Luxembourg-based singer-songwriter Bartleby Delicate released his debut EP Deadly Sadly Whatever on May 14th via Listenrecords. The EP was produced in an exclusively digital exchange with producer friend Napoleon Gold from Brussels, for mixing the songs traveled to producer John Foyle (Ibeyi, Sampha, FKA Twigs) in London. The EP was mastered by Thomas Harsem (Intergalactic Lovers, Faces on TV) in Sweden. The new single Plastic Flowers is out now.
Bartleby Delicate navigates the currents of contemporary folk and loop-based electronics with impressive ease – and a sound playing in a field of its own. He merges the polyphonic expanse of his voice with subtle arpeggios, melancholy piano chords and field recordings. His forward-thinking compositions are driven forward by the irresistible drive of the acoustic guitar – and the underlying pulse of a human heart. Bartleby Delicate’s music is meant to give strength and peace, to be support in challenging times, to help to endure and reflect difficult circumstances.
