A young French Mexican musician who was spotted in 2010 as one of the most promising and exciting musical presences in the Mexican art-rock scene and singled out by James Blake.
She played SXSW and Sonar before settling in Paris to start working on her EP, Walls, an eclectic mix of elegant hooks and soul-tinged indie electronica.
Having collaborated with avant-garde US and UK-based producers like Nick Hook and Los Angeles electro wunderkind Salva, she secretly supplied lead vocals on James Blake's collaborator Airhead’s critically acclaimed single “Autumn”.
Following a standout collaboration with New York based rapper Kilo Kish and with former Young Turks act We Are Shining’s new track co-written by FKA Twigs due to be released, Andrea sheds her high-brow classical piano training, blue-eyed English soul and both French and South American folk inspirations to plunge into washes of expansive electronica and dreamy, suggestive vocal textures in her solo project.
File Andrea’s ethereal deep soul dubstep sounds and her fairy-like unique voice next to AlunaGeorge, FKA Twigs, Little Dragon, The XX and SBTRKT and you will not regret it. Currently writing her first album, which will feature a collaboration with Mount Kimbie, Andrea Balency is a hauntingly beautiful singer you don’t want to mess with. It’s time to let you go.
Andrea Balency tour dates listed on Ents24.com since Jul 2014.
