SONGS OF GOLD & SHADOW
« From Paris, Cleo T performs music that sits somewhere between ethereal folk and dark cabaret. Her debut album 'Songs of Gold and Shadow' was produced by John Parish, probably best known for his work with PJ Harvey. Lyrics written byRobert Wyatt especially for Cleo T feature in the album's epilogue entitled 'So Long Ago Yesterday'. »
It is a Far Away journey .
Cleo’s songs blend symbolist harmonies and ancient Europe tones into dark romanticism and shimmering poetry .
Teasing like the glamorous divas of a Parisian golden age, Cleo takes us into a mystical ride, a walk with love and death, " A bout de souffle", for a lace corset and high heels demoiselle.
A delightful decadence, a la Nouvelle Vague.
A glamorous cabaret, made of Spleen and Ideal.
« Songs of Gold & Shadow » takes us into a mystical ride, a nocturne in blue & gold, reminding us of Alice sleeping in the Peacock Room, or Salome dancing in the last chance Saloon.
Dark eyes, red lips and gold in her hair, Cleo. T has a band of astounding musicians playing mysterious sirens’ songs, rebours, through the looking glass .
