Dandi Wind

Performance art can often be a bitter pill to swallow and unfortunately for Dandi Wind, their NXNE appearance went down like a pint of shattered glass. Though the duo showed a lot of promise on their fiercely eccentric Bait the Traps EP from earlier this year, vocalist Dandilion Schlase's in-your-face posturing and interpretive dancing was more embarrassing than interesting. Szam Findlay's accompaniment on a simple keyboard station brought back memories of electroclash that no longer feel relevant. Maybe with a full backing band it could have taken away the cheapness of the backing tracks and worked, but there wasn't enough there this time to make it palatable.
