Comfort are the sibling duo of Natalie (she/her) and Sean (he/him) based in Glasgow. Through the combination of intensely layered electronic melodies and the very physical mechanical drumming of Sean, they create very personal and emotionally rich dance music. The danceability of it, other than being a stylistic choice, seems to be used as an emotional trigger, tying in to the words spoken or shouted by Natalie. Lyrically themes such as gender, identity, social and moral conflict, psychological harm inflicted on one's self and others are recurring, aggravated further through the emotionally rich voice of Natalie, at times hysterical, at others soothingly calm, illustrating further the schizophrenic dualities they address.

About the series: No View, The Radio
The arts are taking a break. Theaters, museums, concert halls and galleries are closed. To a large extent, the art that is so desperately needed right now is inaccessible. Imagine being quarantined at home without films, without books, without music.
Though we may not access the art, we can still think about it. The enforced rupture of this isolation can also be an opportune moment to reflect on and from, the arts. Every Friday for the upcoming weeks we will showcase original musical works by different artists, selected by Alex Andropoulos.
