Preaching From the Pews: Roxanne de Bastion

roxannedebOfficial SiteFaceBookMySpace

Roxanne de Bastion‘s music is characterised by her laid back, minimalist guitar and intelligent lyrics, shaped by her enchanting voice, creating a whimsical landscape littered with video game references, introspection and an underlying current of innocence that allows her to deliver some incredible lyrical barbs. This is an impressive collection of vocally driven compositions and, much like her stylistic influences (Bob Dylan and Regina Spektor), they demand the listener’s undivided attention for Roxanne’s masterful song writing skills to take full effect.

Roxanne grew up in Berlin where she began her love affair with music and performance at the tender age of 10. She moved over to the UK in 2007, equipped only with a guitar and a one-way ticket, and she’s never looked back. Her previous single “One Morning” was accompanied by an enchanting video, shot in her hometown of Berlin, and was extremely well received by BBC 6 Music.

Roxanne’s self-titled debut EP is due out on July 4th through Zube Records. Her lead single “Indie Electro Pop” is available to download from here, and you can view the video below.
