Her new EP “One” presents another quantum leap forward for the critically acclaimed artist and producer, a Sphinx-like game of sonic hide and seek that conceals as much as it reveals. Ping ponging from the pure exhilaration and release of “WIZZ” to the unbridled rage and frustration of “FREEZE”, it synthesizes Chloe’s diaristic lyrics into pounding club anthems. On “ZERO FIVE STARS” meanwhile, Chloe goes even deeper, plumbing depths of doubt and self-hatred like never before – imagine an even more lacerating early PJ Harvey and you will be somewhat close.
From the high energy assault of her recent remix of Lady Gaga’s ‘Stupid Love’ for her Dawn of Chromatica project to the haunting, strung-out, spacious compositions of her early releases, COUCOU CHLOE’s repertoire lives at the dark heart of club music. Her chaotic live performances have seen her annihilate venues across three continents, most recently for Berlin’s infamous Herrensauna and in a special A/V capsule for Sonar Festival. A founding member of the influential NUXXE collective alongside Sega Bodega and Shygirl, COUCOU CHLOE’s work has been lauded by the press and fashion industry internationally, seeing her shot for magazines like Highsnobiety, i-D and the cover of L’Officiel Paris, and collaborate with design houses like Prada, Gucci and Lanvin.
The single opened up a path for Morgan to tour widely around Europe, North America and beyond for the next five years. Throughout his whole career, Morgan has performed in a wide array of venues from underground parties to established music festivals and arts institutions, such as SXSW, Lollapalooza, the New Museum in New York, MoMA PS1, Brooklyn Museum, and Art Basel in Switzerland. Morgan has also performed alongside Gorillaz for their 'Humanz' world tour and opened for artists like Lana Del Ray and Die Antwoord. Artistry Morgan’s style of music can best be described as genre-defying and his multidisciplinary career as self-made. His character Zebra Katz originally surfaced through his thesis project at the Eugene Lang College of Liberal Arts at the New School. Making music became an extension of Morgan’s interest in theater and culture studies, identity obsession, and the lively New York City underground arts scene around him. (VOGUE)
Throughout his career, Morgan has openly spoken out against the "queer rap" genre coined by Pitchfork and other publications used to classify Zebra Katz, and artists like Mykki Blanco and Le1f. * While stating that if it weren't for his sexuality, he'd be generally classified as a "rapper," Morgan claims the inherently homophobic genre pigeonholes musicians. ** Morgan’s style of music is minimalist, futuristic, doomy and left-of-center. (PITCHFORK) Morgan released his mixtapes Champagne and DRKLNG independently, along with two EPS, Winter Titty and Nu Renegade, a collaboration with Leila Arab. In the years 2012-2019, he has released a total of 21 music videos, cementing his profile as a self-made, self-managed, multidisciplinary artist, thriving despite the lack of backing from a major label or production office.
An equally prolific visual and performance artist, Peaches has directed over twenty of her own videos, curated a stunning book of Holger Talinski photographs documenting her life on and off the road, and participated in some of modern art’s most prominent gatherings, including Art Basel Miami and the Venice Biennale. In 2010, she unveiled Peaches Does Herself, an electro-rock opera spanning material from throughout her career that was arranged into a loosely autobiographical narrative. It morphed into a film of the same title, which premiered at the TIFF in 2012 before traveling to more than 70 festivals around the world. Peaches continued her foray into theater with a one-woman production of Jesus Christ Superstar, redubbed Peaches Christ Superstar, which continues to be performed at theaters and festivals globally and was featured in 2016 as part of the Kammerspiele Munich repertoire. Ever eclectic, she sang the title role in a Berlin production of Monteverdi's epic 17th-century opera L’Orfeo and joined forces with Yoko Ono on a recreation of her iconic 1964 performance Cut Piece at the 2013 Meltdown Festival in London. Ono later said that Cut Piece will never be performed again with such eloquence” [..]
