We’ve got love for Berlin artist Dominique Dillon de Byington around these parts. After the release of her debut album Silence Kills in 2011, the resident BPitch Control singer-songwriter played EB Festival Zagreb and became an Electronic Beats Magazine cover star. In the interview she described her approach to songwriting as means of speaking her memories out loud and judging by this delicate ballad, the first single from The Unknown, her second album due later this year, she’s stay true to her art. Like her previous hits such as “Tip-Tapping”, the genesis of her songwriting—at the piano, alone with her thoughts—is very much in evidence, as is the application of synthetic atmospheres, the synthetic chorales and sunken throbs. The video, an EB video premiere, features a bare Dillon facing away from the audience, does a fine job of giving the simultaneously naked yet obfuscated, abstracted quality of her work a visual form. Watch it above and, as is often the case with Dillon, repeated listens slowly reveals its secrets.
Don’t miss Dillon in next week’s episode of EB.TV, going live Tuesday 11th March.
The Unknown is out March 31st on BPitch Control.
