Xarah Dion


Xarah Dion @Yannick Fornacciari 2.jpg

Xarah Dion is an integral presence in Montreal’s electronic music community for over a decade. Her synthpop works usher in a novel yet classic sound. Infused with 80s industrial and disco sounds, Dion's productions stand out with their intricate soundscapes and signature melodies. She widely toured Europe, UK and Russia to promote her critically acclaimed first LP, Le Mal Nécessaire (2014). With her  latest LP, FUGITIVE (2016), Dion expands on her unique tone with skillful compositions and arrangements.

Xarah Dion, c’est l’éther des machines, la danse folle du dilemme et de la contemplation, l’ensorcellement indocile et consentant.
— Vice
Combining dark disco and pop sensibilities, Le Mal Necessaire breaks from the unified sound of synthwave, delving into sounds and timbres not far off from industrial and punk.
— Noisey
(...)il y a Xarah Dion, qui allie des rythmes synthétiques sombres et bruts à ses textes introspectifs et libérateurs pour créer un répertoire intense qu’elle a proposé aux Européens l’automne dernier, en tournée avec Godspeed You! Black Emperor.
— Le Devoir
