Red Balloon Music are proud to present the first-ever Manchester show from MESADORM in support of their eagerly awaited debut album ‘Heterogaster’ to be released on 11th May.

Support from upcoming alt rock band DEAR ROBOT.


Mesadorm is a new collaborative project between Blythe Pepino (formerly of London Art Pop trio Vaults), Daisy Palmer (Paloma Faith, Goldfrapp, MIKA, Rae Morris), Jo Silverston (The Unthanks, Red Clay Halo, Frank Turner), Aaron Zahl, and David Johnston (ZunZun Egui, Phil King, Chairfight!). The relationships in the project go back many years and have a distinctly Bristol centred heritage.

What to expect:

After a few years testing the mainstream stage with a major record deal, Pepino has moved back to her roots as a left field rock and electronica song-writer.

Here you will find her in happy harmony with Aaron Zahl who has recorded and produced the eagerly anticipated debut album fleshing out the musical world with his electronic sound scapery.

Having known each other since they were teenagers and weathered various phases of life and musical outfits, Zahl, Pepino, Palmer, Johnston and Silverston have a unique connection that plays out in this project with depth and assuredness.

The writing sits somewhere between the domestic observation of Suzanne Vega and the powerful, elemental other-worldliness of Bjork.


Atmospheric indie pop band from Stroud, Leipzig and Bristol.
