Gazelle Twin’s critically-acclaimed Pastoralalbum is an intense exploration of a divided England, taking a look behind the picture postcard image of our countryside.
In the video for Pastoral track, Glory, Gazelle Twin’s monstrous jester character stalks the woodland landscape around the Epping Forest pollards, a knight falls to the ground screaming. This is bold new folk music rendered with drum machines and synths, and a visceral exploration of the state of Britain today.
Gazelle Twin will come to Mirth Marvel & Maud with support from prolific Waltham Forest resident and experimental musician Helm.
Pastoral is part of The People's Forest season - a series of events exploring our relationship with Epping Forest, interrogating the deep bond we have with forests and woodland, and how this relationship is culturally determined.
Elizabeth Bernholz, better known by her stage name Gazelle Twin, is a British electronic music composer, producer and musician.
Forged in a rural idyll in Middle-England, Gazelle Twins' new album Pastoral exhumes England’s rotten past, and shines a torch over its ever-darkening present.
Helm is Luke Younger, a London-based sound artist and musician.
He has released five studio albums and three EPs of textural experimental music, exploring a relationship between acoustic, electronic and real-world sounds.
His first album ‘To An End’ was released on his own label ALTER in 2010. Influenced by 20th century electroacoustic music and Britain’s esoteric post-industrial underground, the record contained two long-form pieces that mixed haunting, respiratory-themed tape music with warm meditative ambience.
