Phanee de Pool

  • Switzerland
  • Mischievous elastic slam

Phanee de Pool is a bit like Camille without the bare feet. Or like a little Mademoiselle K who had inadvertently swallowed her distortion pedal. With her guitar, keyboard and loops, she slams and raps in symbiosis: and so slap was born. She flows, unwinds, unpacks, wanders, detonates, shifts (sometimes) and disarms (often). Animated by an elastic lucidity, the young Swiss artist wields the blade of language like a rapper and accompanies our existential clumsiness like an angel on our shoulder. Phanee de Pool’s is a clear, solid, shrewd voice borne aloft on melodic notes full of mischief.
