TALK NORMAL / Since their formation in 2007, the duo of Sarah Register and Andrya Ambro have crafted a unique blend of driving noise rock. Feedback-drenched guitar tones and jarring rhythms are common in Talk Normal's surprisingly songful tunes, producing a sound informed by their predecessors (Cocteau Twins, Velvet Underground, Laurie Anderson & Creatures), but strikingly new.
ROMAN HIELE is an Antwerp-based electronic musician. Studying stand up bass in the passed helped him to enrich his knowledge on jazz harmony and it's musical freedom. His music consists of spacious melodies, wooly chords and saturated footwork-like drumparts. Think analogue but also crunchy digital. As influences Hiele shifts from guys like E. Dolphy, to G. Boneschi, to J. Stinson. Right now he is finishing the last bits of his debut vinyl that will be released the 31st of May on Ekster, a new label based in Antwerp.
