watch Tom Jacob’s documentary about Mesadorm ‘Colour & SOund’
“Some of the most interesting music this year” - The Guardian, 2018
"A beautiful record” - Huw Stephens, BBC Radio 1
“I’m absolutely addicted....really affecting and beautiful, I love it” - Lauren Laverne, BBC 6 Music
Formed in Bristol in 2015 Mesadorm's emotive and skilled melding of the pastoral and synthetic is the result of a unique combination of experienced musicianship, diverse cultural tastes and the strong bonds of friendship, with songwriting firmly aimed at the space between the piercing domestic observations of Suzanne Vega and the elemental other-worldiness of Bjork, drawing on contemporary influences including Caribou, Grizzly Bear and Sylvan Esso as well as legendary female luminaries like Carole King, Joni Mitchell and Kate Bush.
Aside from the emotional heft of Mesadorm's music, the pedigree of its members is also not to be underestimated. Between them, Mesadorm's members have played with Paloma Faith, Goldfrapp, Rae Morris, Frank Turner, The Unthanks, The Magnetic North, toured with London Grammar and fronted major-label signing Vaults as well as singing on John Lewis' 2016 Christmas Ad.
