Soundcrash Presents… 


Echoes | 22nd August


“A pleasing fixture in electronic music.” Noisey

We are beyond excited to welcome Szjerdene to the Soundcrash recently-opened intimate venue Echoes, in Haggerston on Monday 22nd August.

Her mix of soul- and folk-inflected vocals combined with electronic, left-field sounds, Szjerdene has commanded the attention of music lovers and journalists, and so the humble surroundings of Echoes is the perfect venue to showcase her talent.

SZJERDENE has a voice both earthly in its soul and celestial in its purity. Soothingly familiar it may be to some but never has it been so distilled into an artistic statement of sonic and visual intent. Following up critically acclaimed work as a lead vocalist and co­writer for Lapalux and Bonobo respectively, Szjerdene is now destined for solo stardom. Growing up in East London, but now residing along the scenic canals of Amsterdam, Szjerdene has been quietly honing her luscious take on the craft for the past few years and turning heads around the globe.

With an impressive range of strings to her bow, the first official EP ‘Patchwork’, dropped in 2013 via Ninja Tune, the soulful songstress then went on to write and tour with Bonobo on his ‘The North Borders’ album playing 175 headline dates and festivals for 18 months. At the end of 2015, Szjerdene presented her second EP ‘P ARAGON’ in its blissful entirety, including three singles, co­written with Lapalux. The ‘Paragon’ EP, is composed of six original tracks, each unravelling its own related tale of love, loss and self­discovery. Szjerdene’s spellbindingly pure voice and stirring melodies collide seamlessly with their signature frameworks, resulting in a sublime, immersive collection.

Big things are coming for the artist with a body of new material in the pipeline, abstract in the story yet with an accessible heartbeat and that truly mesmeric voice. Szjerdene’s unique mix of soul and folk inflected vocals combined with electronic left field sounds is about as seductive as it gets.
