On February 9, 2012, Welsh singer Cate Le Bon performed at New York’s Mercury Lounge. Telling the audience how much fun she was having seeing us “hot pieces of asses,” Cate Le Bon played an hour long set that featured songs from her records “Me Oh My” and 2012’s “Cyrk.” If you are unfamiliar with Cate Le Bon’s music, here’s a brief primer. First off, she’s not related to Duran Duran lead singer Simon Le Bon (ha!) Musically, she is a folk/pop singer who has a unique, haunting and powerful voice (think Florence Welch mixed with Bjork) and her subject matter is dark and is heavily influenced by her young experiences of pet death. She’ll be playing in Hoboken, New Jersey tonight and invited everyone to come “on tour” with her, so check her out if you are in the area!
