Estère (NZ)

Electric Blue Witch-Hop


Estère is the empress to the land of « electric blue witch-hop ». Her best friend, an MPC player nicknamed Lola, enabled her to make her own melodies and loop them into a recordable product, whether alone in her bedroom or in front of hundreds of festival goers. Her songs are a mix between bass, synth, drums, guitar, vocal harmony, key, whistles, kazoo and a lot of other whimsical stuffs. An original universe filled with sweetness and delicacy.

With Lola the MPC, she already played in New-Zealand, Australia, South Korea, Europe, including notorious festivals like Jeonju Festival Internation Sori, Ulsan World Music Festival, Festival International de Musique d'Aarhus, Melbourne Let Them Eat Cake and Glastonbury. In october 2013, Estère joined the project called « Red Bull Prodigy » in collaboration with the producer and rapper Oddissee, from Washington DC and New-York. They spend two weeks writing in the studio, and released three songs : Flashlight, Curtains Down and Noon. During last year, the musician opened for international artists like Erykah Badu, Morcheeba, Bains, Ikonika and KT Tunstall.
In march 2015, Estère released her first album on the french label PRØSPECT, the little brother of the label NØ FØRMAT!, which is dedicated to emergence of young artists. Most of her songs like Culture Clash, Cruel Charlie, I Spy, Thoughts, Patchwork Solider, Reptilian Journey et Flash Light (feat Oddisee) were played on New-Zealander radios a lot and were featured on international blogs like Afro Punk, Disco Naiveté and Portals.
