Helen Money’s performance at the fourth edition of “This is Not A Lovesong” in Nîmes was without hesitation the strongest moment of the festival… Alone on stage, Alison Chesley, aka Helen Money, manipulates her cello with authority and intensity, seeming to cut its throat with the bow or merging with it like a creature with two heads, leading to an agonizing introspection. Based largely on songs from her upcoming album, Become Zero, to be published in September, the concert made us delve further into the darkness and unspeakable beauty of her music, alternating ferocity and sadness. Visceral, haunted, emotional sounds.
