Ella Hooper - singer and multimedia queen at large - is carving out some time to tour her new music in trio mode this March, playing songs from her intense, acclaimed double EP, 'Venom / New Magic'
'The most disarming and profound statement of Hooper’s career– Venom/New Magic, A buzzing, creaky tapestry of tunes that veers from punky New Wave bursts to creepy Bad Seeds-esque lurches' - Rolling Stone
Playing intimate, resonant rooms Ella is packing two thirds of her New Magic band - synthesiser, electric guitar and occasional percussion to dress the combination of warm retro pop and scathing singer-songwriter folk. Topped off with harmonies that chill and swell in unorthodox ways, the small scale set up still packs a punch.
'A bold, awesome accomplishment, New Magic is excited, open-hearted and eager. Venom, vocally crushing and instrumentally sparse. Hooper's alternate reality is here..'- Jake Clelland, Strine Whine
Venom / New Magic was a catharsis, a startling follow up to her solo debut, In Tongues, a kooky rock record which spawned indie jams/bangers Low High and Haxan.. Hooper will touch on a few fan favourites from that era before giving a sneak peek, a glimpse into what shape Ella Hooper solo will morph into next.
