AWAYKE presents Paris XY / Copenhagen / Dyr Sister / Zach Walker
Awaken your senses at The New Adelphi Club on Saturday, 13th December. Alongside the tantalising sounds of Paris XY, Copenhagen and Dyr Sister, you will be treated to Cynamatic Projections from Zach Walker. A feast for the ears and eyes: music, arts and crafted electric vibes.
Paris XY are a duo made up of Alice Smith and James Orvis. With dark poetic lyrics and a sound influenced by Joy Division, Radiohead, Trentemøller and The Knife, they have developed a unique sound which pushes the boundaries of electronic music.
Their recently released single, Wytching Hour, is a disturbing depiction of the everyday man, which sets the listener on a journey to discover truth in the dark view of modern society.
Copenhagen took their name from the road in which they rehearse, in the centre of an industrial estate in Hull. The band consists of Kurt Gurnell, Gareth Mills, Stuart Bichanan and Owen Garbutt. With influences from early to mid-period Verve and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, blended with contemporary The Horrors, these guys produce anthems of melodious, psychedelic rock.
The Dyr Sister is a one-woman band consisting of Sally Currie. Writing and performing her music entirely live, she blends the sounds of her melodic vocals, classical instruments and whatever she pulls from her treasure chest into a delight for the ears. Mixing influences from folk, jungle and dubstep, she refuses to let a genre define her.
Zach Walker creates live visual performances using original filmed content that he mixes with the live Organic Electronics technique. From Seattle, he lived and studied in Hull for a number of years before moving to London to hone his craft through visual art. He’s spent years lighting up festivals and events, such as Glastonbury, producing a projected video installation piece on the outside of the MSRI building, and another piece which premiered in the fine art setting forming a significant part of the recent Reeps One ADO Exhibition, as featured on the BBC London News.
Recently, he has established Make.AMPLIFY with award-winning dance artist Jennifer Irons. Using a mixture of art, movement and innovative digital technology, they reveal all that is hidden, ignored, discarded and forgotten, inspiring people and creating meaningful experiences for their many audiences.
This event promises to amaze, delight and inspire, offering more than your Saturday night. Doors open at 8pm. Tickets are £6 otd.
