Brighton’s own shadow entity, Gazelle Twin, create unsettlingly beautiful, hypnotically haunting musical Art with a capital ‘A’.
From the start, Elizabeth Walling has utilised the anonymity provided by costumes, masquerade-like, to assist in her performance. The result is spectacular stage costumes drawing on diverse influences such as Max Ernst and the Alien Trilogy, which enhance Gazelle Twin’s deeply cinematic atmospheric, avant-garde sounds .
Having already earned universal acclaim from the likes of Time Out, The Guardian, Metro and Diva magazine, Walling has been compared to Bjork, Elizabeth Fraser, Siouxsie, Lamb, Portishead, Goldfrapp, Kate Bush and Fever Ray.
This debut Brighton headline show from Gazelle Twin celebrates the anticipated release of the debut album The Entire City, named after a painting by the aforementioned Ernst and due for release in July. It will possess, Walling promises, a “focused, dreamlike intensity”, and aim to be an “unusual, emotional, danceable, memorable, frightening” listen.
Gazelle Twin concert are set to be extravagant affairs, involving every member of the band being as extravagantly attired as Elizabeth. It will, she promises, be “an immersive, audio-visual experience, very different from a usual ‘gig’ vibe – more like a dream or hallucination.”
