/Gig /London /KIRLIAN CAMERA + IN STRICT CONFIDENCE
November 17, 2023 @ 19:00 - 23:00 GMT
▪️We’re very happy to confirm that KIRLIAN CAMERA from Italy and IN STRICT CONFIDENCE from Germany will be brought together for an exclusive UK show in central London this November▪️
Founded in Parma in 1979 by Angelo Bergamini, Kirlian Camera was a pioneering act of the Italian synthpop scene. The band underwent many lineup changes before stabilising in 2000 when talented singer/composer/writer Elena Alice Fossi joined Kirlian Camera. She is also the leader of side-projects Alice Neve Fox, Spectra Paris and Siderartica, and co-leader in the Stalingrad project (nowadays renamed as Stalingrad Valkyrie) with Bergamini himself.
In late 2017, the band of Elena Alice Fossi and Angelo Bergamini released the hit-single “Sky Collapse” (featuring Eskil Simonsson of COVENANT) which immediately gained remarkable success in Central Europe, reaching Number 1 in the German Alternative Charts. After a few months, in 2018, the new album “Hologram Moon” quickly became the band’s best-seller as far as a full-length studio work is concerned, even entering the official German music charts and staying at Number 1 in the German Alternative charts for several weeks. Elena Alice Fossi has become one of the most appreciated singers of all time on the global electronic music scene.
IN STRICT CONFIDENCE
In the 90s, Dennis Ostermann, Stefan Vesper & Jörg Schelte decided to no longer just consume music, but to become creatively active himself. After first musical attempts and sound experiments, the typical sound of ISC finally crystallised.
First record companies take notice of ISC and make offers. After extensive negotiations, the decision is made in favor of the cult label of the time, Zoth Ommog. In 1996 the official debut album “Cryogenix” is released. Tracks like “Become An Angel”, “Inside” or “Sudorific” hit the heart of the scene and take the dark dance floors by storm.
The band not only set standards with their music, but also set the bar high in terms of visual concepts. Both the visually opulent artwork and the brilliant accompanying photographic material are rightly regarded as small works of art beyond the boundaries of the scene.
Today ISC are considered a real export hit. They have already toured almost 30 countries with their brilliant live show.
After 10 studio albums In Strict Confidence show no signs of slowing down. Currently ISC are working again on a new studio album and further projects.
