Melting Vinyl are very pleased to share that on 14th May 2020 we will host our first ever online show with the excellent Roxanne de Bastion. Roxanne will take over the Melting Vinyl Facebook and Instagram for a special streamed performance as part of her revolutionary virtual tour, to celebrate the release of her Bernard Butler produced single ‘Erase’. Come join us online to celebrate live music from the comfort of your home!
Roxanne de Bastion is going on tour – without having to pack or leave her house. In light of the current global pandemic, the London based Singer Songwriter has teamed up with independent venues and promoters across the country to go on a virtual live-stream tour to celebrate the release of her new single, Erase.
Each night of the tour, Roxanne de Bastion will play a live stream show from her home on the venue’s / promoter’s social media channels. Fans will be able to donate via the artist’s paypal account.
About the tour, Roxanne say’s “I’m really excited to have found a way to continue working together with independent venues and promoters and hope this will be mutually beneficial. I’m looking forward to introducing my music to new audiences and will try and treat it as much as a proper show as possible. Expect a mix of brand new songs, as well as material off my 2017 Heirlooms & Hearsay album (and maybe the odd cover song so you can sing along from your sofa)”
Roxanne de Bastion’s brand new single Erase is set for release on 6th May. Melodic and beautifully sung as ever, with its primal drums and epic, dramatic strings, Erase is darker in tone and delivery than her previous work, showcasing Roxanne’s ambitious new sonic scope.
Erase can be interpreted both on an interpersonal as well as a political level. The lyrics are a passionate outcry against attempts to rewrite history. Unimpressed with the subjects’ ineptitude and inaction, de Bastion proclaims “you cannot erase it, take it back, extract it from all memory”.
Already a live favourite, Erase is a statement of intent and an exciting first taste of Roxanne’s collaboration with legendary producer Bernard Butler. On working with the revered guitarist, Roxanne cites the 1960s sensibility of his arrangements as a huge draw creatively. About Butler’s production on Erase, she says: “I was blown away when he played me his idea for the string arrangement on this track and was really humbled at how enthusiastic he was about the song. I love listening to those strings, it’s cathartic how they fall and find their way from chaos to calm. I’m so excited to share this track…and there’ll be more to come after that!
