Bedless Bones | IDM / Dark Wave / Estonia
Bedless Bones is Kadri Sammel - vocalist, producer, multi-instrumentalist and interdisciplinary artist from Tallinn, Estonia. With a background of a decade of singing in choirs; studies in cultural theory, audiovisual media and photography; her personal musical style has transformed into solo project Bedless Bones, which experiments with different noir genres; building bridges and bending borders between darkwave, murky EBM & techno beats and industrial sounds and abstract otherworldly atmosphere akin to IDM. Brought to life through songs that are charged with a multilayered melancholic sound, but also ignite dark dancefloors and evoke familiarity.
Regardless of Bedless Bones' debut in late 2019 and the following situation with Covid restrictions, the band has already played on festivals such as Wave Gotik Treffen (Germany), Cold Hearted Festival (Germany), Castle Party (Poland) and Kalabalik på Tyrolen (Sweden), also Tallinn Music Week; and shared the stage with New Model Army, Sex Gang Children, She Past Away, Ordo Rosarius Equilibrio, The Horrorist, Void Ov Voices (Attila Csihar), Lebanon Hanover, Kaelan Mikla and others.
Her debut debut album “Sublime Malaise” was released in 2019 via Cold Transmission Music, followed by a remix album "After Malaise" in 2020, and the sophomore album "Bending The Iron Bough" in 2021.
In addition to that, Kadri is a member of Estonian avantgarde deathbeat/outdustrial band Forgotten Sunrise and the singer of up-and-coming UK/Estonian dystopian industrial band Deathsomnia.
Another alias of Kadri is DJ Dirt Vessel: for the last few years she has been a crucial part of Beats From The Vault, an underground dark music event series in Estonia that has been going on since 1998. In her captivating sets lush with solemn atmospheres and a transcendental effect, she plays dark & industrial techno and EBM, but also darkwave and post-punk; and firmly paved her way as an important member of the scene.
