BB Sea + 55 Cancri e at Acud / Thursday, 28.04.2016

“A mild zephyr blows across the seven seas, buzzing and flickeing, which could spell trouble…or maybe not. The west wind brings with it banjo licks, velvety, dripping beats and the pounding of bulbous drums.

BB Sea spin a thick, sonorous and a somewhat eerient out of musical inspirations, which otherwise don’t seem to share any common times, spaces, instruments or techniques: the Sahara and the Appalachias, the Mississippi River and the Spree. Deeply atmospheric. Like summer rain – or a sand storm.” (Falk Quenstedt)

Born in 1989 in Malmö, Sara Hausenkamp aka 55 Cancri e started out learning classical guitar as a child before playing keyboard in different bands in her teenage years/early 20s. In 2013 she moved to Berlin and began playing keyboard/guitar/singing in electro duo Naftik. As well as music, she expresses herself through illustrations, collages, photos, writing, painting, fanzine-making etc. and studied at the school of Comic Art in Malmö.

Hausenkamp’s solo project 55 Cancri e started in the summer of 2014 with the creation and distillation of six tracks of perfect night music from outer space. Harnessing the power cosmic Sara specialises in tunes covered in diamonds – a melting pot of sensitive guitars, crying synthesizers, barking flutes, mellow wine glasses, combined with gorgeous organ/melodica and haunting voices. The end result is a beautiful, melancholic and stunning debut drawing comparisons to artists such as This Mortal Coil and Cocteau Twins.
