Hailing originally from KC, Missouri, the now 8-yr resident of Brussels has just released her first solo record of music. Noted for her former project, The Dead Texan as well as her work with visuals and graphic design, Vantzou is ever pushing the envelope with this beautiful release. After meeting her a couple years ago in Brussels, we recently reunited and I got to witness a brilliant performance in Gent, Belgium. Christina Vantzou‘s first solo record, Nº 1, is available worldwide via Kranky records. A deluxe supplemental release will come out in January featuring remixes and a dvd of accompanying visuals (excerpt below). Highly recommended.
