Me Lost Me
Me Lost Me is the solo electronic music project of Newcastle based artist, composer and musician Jayne Dent, current Artist in Residence at internationally renowned concert venue Sage Gateshead. Described by BBC Radio 6's Tom Robinson as a "brilliant peculiar noise", Me Lost Me delights in experimenting with genre, taking influence from folk, electronica, art pop, ambient and noise music to create a beguiling mix of soaring vocals, synth, field recordings and hypnotic rhythms. Her live shows are atmospheric, dark and playful, with a repertoire that explores storytelling through original songs, improvisations and reworkings of traditional ballads.
Following the release of her debut album 'Arcana' in 2018 she has been touring the UK extensively, with notable performances including BBC Radio 3’s ‘Exposure’ at Fruit in Hull, Manchester Folk Horror Festival, Northern Electric Festival, and recently supported Maximo Park at the Virgin Money Unity Arena. Me Lost Me was named in NE Volume’s ‘Top 10 Artists to See Live in 2021’, after gaining attention for her experimental and adaptable approach to livestreams and online works during 2020.
Her highly anticipated second album 'The Good Noise', released in November 2020 and supported by Tallbird Records and an enthusiastic crowdfunding campaign, demonstrates a maturing of her sound and a deepening of her exploration of landscape, sonic texture, storytelling and her experiments with genre.
Of Swedish origin and now living in Newcastle upon Tyne, Nathalie first served her apprenticeship in Swedish pop punk band Candysuck, which influenced the emerging Swedish feminist music movement in the mid-90s, before moving to the UK and founding the guitar/drums duo Lake Me in 2001. As a solo act, and keen to explore traditional Swedish folk heritage and more experimental sounds, she released her debut album ‘Firetales’ in 2009 on her own label Minta Rec and on the German label The Company With The Golden Arm.
Her long awaited follow-up, ‘Nerves and Skin’, was released in 2019 and builds on the experimental folk traditions of her debut, awash with vocal harmonies, synth loops and drones but with the maturity of an artist who knows their craft and is at the top of their game. Using a sparse set up of loop pedals, vocal effects and synths, Nathalie sculpts haunting soundscapes that fuse a love of old folk songs, horror and folk lore with vocals and lo-fi electro textures. The album was released on Inverted Grim Mill Recordings and Cruel Nature Records on CD, limited white vinyl and limited cassette tape (sold out).
Nathalie is often joined on stage by Lindsay Duncanson and Marek Gabrysch from the experimental performance collective Noize Choir, and whose vocal effects augment the tracks on ‘Nerves and Skin’, ranging from industrial noise to melting glaciers.
Having toured extensively throughout the UK, Europe and North America, Nathalie has supported luminaries like Silver Apples, tune-yards, Daniel Higgs, Damo Suzuki and was invited to perform an improv gig in Austin, Texas, with Thor Harris from Swans.
She performed at BBC Radio 3’s Free Thinking Festival in 2017, and is featured in ‘Folk Horror Revival Volume II – Sweet Fruits’ (Wyrd Harvest Press, 2018), a book series with content contributions by today’s folk horror practitioners including literature, poetry and artwork. Nathalie also runs the regular radio show, HÄX, on CAMP Radio.
