A richly evocative and innovative musical collaboration between Elizabeth De la Rey (vocals/guitar/piano) and Emile De la Rey (electronics).
'Contrite Elegant Rebel' is the formal album debut of Porcelaintoy, a richly evocative and innovative musical collaboration between Elizabeth De la Rey (vocals/guitar/piano) and Emile De la Rey (electronics).
Recorded in their home studio in Wellington over the course of a year, the album was also developed and expanded into a live theatre piece featuring a choir, string sextet, dance troupe and multi-media elements. It premiered in March 2011 at Bats Theatre, where it was acclaimed as "another clear highpoint" of the Fringe Festival by Lumiere.net.
The Porcelaintoy sound assimilates a number of eclectic musical traditions (from industrial pop to trip-hop to neo-classical romanticism) around the commanding, sultry voice of singer Elizabeth De la Rey to build contemporary, lush pop soundscapes that they can call their own.
