After a decade as lead singer of experimental rock band Electrelane, Verity Susman’s solo project probes new territory. Using music, visuals and text, her live shows create a world of psychedelic alienation, embracing the subversive possibilities of awkwardness. Often appearing in drag, her saxophone becomes an organ of musical and gender performance, confronting audiences with a queer female masculinity that is at once serious, humorous, angry and uncomfortable. At times ironic, often passionate and full of joyous heartbreak, Verity takes the audience into a collage of exploratory sounds, woven through surreal reconstructions of pulp romance novels and sci-fi slash fiction tales.
