    ” Nobody’s Home” (Paper Bag Records): A label press release describes this cat as “a mysterious glam-rocker.” We haven’t discovered his true identity, though we do approve of his stage name. His debut album, Trespasser, is set for release on Oct. 12, and this new single and video grabbed our attention.

    The glam tag doesn’t totally fit this cut. Joy Division-like basslines underpin d’Ecco’s androgynous vocals, and there are enough subtle production touches to make this quite beguiling. Analogue synths are used to good effect too, as is the slightly sinister video directed by Jasper Savage.

    Art d’Ecco has embraced the spirit of glam, declaring that his sound and style “is gonna make some people feel uncomfortable. Maybe I don’t belong. But I’m pushing my agenda on the masses. I’m into androgyny and the theatre of the bizarre and the absurd and challenging the masculine overtones of the rock and roll industry. The aesthetic of rock is a little tired.” Bowie is cited as a key influence. – Kerry Doole, FYI Music News
