Susie Says! is beyond excited to announce two special performances by Mercury-prize nominated avant-pop artist and producer Cate Le Bon.

Cate last visited New Zealand in 2019 on a rather epic sold-out tour, playing on grand piano to rapt audiences in Dunedin, Oamaru, Christchurch, Wellington and Auckland. For Cates upcoming two shows she will be bringing a full five-piece band, a selection of awesome musicians from across the globe.

Cates live performances are riveting, electric, spellbinding; Brooklyn Vegan agrees, describing her two sold-out New York City shows as mesmerising. Effortlessly blending a diverse range of styles and influences into a unified whole, Cate Le Bon’s latest live show is a masterclass, says The Scotsman, while The Telegraph experienced the climax of Cates shows as rapturous.

Cate s performances will feature material from her sixth album Pompeii, as well as songs from 2019’s Mercury-Prize nominated Reward. Global music media is agog about Pompeii: Released in February this year, Pompeii has been called a wondrous... dreamscape whose locked-in grooves approach the unknowable at slanted angles by Pitchfork; high art spiked with an unpredictable liveliness gushes Stereogum, and an album of the year says The Guardian, while Canadas music magazine Exclaim! raves “Pompeii lands somewhere between Hejira-era Joni Mitchell and the solo work of Stereolabs Laetitia Sadier — rarified air where Le Bon undoubtedly belongs.”

Written primarily on bass, Cate plays every instrument (except drums and saxophones) and recorded the album largely by herself with long-term collaborator and co-producer Samur Khouja in Cardiff, Wales. The construction of Pompeii’ consists of synth sounds from the Yamaha DX7, amongst others; basslines inspired by 1980s Japanese city pop, designed to bring joyfulness and abandonment; almost tactile vocal arrangements supporting the melodic fabric of each song; long-term collaborator Stella Mozgawa’s (Warpaint) “jazz-thinking” percussion patched in from quarantined Australia; and Khouja’s encouraging presence.

Dont miss these two shows by one of the most interesting and influential musicians and producers of today.
