As always on Sunday night, De Libertad presents a Sunday Night Live concert. Of course, this will be a jazz concert on both Sundays of the Leuven Jazzfestival.
The Belated Promise Ring
A grey dove - A violent husband and his wife - A wishing well - A summer snow - A murderous stroll ... the songs of Belated Promise Ring (Mechelen, Leuven, Lanaken and Melbourne) take the listener on a filmic journey which is both dark and hopeful.
Their metaphoric give a wider understanding of our own perspectives. The protagonists in their songs are the war-tired soldier, a wandering Jack the Ripper, the falling mountaineer, Carlos the trans-migrant ... in the universe of Belated Promise Ring the ideal song contains both chaos and dissonance.
Belated Promise Ring serves some fine indiejazz with references to Trixie Whitley, Grizzly Bear, Timber Timbre, Arcade Fire, Nick Cave, Mark Lanegan
