Living Is A Myth
Undefined by genre, Ravioli Me Away's high energy, dangerously ambitious and delusional jazzy-post-pop-punk-hip-funk sound contains stylistically schizophrenic motifs, spanning all-known past, present and future human cultures and sub-cultures. This is social realism soaked through with a heady dose of fantasy, idiosyncratic poetics, keyboard flurries and vocal vicissitudes. Ravioli Me Away are Sian Dorrer, Rosie Ridgway and Alice Theobald and an intermittent member, Monika Kroll. Since forming in January 2013, they have performed extensively at various events in the UK, France, Switzerland, Germany, Czech-Republic and Holland. Theobald, Dorrer and Ridgway have a mutual interest in identity, politics, human relationships, love, gender, class and current affairs, and use performance, art and music as a means to explore, debate and express such interests, using metaphor, clichés pop references and repetition. To date, they have together written and produced up to 30 songs and have performed over 80 concerts, each high-energy and curated to reflect a different theme or character inspired from everyday life. These themes are evident in costume, visuals and stage presence. More recently they have been developing their own individual alter-ego/characters for their performances. Comes as orange, 180 gram vinyl in a gatefold sleeve. Includes a song book, A1 poster and download card. Edition of 500. "They remind me of so much I love about the world: I could reel off lists of names like protective dressage, all bondage armor but I am just a cipher, a vacuum at the other end of a meaningless conversation. I mean, you want descriptors? Why would you want descriptors? Their sound describes their own sound so much more obliquely than I ever could." --Everett True, Collapse Board.
