Undercurrent Sessions presents: Mesadorm at Eype Church
Mesadorm is a new collaborative project between May Gibbs, Aaron Zahl, Daisy Palmer (Rae Morris, Goldfrapp, Lillian Boute), Jo Silverston (The Unthanks, Red Clay Halo, Frank Turner) and David Johnston (ZunZun Egui, Phil King, Chairfight!). The relationships in the project go back many years and have a distinctly Bristol centred heritage.
What to expect: After a few years testing the mainstream stage with a major record deal Gibbs has donned a pseudonym and 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, Gibbs, 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.
