Clytem Scanning is a Paris-based singer-songwriter and programmer. She started to create her one-woman band in 2006, alone in her room, amidst Midi synths and computers. Like in her former projects, the industrial-metal band Shane Cough, her voice still remains very strong, fluctuating between abrasive and velvety….Clytem Scanning composes a very personal music, which is a playful mix of beat driven melodies filled with dark ambiances. The songs combine either electro-pop melodies with jaunty rythmics and light-hearted vocals or unsettling and dark compositions with throbbing backbeats. Both alternate to create a very mesmerizing and unique universe, made of tiny shrieks and imaginative lyrics. Her startling and expressive voice is each time put front and center….To sum-up her strange universe, she refers to The Residents for the experimental pop music, to Arthur Russel for the hypnotic textures, to Coil for the eerie and cold sounds and for all to Tricky, The Knife and Planningtorock…. She also makes collages and videos under the (other) pseudonym of Miss Lois Iron. Very similar to her music, her art is made of bits and fragments, weaved together in the intimacy of the bedroom. On stage, Clytem Scanning plays a very sensual and striking show, with a raw and more agressive sound, a powerful and physical voice and noise guitars with feedbacks, punctuated with few cold moments of calm. She (machines & synths) plays with the guitarist Arnaud Fournier (Hint/La Phaze). An EP was released in September 2010 (mixed par Fred Norguet (Ez3kiel, Cercueil) on Clytem Records. The album Armada will be released in April 12 on Clytem Records.
