In his Brussels-based band Beautiful Badness, the singer and songwriter Gabriel Sesboué tells the story of a child of the nineties. With a perfect falsetto, shaped by hours of listening to Jeff Buckley, Gabriel combines the universes of his heroes like Rufus Wainwright, Anthony & The Johnsons, the complex structures of Queen, and the melancholy of Saint-Saens, Berlioz and Fauré. With vocal polyphony, like in the acappella song Silent & Still, and keyboard arpeggios as in Blackbird in the storm, Beautiful Badness takes us on a journey that explores the issues of being a thirty-something year old. How to accept the passing of time. How to leave childhood and the simpler time, where people listened to music on home-made mixtapes and things were beautiful rather than “instagrammable”. How to deal with the paradox of being the first generation to use social networks - and the last to remember what it was like to live without them. This is best illustrated in the very personal cover video of the famous theme from FRIENDS, I'll be there for you. The Central Perk is now an app, where friendship can be bought with personal data. Under the dramatic choir, piano and euphonious vocals, the heavy electro bass comes in to remind us that, well... we’re in 2020. In 2015, Beautiful Badness caught the attention of the Belgian and French audiences with the Many Years EP, especially their breathtaking song A Sunny Morning. Almost a hundred gigs later, across venues like La Cigale (Paris), Paradisio (Amsterdam), Botanique and Forest National (Brussels), and having performed as a support act to artists like Kodaline, Matt Corby, Birdpen…, Gabriel and his band bring Rewind to London, their first album and an ode to his generation.
