Review from Vancouver Show 6/6/16

Opening act Glockabelle‘s retro-synth cabaret has a strong playful element and childlike zeal for simple stories on vintage and exotic instruments (i.e. early Casio keyboards, drum machine and a glockenspiel.) Sung in both French and English, Annabelle Cazes performed her charming one-woman show in the presence of a stuffed tiger (honourary bassist) and a live napping drummer, whom Cazes tucked in beneath a blanket between songs about a variety of anthropomorphic animals that (respectively) have a barbecue, kiss, and fall into a swimming pool. While a clear departure from the concerts Factory Worker Media typically covers, King’s and Cazes’ performances were a thrilling reminder that the transgression of boundaries in music can occur anywhere along the genre spectrum. An inspiring example of unique creative expression.

Review from Seattle Music News 6/5/16

Opener Glockabelle, shredding up her Casio keyboards and a glockenspiel (with thimbles on all of her fingers), sent the room into a frenzied tailspin. Watching her fingers whiz across the keys is an exercise in blinking. Her playful French lyrics, her stuffed tiger, her art-punk attitude, all of it is impressive.

Impose Magazine photos from Brooklyn Bowl show 1/21/16 w/The Go! Team

a very special thanks to Kid Millions for joining me on drums at this show ✨

"The sounds of the wires electrifying. Imagination overload exploded."

a generous review of my show last month in San Francisco at The Great American Music Hall by The Bay Bridged 
"Glockabelle, whose mix of Zelda old school computer fantasy driven sounds, subtle glam rock makeup reminders and rolling thunder heavy rock storm drumming left me witnessing something rare and unique. Drawing art from everyday life, like washing machines, less you spin me right round, more musical mechanicalness, delving beyond the sounds of the wires electrifying, Glockabelle brings a colorful new spin (uh-hum) to the mundane. Not to mention, thimbles on fingers playing glockenspiel, drifting drummer to sleep. All in all, the outside is loud noise carnage, but the layers are intricate and masterful. It's imagination overload exploded, the sounds of sugar (not literal), undertone interludes of The Doors (was that just me?) and a delightfully comical leading lady makes Glockabelle an enjoyable ride through unusual talent."

Glockabelle at the Toronto Film Festival 2015

The Toronto Film Festival, Sir Salman Rushdie and Glockabelle

Glockabelle was asked to demonstrate her unique glockenspiel thimble technique on the short film “Concerning the Bodyguard” by Kasra Farahani, narrated by Salman Rushdie. Farahani explains, “When I came across Annabelle’s piece it took me a moment to realize that the beautiful piece I was hearing was in fact a Satie piece that I was actually quite familiar with. Her lovely rendition is at once austere and flourished, as well as strange and familiar. Most importantly, it was the elegance of her piece that made me seek her out and ask to use her music in my film.” You can see the trailer for "Concerning the Bodyguard" below. It is an Official Selection for the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival and will be shown this September.

Premier of "Ne Touche Pas" Video on Culture Collide

"In what feels like a Michel Gondry-directed fever dream, New York based french-speaking art punk Annabelle Cazes, aka Glockabelle strategically attacks her keyboard and glockenspiel with thimbles on each finger in the video for her song "Ne Touche Pas." Off her latest EP Wolf BBQ which came out May 19, "Ne Touche Pas" ('don't touch' in English) is both precious and haunting, a sweet electronic frenzy in a minor key."

The Go! Team's "Catch Me on the Rebound" featuring Glockabelle

Back in March, The Go! Team released their latest album "The Scene Between." Ian Parton of the Go! Team asked me to be a featured singer on the track "Catch me on the Rebound" (video below). Ian then invited me to open for the Go! Team across the U.K. and France in June 2015, saying "Glockabelle's a casiotone virtuoso. It's a dreamy match having her support the go team round the UK. can't wait to see those fingers in actionnnnn."

"High fructose pop keys and hypnotizing, undulating rhythm" says Speak Into My Goodeye

A review of my Wolf BBQ EP from "Speak Into My Goodeye."

http://speakimge.com/free-download-synth-punk-
innovator-glockabelle-drops-maddening-track-wolf-bbq/

"It’s not too often that something comes across the desk (laptop) that leaps out and grabs you as soon as you hit play. That distinction has been undeniably bestowed upon NYC-based synth-punk artist Glockabelle over the years... (her) eccentric sound can be traced back to the rather unique circumstances of her upbringing. Born to Francophone parents, Cazes possesses the ability to sing in both French and English harnessing that fact to convey and have ideas or themes land that might otherwise not be possible by barriers presented by either language. She then furthered her aesthetic by experimenting with her classical trained piano background and Casio VL-Tones.“Wolf BBQ” features high fructose pop keys and hypnotizing, undulating rhythms. Not unlike what Julian Casablancas tried to achieve with his debut album with The Voidz. Where he may have let the focus slip into over saturation of a singular idea, Glockabelle keeps you guessing."

"Glockabelle's Got Wolf BBQ" on My Spilt Milk

The New Orleans music blog features the title track off my Wolf BBQ EP as part of their weekly "Freshly Spilt Milk Series."


"An experimental track from the musician, Glockabelle has produced a work that stands at the intersection between electronic music and pop-punk sensibilities."
