Bell Lungs + Natalia Beylis : Belfast 9th December 2018

 

Framewerk and Yoshiwara Collective presents Bell Lungs and Natalia Beylis. Come and join us for an evening of dreamy-voiced misty melodies and spacey electric piano.

Bell Lungs (Scotland)
https://bell-lungs.bandcamp.com/

Bell Lungs is from Scotland, UK where she has been building an excellent live reputation and carving out her unique post-folk sound using layered vocals, electric violin, guitar, tuned percussion, field recordings and effects pedals since 2016. Her music is atmospheric; a shifting soundscape that incorporates snippets of songs with field recordings to create a live show which is inherently transcendental, musing upon rural idylls, post-industrial heartlands and online culture infused with psychedelic, improvisational and folk elements.

David Keenan of The Wire deemed Bell Lungs’ vocals “elemental”, and RaveChild said she had “a truly remarkable voice, like cut quartz”.

In March 2017, Sheffield-based microlabel Sonido Polifonico released a split 7″ lathe cut single with Pefkin on one side and Bell Lungs on the other with”Mosul Dam”, which was described as “disarming and demurring” by Losing Today blog.

Bell Lungs has supported Richard Youngs, Sarah Davachi, Richard Dawson, Diane Cluck, Sharron Kraus, Marshall Allen, This is the Kit and Martin Carthy. She has recorded with Pefkin, Viking Moses, Golden Ghost, LT Leif, Trembling Bells and Washington Irving. Performing has taken her from the UK to the USA, Germany, Spain and Italy.

Natalia Beylis (Ireland)

Born in Kiev, Ukraine and reared in Baltimore, Maryland, Natalia Beylis now lives in a farmhouse in the middle of a woodland in Leitrim, Ireland where she forges compositions built upon the noises that emerge from the deep dark thicket surrounding her home.

Natalia is also the founding member of the mighty Woven Skull. When not shredding the mandolin with Woven Skull, Natalia also plays in Divil A’ Bit and Three Eyed Makara. Natalia has done collaborations and improvisational performances with Agathe Max, Aine O’Dwyer, Tor Invocation Band and United Bible Studies amongst others.

Her solo live set on this evening will be her spacey electric piano in stereo set.
