CCCVVV is the Brussels based duo of Clara Vellin and soFa elsewhere. The first Covid-lockdown drew these two old friends closer and both a love-story and burst of musical creativity followed.
A wide-eyed electronic record wearing its heart on an innersleeve, Curriculum Vitae chases after no real genre, preferring a very personal colour and style of its own. Music and passion entwined, it has resulted in this collection of intimate avant-pop-oddities. The album collects whispers of 60's chanson and psyched out chords, holding a playful spirit throughout.
Through the genre-no-genre approach, Curriculum Vitae distills down to a vital essence, constantly flirting with smartly infused elements from the past/present for the head, heart and feet.
Highlights include a dreamy version of Nancy & Lee's 'Some Velvet Morning' alongside the acidic slow-mo hypnotics of 'Ritmo Denso'. 'Generationen' floats on a pillow of sonic bliss, while 'Alla Porta Subito's vocal and instrument interplay slinks closer to outer-planetary italo-reggae.
C.V.'s production wanders along a retro-futuristic approach throughout, its punkish attitude dancing between an embrace of the modern and a more naive pop-arrangement approach. Along this 37 minute journey the sweet and dark sides of a lifetime are witnessed, light organic harp marries refreshingly to carefully chosen synthesizers. Whimsical lyrics meet with melancholic composition.
Clara Vellin is a classical harp player active in a variety of eclectic musical projects.
soFa, known for his highly acclaimed series of the eclectic "elsewhere" compilations, & productions such as Mameen 3, Nyati Mayi and collab with legendary Turkish drummer Okay Temiz & Houschyar on Music From Memory/Second Circle.
