Cate Le Bon
With her downright haunting voice and death-driven lyrics, Cate Le Bon has often been accused of Thanatos. That’s fair, but rather than wallowing in her misery, this singer-songwriter from Wales manages to make deathand everything elseseem quite lovely. Singing in Welsh and English, Le Bon released her first EP in 2008 and has been quickly building her repertoire in the years since. The jangly guitar, bagpipe-toned synths, and upbeat rhythms provide her latest release, CryK, with a more folk or folkloric feel and suggest that she’s ready to put more life into her songs.
