Cindy Lee // Bruch @Venster99

Cindy Lee + Bruch

(CAN, Maple Death & Superior Viaduct)

Cindy Lee is the brainchild of singer/guitarist Patrick Flegel. While some may know Flegel from his time in Canadian experimental indie band Women (Band), Cindy Lee has spent the past four years crafting songs that push and pull in opposing directions – from tales of tragedy laced with haywire distortion to moments of breathtaking beauty. – Superior Viaduct

“Describing a world of beauty, escape, sorrow, loss and catharsis usually needs a strong leap of faith and when it comes to music such a feat is almost impossible, modern day consumption is pulling us by the throats and we don’t have time to surrender, we don’t have time to let the fog, the mystery, the universal shine seek into our eyes and creep into our minds. There are exceptions, Cindy Lee is one of them, a rare all-in lifer, flickering candle.

It’s up to you to decide where the mystery starts and ends, Cindy Lee will be there: she’s on stage, watching you eye to eye, lips to lips, elegance and poise, dissonance and lace, connecting on a primordial level with music that simply floats, lifts and carries any heartbreaking restless being. It’s nothing or… it’s everything.” – Maple Death Records

“Cindy Lee is intensely dark and cathartic, an eerie fever dream of fleeting, utterly heartbreaking classic girl-group melodies … one of the best things we have heard all year.” – Gorilla vs. Bear

“(…) whatever is in Patrick Flegel’s mind: It’s that same blend of pretty and ugly that exists in all of us—the tumult going on in all of our brains that could make way for something weirdly alluring if we allow it.” – passion of the weiss
