Earlier this summer, Xeresa dropped their new self-titled 12 track LP, an ambitious project led by Nicolas Pierre Wardel, who does vocals, bass, guitars and programming, with contributions by Tom Lugo’s and Chris Webber’s on guitar, and featuring vocals by Dani Mari, Claudi Verdecia (New Greed) and Demi Haynes (Seashine). Brighton’s (UK) bevy plays indie-pop electronica with some obvious shoegaze hints that are often arranged in a minimal approach–a gentle sense of urban music. This fall, Xeresa released the new Reality video featuring vocals and also directed by Dani Mari. Beautiful, ethereal, and a little nostalgic voice by the multi-genre music producer and visual artist. Reality is a mid-tempo gem which includes spacey sounds and cinematic strings and a quite dreamy tendency all over it.
So, if you are moved by the hi-tech sounds and visuals of the song you may let them attract you into their musical atmosphere inspired by classical minimalist composers, Steve Reich or Slowdive.
Hey people I'm Mike D from Athens GR (43). I'm a sound engineer, radio producer, and certainly a music "freak." I couldn't be anything else, you see: I grew up in a musical home (my father was a composer), and wanted to be a rock-star but wasn't patient enough to study music. Instead, I studied the technical stuff and went really "nuts" when I started writing articles about the bands and artists I love. It all started back in 2002 in a printed magazine (Sound Maker - RIP) and I still do it because I really like sharing my libraries, discotheque, info, connections, knowledge, and all. I'm involved in all "waves" music (new wave/darkwave/post-punk/shoegaze), punk, industrial, EBM, alternative rock, indie, electronic, avant-garde/ experimental/ freestyle...but on the other hand I can easily throw a classical CD in the player, or a jazzy tune, or...ok you get it: Music! I'd like to read your comments on my writing because you know how it goes, and you all know the glorious song by Placebo,"Without You I'm Nothing"...Thanx and enjoy Freedom and Music, Loud!
