Welsh singer-songwriter Cate Le Bon’s quirky, yet charming folk-pop has landed her on tour dates with St. Vincent, performances at the Glastonbury and Latitude festivals, and even a spot on Gruff Rhys’ (of Super Furry Animals) record label. Her haunting lyrics (many inspired by past pet death experiences) stand in contrast to her airy Nico-like vocals and minimalistic music, a combination that makes for beautifully compelling and intriguing songs.
Featured song: “Fold The Cloth”
CYRK is the new album by Cate Le Bon.
