodies, as close to them as possible, right into the wood of the instruments. Matt Elliott’s murmurs will tenderly curl up in the violins’ and the cello’s sound holes, at the risk of seeing his deepest howls arise from them.

LINE-UP
Matt Elliott : vocals, guitar
Carla Pallone : violin
Christelle Lassort : violin
Gaspar Claus : cello

With the support of FGOBarbara, Adami (civil society for the Administration of Performers’ and Musicians’ Rights) and CNV.
