The dark pop of Aimee DeBeer at The Deli's CMJ stages

The dark isn’t necessarily scary for Aimee DeBeer. As heard in the celestial singles, “Oblivion” (streaming below) and “Persephone And The Devil,” off her forthcoming EP ‘Strange Fiction,’ the New York-based singer/songwriter glides across a black sky of cloudy synths and tumbling drums with calm strength. The South Africa-born and Texas-raised musician, with her satin timbre and nocturnal pop, almost inevitably recalls Lana Del Rey in these early singles, but these enigmatically moving songs foreshadow an intrigue all her own. Although no upcoming shows are visible on her Facebook page, Aimee DeBeer’s ‘Strange Fiction’ is reportedly out this month with a tour to follow, and will be performing at The Deli's CMJ show at the Living Room on 10.17. - Zach Weg
