Revamped with a plugged-in edge Kay Elizabeth’s new project ‘Black Orchids’ is powerful, raw and lives within liminality… Soulful vocals soaked in a soundscape akin to the provocative, experimental edge of The Velvet Underground, Mazzy Star & PJ Harvey.
California born, London artist Kay Elizabeth, front woman for Black Orchids (vox & rhythm guitar) has created alongside musicians Magnus Box (lead baritone guitar), Alain Duchesne (bass) and Brian Hedemann (drums) this sonic world of heavy expansive riff based energy.
