POETIC AND HEARTFELT INDIETRONICA / ART POP EXPLORES THE BEAUTY AND HONEST FRAGILITY OF BEING.
DOROTHY BIRD’s MUSIC VREATES SPACES IN WHICH HER VOICE CAN SHINE A LIGHT OUT THE DARK.
USING A MIX OF ANALOUGE SYNTHS, ELECTRONIC RHYTHMS, GUITAR, STRINGS AND SKILFUL ARRANGEMENT, DOROTHY THREADS A BOLD PATH BETWEEN THE INTIMATE AND THE EPIC, THE ETHEREAL AND THE CONCRETE, FROM DEEP SUB BASS MOVEMENT TO GLISTENING VOCALS AND DELAYS AND OFTEN IN COMBINATION WITH LIVE VISUALS, SHE GUIDES HER AUDIENCES THROUGH AN ALL ENCOMPASSING AND EMOTIONAL EXPERIENCE.
