Bartleby Delicate is the solo singer-songwriter project of the Luxembourgish musician Georges Goerens, more widely known for being the lead vocalist of the band ‘Seed to Tree’.
Since starting the solo project in 2017, Goerens has played shows in Luxembourg and abroad and supported bands like Rodrigo y Gabriela, Giant Rooks, and Aldous Harding.
Bartleby ornaments his poems with delicate guitar sounds and soothing soundscapes similar to Bon Iver and Sufjan Stevens. His live performances are sincere and tender, yet filled with an eager determination.
On 6 September 2019, Bartleby Delicate released his latest single: ‘Post Love Doubts’. The music video features Goerens performing the song on guitar and synth and gives off a distinctive eerie mood – the songwriter stands alone, his only company his instruments and a few mysterious cubes.
Layered with the occasional guitar sequence, detached-sounding vocals and delicate foley percussion evolve into glitchy beats and a driving bass line to give the track an overall gritty, but oddly moving aura.
