Café Central 14, Rue Borgval - 1000 Bruxelles

Some Noise, Cheap Satanism Records and Café Central welcome you to:


Sealionwoman was formed by way of a fortuitous, chance meeting of Scottish-born jazz-influenced vocalist Kitty Whitelaw and double bass player Tye McGivern.

The stripped-down duo line-up of Sealionwoman coalesced around Whitelaw’s rich and beguiling vocal and McGivern’s atmospherically inventive approach to his instrument. A defiantly uncategorisable sound was born, equally informed by melancholic soundscapes, torch-song transgressions and rapturous drama. McGivern offers Bad Seeds-style atmospherics influenced by noir-jazz degenerates Morphine and a Colin Stetson-esque approach to minimalism. This is masterfully fused with Whitelaw’s theatrical inspired vocals, taking inspiration from iconoclastic vocal stylists like Beth Gibbons, Circuit Des Yeux’s Haley Fohr, and Sarah Vaughan.
