Sacre Noir - live at the Voodoo Rooms, Edinburgh

Sacre Noir
Chrysta Bell, Twin Peaks actress and longtime musical partner of David Lynch, is currently on an extensive European headlining tour. She recently sold out New York’s legendary cabaret spot, Café Carlyle. Earlier this fall, she released a new track titled “Undertow” via AWAL/Kobalt Music Recordings. The track was co-written by Chrysta Bell and Christopher Smart and produced, recorded and mixed by Alex Silva (Manic Street Preachers, Suede, Nelly Furtado).

She received widespread critical acclaim in the role of FBI Agent Tamara Preston in 2017’s return of Twin Peaks on SHOWTIME. This summer she released her sophomore album, We Dissolve, a pop record with elements of soul, rock and jazz, featuring contributions from guest artists including Adrian Utley (Portishead), keyboardist Geoff Downes (Asia, Yes) and drone metal guitarist Stephen O’Malley of Sunn O))). The album was recorded in Bristol, UK, with Mercury Prize-winning producer John Parish (PJ Harvey’s Let England Shake).

Chrysta Bell will release a new EP in spring 2018.

Press quotes:

"Her sensual, ethereal performing style resonates with [David Lynch]’s knack for blending yearning, ethereal soundscapes with trippy pop and 1950s-style guitar twang. It’s like a nightclub act from a shadow dimension, one that’s glamorous and sexy but also on the cusp of cosmic chaos. " – Wall Street Journal

"Eclectic and exciting... Poised and enigmatic... [David] Lynch couldn’t have written her story better himself. " – Billboard

“Chrysta Bell is the most rapturous embodiment of Lynch’s surrealism, guiding us beyond the physical world to an elevated state where fear and love are equally welcome and death is a journey you’re excited to take. Her show is the best thing I’ve seen at The Carlyle, transforming the space into the kind of haunt I never want to leave.” – Theater Pizzazz

With support from Sacre Noir.

Tickets on sale now from Ticketweb, The Voodoo Rooms and Tickets Scotland, priced at £20 stbf. Doors at 7.30pm. This is a standing show. Over 18 only.

Sacre Noir - live at the Safari Lounge, Edinburgh

Sacre Noir
Marilyn Carino plus special guests Sacre Noir at the Safari Lounge. Doors at 7.30pm / entry £5.

Marilyn Carino
Her saga began in the form of Mudville, a duo that produced three critically-acclaimed albums. As the singing and songwriting half, Marilyn inflamed and stunned, praised as “Nina Simone coming back from the dead to front Morcheeba." Her song “Wicked” won a 2008 Independent Music Award, and it has continued to be a signature song as she moved on from Mudville to her 2011 solo album, Little Genius and 2015’s Leaves, Sadness, Science. Her music is sexy and thick, her voice an affecting instrument with an elegant grittiness, soaring above violent organs and chunky beats.
Carino does all the recording, mixing, producing and plays all the instruments herself, her personality imbued in the smoky-dark production, expressive singing and themes that dig for hope. "I think happiness is about a person freeing themselves, and that’s the idea I’m interested in. We’ve got to feel free to fall down and be a mess, maybe fuck the wrong people. We can fail 99 times and keep coming back to get it right on the 100th. The solution to the hardening of the world around us is personal human revolution.”

Sacre Noir
Sacre Noir are a Scottish based outfit, centred around vocalist / producer Carrie Beattie. Initially conceived as a solo project, Sacre Noir released a trilogy of EPs before bringing in the talents of Phil Lock on guitar and Alexis Beattie on electronic drums to perform live and record the debut LP 'Her Volatile Condition.' After performing shows around Europe in 2011 the band launched their sophomore LP 'Sinking Into Darkness' and debut single / video 'She Can't Take It' in the summer of 2012.
From 2012 to 2014 Sacre Noir released two more singles from the Sinking Into Darkness LP - 'Rue Crimée' and 'It's Too Late Now' alongside more live shows across Europe. 2015 saw the release of new single / video 'Listen To Me' - the video being created in collaboration with film-maker MeltedBeetle. In 2016 Sacre Noir will release their third and final album titled 'Nothing Falls Apart' on Savage Recordings. The LP was accompanied by two further singles / videos from the release - 'A Rhythm Between Work and Sleep' and 'Rebels and Loners.' As a vocalist Carrie has also collaborated under the Sacre Noir moniker with various notable producers - recent features have included work with various hip-hop artists currently working in Scotland including MOG and UVBeatz (both Powercut Productions), Conscious Route (True Hold Records) and MC duo Werd & Deeko (Sons of Scotland).
