Barby - Derech Kibuts Galuyot 52, Tel Aviv,
Zuz Ajansi presents:
The Brazilian / German musician will be performing for the first time in Israel, Barby 9.5.
Dillon broke into world awareness when she released her debut album with Thirteen Thirtyfive (which has accumulated over 37 million views on YouTube) in 2011 and immediately marked her as a musical promise to be noticed. This promise came true when her debut album, This Silence Kill, as well as the sequel The Unknown, released in 2014, were received with sympathy and acclaim by critics and audiences.
The two albums are considered one piece, since they tell a coherent story, as is always reflected in her performances, in which the melodic and dark songs intertwine and create a whole sequence.
In 2016 the two albums reunited in the impressive album Live at Haus der Berliner Festspiele, in which a women’s choir accompanies Dillon. “I felt the need to work with poetry, and to create another layer that breathes between electronics and me,” she explains.
At the end of 2017, Dillon released her third album, Kind, which she calls “an album of love,” and is completely separated from her previous work. It radiates a new warmth that comes from the use of brass instruments and presents another facet of the musician.
Later this year, Dillon plans to release an EP called “When Breathing Feels Like Drowning”, which she worked with Swiss producer Klangkünstler Samuel Savenberg, featuring new materials and chilling piano versions combined with electronic sound. The new piece, as opposed to Dillon’s warm and optimistic previous album, is expected to expose despair and cruel abuse.
Dillon will perform her first solo tour in 2019, during which she will be accompanied by a piano for the first time to Israel for one performance in Barby.
Dylan is brought to Israel by the independent production company Zuz Elegance, which is also responsible for the arrival of Cigarettes After Sex, Peaches & Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Bombino’s upcoming performance.
