Yr Lovely Dead Moon is a musio/poetic project led by Rachel Margetts with collaborations from Joe Campbell, Greta Buikute and Ben Osborn. A juxtaposition of live acoustic and processed beat-heavy composition drives absurdist, spoken narratives. This is cosmic lounge, Post-punk-techno horror, sexy blue jam.
Yr Lovely dead moon has shared the stage with artists such as Lydia Lunch, Charles Haywood, Emperor X and Group A. She has performed as Yr lovely Dead Moon and with her band FITH in venues and festivals such as Berghain Kantina, about.blank, Schokoladen, Islington Mill, Supernormal Festival and Festival no.6.
Yr Lovely Dead Moon’s new album “Physical Corpses” will be released in Winter 2018.
WANDA Says on Yr Lovely Dead Moon:
“This is cosmic-inflected lounge music; troubadour heroism, a soundtrack for a virtual film. Abstract, glitched out and layered with languid rhythms, melodic refrains and spiralling clarinet,we are slowly and gradually beamed into a world ‘beyond’ this world, into the mind of a refracted, and deliriously, schizo-lucid woman-narrator, whose oracular storytelling takes us beyond the urban, technocratic apocalypse, to a world of unknown contours, and insubstantial visions. Yr Lovely Dead Moon recalls the epic poetry and narratives of messianic seers and troubadours. An ultra slowed down, and refracted, North West version of Patti Smith’s Piss Factory unfolds. From work, desire, dread. The capitalist enslavement of body and mind, to ecstatic oneiric escape. The human and non-human meet in an eerie dance of electronic and organic delirium.”
