Polish LeeDVD is a singer/songwriter in the field of electronic music and with Lenajgiwittuju she has a promising debut. Scary popmusic with a twist.

AudioTong is for me a complete new label, but they seem to have been around for a while releasing experimental electronics, improvisation and modern classical music. With artists coming from all over Europe, America and Asia they have released a wide spectrum of music. Besides releasing music they also organize and promote events for new music in Poland.

From Poland AudioTong brings us the release of a young lady Brenda LeeDVD. Her first output is a release called Lenajgiwittuju that comes in 6 mp3 tracks. From the information that is spread around the internet on her we do not learn that much (my Polish is not that good, if not completely absent), but let's just admit that this much information is not really needed. The music on this release speaks for what it is.

On Lenajgiwittuju we hear a combination of electronics and vocals. Some people might directly think of Björk when a woman is involved with these kind of words, but it's nothing like that. Where the Icelandic forest nymph is mostly innocent sounding this release is nothing like that. LeeDVD scares me from the first sounds going on. In the title song she starts with really dark sounds of reworked vocals that could come directly from a good horror film. Soft electronics are added and she starts to sing in a hypnotic way. In poetic form the words are mingled and twisted. It adds extra melody to the mysterious music. Other artists that come to mind after a few minutes of listening are Midaircondo and Tujiko Noriko, though again this does no justice to the originality of this work. Listening to Valentin for example it surprising how she builds up a playful piece of music with electric piano and farm sounds and other field recordings. But again, underneath the joy and childlike sounds hides some mystery. The tone is slightly scary. Maybe Valentine hasn't been good to her this time.
In the other songs this theme is set on. Through this weird combination of joy and mystery as a whole the music sounds intriguing. It makes you want to listen more and more.

All songs are created with simplicity, never a sound too much or too little. By this the music sounds honest without leaving any pretentious feelings. LeeDVD makes music from the heart and that is something I really appreciate.

This Lenajgiwittuju is a promising debut by LeeDVD and I hope that in the future we will hear more from this young musician. There is still enough room for development and further exploration, which gives also the potential for growth in popularity.

Hopefully next time with some English translations for the lyrics.

One fat 8 out of 10.

AudioTong is happy to introduce LeeDVD, Polish digital songwriter and singer - if only songwriting is a good description for the music on her debut EP presented here.

Six surreal, obsessive and hypnotic songs. Quirky fables, gloomy and humorous, smashed and squeezed pop, onieric and psychedelic, future songwriting - experimental in the best meaning of the word.

From noisy drones to abstract melodies, in a mood reminding somewhat of the surreal territories explored by Andrew Liles' in his solo works.

Surprising with the originality of the sound and ideas. Expressive in her introvertiveness. Absolutely astonishing. Unusual. Perfect.

Shall we continue trying to describe this music? Don't think so. Watch the marvelous video for the title track below and download the whole thing from our site.
