Keto - 18th May - The Bodega - The Bodega - Nottingham

Keto: the hypnotic orchestration of Leah Sanderson.Keto's debut record, Blackened Pool, recorded in the eerily serene setting of the Outer Hebrides with support from the PRS Foundation, Blackened Pool is a collection of incredibly dark, minimalist songs, with dreamy backdrops. Detuned nylon string guitar and distinctive vocals recorded singularly on one mic form the bedrock of these tracks. Add, then, sparse piano, violin, electric guitars, swirling melodies, textures and percussion then listen as these songs rise and fall between the sublime, where bleakness and enduring hopefulness collide.‘The minimal yet utterly compelling music she makes sounds as outside of time as her voice.’ - Joe Banks - The Quietus. https://thequietus.com/articles/25819-keto-black-pool-album-review2019 is set to be a interesting year for Keto, with the release of her debut album ‘Blackened Pool’ in October 2018.
