Wolf BBQ Video Premier on The A.V. Club

"Her new Wolf BBQ EP showcases her art-punk, synth-pop provocateur music with gleeful abandon, while still highlighting her exquisite musicianship. The Nate Dorr-directed video for single “Wolf BBQ” pairs a spastic track with an imagined 8-bit video game, in which the wolf protagonist does exactly what you’d expect: hits up a barbecue. The music is overstimulated pop (she refers to it as “glockrock”), as though someone gave Deerhoof a bunch of cocaine. Singing in both English and French, Cazes makes the song feels like the spawn of some Ritalin-addled pop culture collision." - Alex McCown for The A.V. Club

SPIN.com - "Glockabelle's New Wolf BBQ EP is Anarchic Enchantment"

SPIN.com is premiering my Wolf BBQ EP today!!

"Proclaiming her style “glockrock,” the Francophone free-form bandleader Annabelle Cazes A.K.A. Glockabelle has crafted an intricate and beautifully composed pandemonium for her new EP Wolf BBQ. Incorporating her classical piano background with bold musical lawlessness, the New York-based Cazes — a featured instrumentalist on this year’s Go! Team album The Scene Between — experiments with synth-pop and glockenspiel within a dance-rock framework.Wolf BBQ is unanticipated adventure with each shimmer and bell glimmer on “Washing Machine” and the whimsical video game-esque “Gazelle.” - Margaret Farrell

Glockabelle featured in The Deli Magazine

On March 10, 2015, Glockabelle was featured on the home page of The Deli Magazine:

"Are you ready for another totally unique, kickass woman making music out of NYC? Glockabelle is a classically trained pianist from Paris who, like a creature from Peter Pan, plays a lyre-shaped glockenspiel using eight thimbled fingers. She also experiments with two vintage Casiotones, sings in French and describes her music as “glockrock” - but maybe "glockensp-synth" is more accurate, considering the psych tendencies. Though her songs are most often delightful and whimsical, they will also feature some dark material. For instance, her chirpy Ramone’s cover “le KKK a pris mon bébé” translates into “The KKK took my baby”. Enchanté Glockabelle! See you at Pioneer Works in Brooklyn on March 27th. - Leora Mandel"

Premier of "Fantasmagoria," first classical piece for thimble glockenspiel

On February 28th 2015, Glockabelle performed the first classical piece for thimble glockenspiel composed for her by Peruvian composer Ivonne Paredes at the Scholes Street Studio in Brooklyn, NY. Glockabelle was joined by Ms. Paredes on percussion and Sean Goldsborough on midi synthesizer.

Stop! Stop! Don't Touch!

Here's my take on the 1963 French hit single by Patricia Carli "Demain tu te maries/Arrête, arrête! Ne me touche pas" (Tomorrow you are getting married/Stop, stop! Don't touch me). This song gets 15th place in the rankings of French 45's ever sold.
