Cate Le Bon presents a new single/video, “Moderation,” off of her forthcoming album, Pompeii, out February 4, 2022 on Mexican Summer. The songs of Pompeii feel suspended in time, both of the moment and instant but reactionary and Dada-esque in their insistence to be playful, satirical, and surreal. From the spirited, strutting bass fretwork of “Moderation”, to the sax-swagger of lead single, “Running Away”; a tale exquisite in nature but ultimately doomed, escapism lives as a foil to the outside world. Pompeii’s audacious tribute to memory, compassion, and mortal salience is here to stay. Le Bon says “Moderation” is “a nod to the daily dilemma of trying to curb inherited and novel habits, when you want to eat the moon, and an essay written by the architect Lina Bo Bardi in 1958 that continues to kick hard.” The playful video was directed by Juliana and Nicola Giraffe of Giraffe Studios and filmed through a window of Bo Bardi’s.

Pompeii is Le Bon’s sixth studio album, and the follow-up to 2019’s Reward. Written primarily on bass, Le Bon plays every instrument (except drums and saxophones) and recorded the album largely by herself with long-term collaborator and co-producer Samur Khouja in Cardiff, Wales. Enforced time and space pushed boundaries, leading to an even more extreme version of Le Bon's studio process " as exits were sealed, she granted herself “permission to annihilate identity.” A global pandemic plus climate emergency’s colliding eco-traumas resonate all too eerily. “What would be your last gesture?” she asks. But Pompeii reaches past the current crises to tap into what Le Bon calls “an economy of time warp” where life roils, bubbles, wrinkles, melts, hardens, and reconfigures unpredictably, like lava"or sound, rather.

Over the past few years, Le Bon has emerged as a sought-after collaborator, producing albums for Deerhunter, John Grant, Devendra Banhart and more. In 2019, she joined John Cale for a three-night live stretch in Paris, and this year, she guests on Courtney Barnett's just released album. As Bradford Cox aptly notes, "there are artists who look inwards or outwards, and then there are the very rare ones who transcend either location.”

Artist Bio

Born in the hamlet of Penboyr found in Carmarthenshire during 1986, Cate Le Bon grew up in the idyllic setting of South West Wales. She developed her own unique style which embraces both psychedelic rock and indie folk plus developed her talents as a producer and began to attract a modest following which earned her a support slot for Gruff Rhys of Super Furry Animals on his solo tour in 2007.

In 2009, Cate Le Bon released her incredible debut album Me Oh My which truly marked her arrival. It started a run of her impressive records which each reveal her impressive creative powers, including Cryk (2012), Mug Museum (2013) and Crab Day (2016).

This year has seen the release of Cate Le Bon’s latest album Reward through independent label Mexican Summer. A huge hit with the critics, her latest LP received rave reviews in many publications;

Cate Le bon's terrific run of form continues with what must be her best album. ... She enchants at every turn.” - Uncut

Reward is Cate Le Bon’s most emotionally astute record to date, and her melodic prowess is the strongest it’s ever been. With that, Reward sounds like a modern classic, because it has a longevity that very few records possess.” - The Quietus

Reward shows Le Bon harnessing a reinterpretation all her own--stretching her range with layers of idiosyncrasies while remaining at the helm as one of today’s most sui generis anomalies.” - The Line Of Best Fit
