Chelsea Wolfe #6 - UK Shows + Movie Screen


The second week of April is already shaping up to be an incredible week for live music in London. I've previously mentioned the first Soap&Skin show since 2009's Union Chapel spectacular on April 11th (tickets) and the largest headlining show (to date) for one of my favourite new talents Daughter on the 12th (tickets). Now add to that the first UK dates for arguably number one on my 'never seen but want to' list Chelsea Wolfe (unless someone manages to resurrect Freddie Mercury from the dead) who plays a week long support tour (and some headline shows) with fellow blog favourites and tips for 2012 2:54 before hitting mainland Europe for a month long tour.

There are two London dates, first on Saturday 7th April supporting Pelican at The Garage (tickets) and on Monday 9th a headlining show at the Old Blue Last (tickets), they promise to be something quite spectacular. See below for proof.

This newly released live video for "Movie Screen" (part one of a session for incase with further videos to be released Jan 24 / 31), the closing track from Chelsea's latest incredible album 'Apokalypsis', this spine-tingling version enhances the bone-chilling beauty of the track, Chelsea's raw and impassioned vocals cloaked around a haunting, mysterious ambience, otherworldly and genuinely stunning. Stop what you are doing and watch now:

Via incase who incidentally I'd never heard of before this.. I shall certainly be checking out the site now, though with previous sessions by The Soft Moon (which I just watched and is truly stunning too!), Austra, La Sera and more it promises to take up my entire day.

If you missed Chelsea Wolfe in 2011, don't make the same mistake in 2012, easily one of the most unique and gifted artists in music today.
