Marble Sounds feat. CASCO Phil

Marble Sounds is a Belgian band around singer-songwriter Pieter Van Dessel. The band recorded their last album Tautou with the strings of CASCO Phil conducted by Benjamin Haemhouts. When performing concerts together, reactions are always enthusiastic: “An artistic tour de force, calling upon intimate poetry and epic tales, with a background of richly arranged sounds.”

At the helm of Marble Sounds is Pieter Van Dessel, who is also part half of the electro band Plastic Operator.  The track ‘Redesign’ received considerable air play on Belgian national radio (Radio 1, StuBru) and was picked up by the BBC DJ Steve Lamacq. Back in Belgium, Van Dessel put together a band consisting of Gianni Marzo (Isbells), Frederik Bastiaensen (ex-General Mindy), Christophe Vandewoude and Johan De Coster (Soon). In a matter of weeks, Marble Sounds was opening for bands such as Why?, Micah P. Hinson, HRSTA and Keith Caputo (Life of Agony). The band also contributed the opening track to Chapter Music’s tribute to Kath Bloom alongside such musical beau monde as Devendra Banhart, The Dodos, Bill Callahan and Mark Kozelek.
