Enticing you into all kinds of wrongdoings or to reframe that thought: FUN. Is this smouldering, seductively perfect Jazz number that soars and screeches via Jaleel Shaw’s hot blasts of not-so-cool saxophone commanding your attention amid Sylvia Black’s devastating vocal delivery – all shock and much awe – plus Brazilian Girls’ Aaron Johnston deftly punctuating drums and percussion. Designed for subterranean adventures, preferably after midnight has chimed, the title points in the direction of a full album, while also to be located in the Dean Dempsey film ‘Deadman’s Barstool’.
Its our pleasure to announce this Premier at Magazine Sixty.
Leaving Paris is the haunting collaboration between electronic jazz-pop chanteuse Vanessa Daou and experimental electronic / IDM composer James Willard (aka Brokenkites) on KID Recordings. Inspired by author Collin Kelley’s novel ‘Leaving Paris’ (Part Three of ‘The Venus Trilogy’), the meditative torch-song conveys a sense of longing and romantic nostalgia for the eternal City of Lights. Daou’s bare lithe vocals and intimate poetic lyrics hover seductively over Brokenkites ambient electronic textures which coalesce into a delicate melodic epiphany that’s both hedonistic and transcendent.
