IZZY LINDQWISTER MOON-BEAM CREAM
Released April 7th on Smoky Carrot Records
Playing live at Old Blue Last, London on April 14th
Swedish chanteuse Izzy Lindqwister releases her debut album “Moon Beam Cream” on April 7th on Smoky Carrot records.
The London-based singer began singing in church choirs from a young age, and as a teenager she discovered the blues, soul & rock’n’roll through Stevie Klasson, Johnny Thunders’ guitarist, of whom she says “He would sometimes invite me to guest at one of his shows in small Stockholm blues venues. Being too young to get into those sort of places I had to wait in the car and sneak in via the side door just to sing a song or two.”
A few years later she moved to Paris and founded the band Rodeo Massacre before moving to London where she started her own solo project whilst collaborating with acts such as Cornershop (having previously been Tjinder from Cornershop’s babysitter!) Moodoïd, SSG and Towerbrown. Last year she released her first EP Pyjama Party. 2014 saw Izzy being tipped by BBC6 Music’s Lauren Laverne as “one to watch for 2014” following the release of Moon Beam Cream’s first single, the haunting Cruisin After Dark in January.
Recorded in Paris, “Moon Beam Cream” features 12 tracks including a hypnotic cover version of Yazoo’s “Don’t Go”. Tracklisting goes like this:
Intro Izuki / Crusin After Dark / Cosmosonic Hipshaker / Angry Bird / Don’t Go / Diggin For Love / Like A Heavy Stone / Ez T / Getaway Ground / Diplomatic Behaviour / Beta Waves / Outro Izuki
Izzy’s sound is hard to pigeonhole. Varyingly described as everything from “Cosmic Pop” to “Space Soul”, whatever you call it, this record is the nexus of all of Izzy’s artistic energies and the point of arrival of the many paths she’s been walking. Izzy’s deep, soulful and powerful voice belies an impressive dictionary of genres, from Motown Soul to Electro, Reggae, 70’s Disco, Gospel and Psychedelia.
Izzy Lindqwister plays a one-off gig on 14th of April at The Old Blue Last in Shoreditch.
