Playing a special electro-acoustic set

Fronted by the charismatic chanteuse Sukie Smith, Madam’s noirish, nocturnal music brings to mind PJ Harvey, Portishead, and Cat Power at their smokey, intoxicating, late night best. Earlier this year the band released their second album, Gone Before Morning, which like their first, In Case of Emergency (2008), has received widespread critical acclaim. Whilst Sukie also wrote the soundtrack for Neophyte Films’ debut feature film, Hush Your Mouth – an ‘urban ghost story’, which won Best Film and Best Director at the Portugal Film Festival 2011

Praise for Madam and Gone Before Morning

****  – Q Magazine
Sultry, slightly spooked, and lusciously late night Americana noir
– Time Out
lots of dark, sinister undertones, and her voice is sultry and dangerous with a hint of vulnerability and skewed glamour… one to look out for
– Mail on Sunday
Throughout her music Madam affects the listener in many ways; her evocative vocals leave you wanting more
– Aesthetica
Ten tracks to treasure create highly atmospheric vignettes of pleasure taken in a moment, love that lasts a weekend, lies told in the name of love, and lovers that cannot risk staying in the same place too long
