One thing about the Internet: You never know what you're going to stumble upon. For me, on Friday, it was AN PIERLE & WHITE VELVET.
They be from Belgium. Are led by AN PIERLE (natch) and KOEN GISEN (not so natch). Self-described aesthetic: "something beautiful and cold; something dazzling and underground; innocence and experience -- a cross between Snow White and Nico."
But the fact is, on Friday, I risked listening to them without a single inkling re: their names or nation; their sound or aesthetic. Seems only sporting that you, too, face that leap of faith....
