Dutch trio Daisy Bell’s music varies from indietronics to atmospheric soundscapes. With a collection of acoustic and electronic instruments, live sampling, live sound manipulation and harmony vocals, Daisy Bell switches from soft and intimate to a raw and vibrant wall of Sound.
On stage, the band is lit up by large projections of poems by William Blake (1757-1827), which they use as their lyrics. Daisy Bell debuted with a concert for VPRO radio (NL), broadcast live via satellite in 25 countries. Shortly after that they released their first songs on pink vinyl on WORM Records, were the support act for CocoRosie and played several gigs including Faust’s prestigious Avantgarde Festival (Germany).
In July 2014, they have finished their debut album, which was recorded at the Hilvaria Studios with engineer Sandor Caron (Knalpot), after which it was mixed and produced by Darren Allison (producer of Efterklang, Amatorski, Belle & Sebastian, Spiritualized a.m.m.) in London. It was mastered by Uwe Teichert at Elektropolis in Brussels. Dyane, Evelien and Richard share a background in performing, producing and composing for the stage, installation and multidisciplinary art, film, theatre and dance and share a passion for genre-transcending music Projects. The name ‘Daisy Bell’ is derived from the first song that was ‘sung’ by a computer in 1961.
