Laurence Revey

(Website)

Laurence Revey uses the spoken word like an instrument, transforming various emotions into audible sounds, sometimes gentle, sometimes throaty, and integrating them into her music until words and music become one, hence creating a unique musical experience. Even though the singer is originally from the Canton of Valais, working with great producers such as Arto Lindsay (David Byrne of the Talking Heads, Laurie Anderson), Iceland’s Valgeir Sigurdsson (Björk), Dr. Das (Asian Dub Foundation), Hector Zazou (Real World), and especially Bardi Johansson (Bang Gang), has never really connected her music to the more traditional one of her native Valais. Laurence Revey, firmly rooted in the Swiss Alps with mind soaring high in the musical stratosphere, surfs between electronic pop and rock. Her music often brings to mind the sounds of Goldfrapp, Massive Attack and sometimes even Kate Bush, without ever losing the rhythmics or skimping on a solid musical base. Her music bridges the gap between experimentally open technology and the peculiar; music in search of artistic simplicity and honesty, without compromise; a mix between gentleness and surprising passages that claw at you.
