Support: Laura Elle
Laura Elle is a Barcelona-born, Berlin-based fat, queer singer-songwriter. She makes intimate, introspective music with her soulful voice at the center of her art. Influenced by artists such as Chªarlotte Day Wilson, Sen Senra or Biig Piig, Laura Elle’s sonic world oscillates between r&b, pop, and jazz, and forms a deep, rich backdrop for her experiences with mental health, love, life and death. Her music, made to soothe herself, aims to connect with fragile, sensitive wom*n, holding an emotional, safe space for community. Laura’s debut EP ‘sh*t i deny’, coming out in March 2022, is a collection of tributes to fatness, feminism, grief and mental health.
In their project Æ, Indonesian vocalist and producer Akila and half-Bolivian, half-Danish vocalist and instrumentalist Elias explore the dualities they have been faced with as aliens in both their passport countries and in their home base of Berlin. Struggles with sexuality, gender and post-colonialism are very real in the lives of both members, blooming in their songwriting that connects topics such as Indonesia’s independence and love. In their artistic process, Æ share their inner conflicts and sorrow. With an awareness of each other’s longing, they reveal their creative understanding and pour it into music. For Æ, this process is both inspiring and liberating. As a result, Æ’s music expresses feelings of comfort, solace and support, but also melancholy, in a form that can best be described as electronic pop or alternative R&B.
