Estère

Nous avons découvert l’artiste Estère le week-end dernier au festival Pimpinella, et vous invitons à faire de même.
A travers son album, pourtant sorti il y a déjà presque 2 ans, ou en live comme par ex à Lyon ce jeudi 30 juin au Transbordeur

Accompagnée de sa meilleure amie Lola, une MPC 1000, la beatmakeuse et chanteuse Estère a déjà enthousiasmé ses terres neo-zélandaises sur les ondes comme sur scène avec son univers décalé et exceptionnel.

C’est dans sa chambre, en pyjama, qu’elle compose et produit ses perles, mélange de basse, de synthé, de batterie, de guitare, d’ harmonies vocales, de clavier, de sifflets, d’applaudissements, de kazoo, et plein d’autres choses fantasques, dont le groove inspiré nous porte vers un univers classieux chargé de finesse et de légerté. Univers musical qualifié par Estère elle-même d’Electric Blue Witch-Hop.
En mars 2015, Estère sort son premier album éponyme sur le label français PRØSPECT, petit frère du label NØ FØRMAT!, dédié à l’émergence de jeunes artistes.

Estère is a girl with an MPC she calls Lola. With Lola, Estère samples and records a mixture of bass, synth, drums, guitar, vocal harmonies, kazoo, cutlery drawers and anything else that tickles her fancy then layers the production with pulsating rhythms and evocative melodies that adhere to her own genre dubbed – Electric Blue Witch-Hop.

Onstage Estère is joined by a number of different mechanical personalities that she terms her ‘ machine band’. Together they create a unique high energy showcase of what happens when music mixes with the imagination.

Drawing inspiration from the evolution of reptiles, imaginary boyfriends and cultural identity amongst many other things, Estère delivers her songs with a voice that has been described as rich toned and elastic.

Acclaimed as being a one-of-a-kind performer, Estère’s reputation for exciting, playful performances has seen her open for international artists including Erykah Badu, Flume, Kitty Daisy & Lewis, Aloe Blacc, Morcheeba, Baths, Ikonika, KT Tunstall and has put her on international stages in cities and festivals through-out Australia, South Korea, Denmark, New Caledonia, UK and Europe.

In October 2013 Estère embarked on the Red Bull Prodigy collaborative project with Washington D.C/ New York Producer Oddisee, which saw them spend two weeks together in a studio writing music. They subsequently released three songs: Flashlight, Curtains Down and Noon.

In April 2014 Estère released her debut self produced album via Bandcamp which was released in Europe the following year by French tastemaker label No Format. Off the back of her first ever European tour, Estère began 2015 playing at a variety of New Zealand’s largest music festivals and released her debut remix EP ‘New Species’ in October. After a succesful Australian tour in November 2015, Estère is currently in the process of writing her new album – set to be released sometime in 2016.
