noemienours + Roy Montgomery (more info soon)
Inspired in its early days by Nobel-prize winners Herta Müller or J.M. Coetzee’s depiction and account of totalitarianism and segregation, noemienours developed through her work a criticism of anthropo-centrism, and of mankind’s prejudiced entitlement, told through the sole point of view of bears, with a meditative horizon as possible overcoming of species-, class- and gender-wars.
Albeit its deep meaning is with no doubt far too deep for the usual barbaric male-centered music business and she might be evolving in a league of her own, her music still follows the same kind of sensitive line developed by musicians such as David Pajo (Slint, Papa M…) or Nicola Hodgkinson (Hood, New North Wales,…). The obsessive, unusually slow and thought-provoking nature of her music has also drawn comparisons to bands such as Earth, Grouper or Low. Although „bears (themselves) have better to do than performing shows“, noemienours, after several years of reclusive creative work and 3 DIY vinyl releases, will perform a longer electric set for the first time.
