Mesadorm // Dear Robot // Kapil Seshasayee

Mesadorm play their first ever Brighton show in support of their eagerly awaited debut album 'Heterogaster' to be released on 11th May. Support from upcoming alt rock band Dear Robot and Kapil Seshasayee.

Formed in Bristol in 2015 by five longstanding friends, Mesadorm is the new collaborative project of Blythe Pepino formerly of London Art Pop trio, Vaults. Each member of Mesadorm is a high calibre performer and writer, bringing an array of musical concepts and timbres to the emotional landscape of Pepino's lyrics.After a few years testing the mainstream stage with a major record deal Pepino has moved back to her roots as a leftfield rock and electronica songwriter. As well as drawing influence from contemporary electronic passions like Caribou, Grizzly Bear and Sylvan Esso, Pepino also draws from late 60s and early 70s folk and popular music such as the song-smithery of Carole King, Neil Young and Joni Mitchell. The song content for ‘Heterogaster’ is based around ideas of family, sex, trust and disconnection, using rich vocal harmonies, beautifully layered to musically represent these issues.Their writing sits somewhere between the domestic observation of Suzanne Vega and the powerful, elemental other-worldliness of Bjork.

“I have the privilege of listening to a LOT of great new music, but the new Mesadorm album Heterogaster is quite remarkable." - Richard Pitt, BBC Introducing

“the best tune we’ve played on the show in 2018”  Sam Bonham, BBC Introducing

“Melodies that originate in the left field, 'Tell Me' has a warmth that can't be imitated; soothing, genuine, and perplexing, it's a real jewel.”  - Clash Magazine
