bio

 

New Orleans based Biglemoi named themselves after a fantastical dance which, if performed properly, creates an atmosphere of flowing energy that invites everybody to join. The term, lifted from the book "Froth on the Daydream (L’Ecume des Jours)" by surrealist-wave author Boris Vian, fits the 5 piece.

 Biglemoi comes off as a healthy mix of all the best rock and roll ingredients. Anchored by traditional instrumentation and creative arrangements, their songs are snapped together by sudden flourishes of technicality and genre shifting. The songwriting is thoughtful and unpredictable.

The band started playing in June 2015 with the release of their first self-titled EP, and reflects in their music the concept of the Biglemoi explained by Vian. It is composed of three New Orleans natives, bassist Matt Bigelow, guitarist Jeremy Marx and drummer Jonathan Arceneaux. Violeta del Rio from Madrid, Spain, plays keys/synth/vocals and singer/guitarist/bandleader George Elizondo hails from Managua, Nicaragua. This geographical diversity adds a welcome variety of both personal and cultural influences to their music.

Biglemoi just recorded their second EP titled "Permanent Vacation" and it will be released on the June 28th, 2019.  

 

Biglemoi is:

George Elizondo – Lead vocals, guitar
Violeta Del Rio – Lead vocals, keys, effects
Jeremy Marx – Electric guitar
Matthew Bigelow – Electric bass
Jonathan Arceneaux – Drums

Biglemoi comes from the 21st Century

July 31st, 2015 | By: Alex Rawls | My Spilt Milk

Biglemoi’s self-titled debut EP has so many roots that it almost sounds rootless. The group has two New Orleanians, a Spaniard, a Nicaraguan and—most exotically—a Mississippian. That makes the band sound like a contemporary New Orleans story, as does the music itself, which has no obvious ties to any of those places... READ MORE
