The Wine Cellar: Nicole Andrews, Lilo Peaks and Valere

Live at The Wine Cellar: Nicole Andrews, Lilo Peaks and Valere

Three unique singer-songwriters and synth wielding female performers hit the stage at The Wine Cellar in Auckland for one night only.

The line up includes:
Wellington indie pianist and synth slayer, Nicole Andrews, whose style is reminiscent of Tori Amos and PJ Harvey Her debut album, I n the Shallows was described by T he Listener Magazine as “all rolling piano and rich, epically angst-ridden vocals.”

Auckland based electronic singer-songwriter, Valere, whose sounds bring an electronic mix of soul and synth. Showcasing a palate of warm new wave sounds, pop melodies and R&B beats, Valere sends listeners into a “melacholic daze” [Radio Republic review].

Lilo Peaks, whose synth-pop style blends acoustic and electronic elements to create a gritty and explorative sound. The Auckland based artist explores concepts of intimacy in a time where computer screens keep the world at arm’s length, to what it is to be half-loved, to the panicked fear of failure.

Reviews:
Nicole An drews - Listener Magazine album review:
Quote:
“It’s tough to shift the Tori Amos comparisons for Portland-raised, now Wellington based Nicole Andrews - all rolling piano and rich, epically angst-ridden vocals. The powerful string-backed Pixelated Roses, with its anger, ashes and warning to “run and hide,” is a highlight, but for those who like their femininity fierce and fearless the pace doesn’t drop until Andrews calls Time at the end.”

Valere - Radio Republic review:
Quote:
“[...] sends listeners into a melancholic daze [...] a potent sound that can easily warrant old and
new fans’ attention.”

Lilo Peaks - Gold Flake Paint review:
Quote:
“Combining sparse, atmospheric synth sounds with a vocal that’s almost like overhearing someone singing in the shower, the experimental elements work together well, especially when the glitchy beats and somewhat unexpected brass comes in about halfway through. After such a languid, downtempo beginning this powerful new melody lifts the song and brings it to a memorable conclusion.”
