Spirited and evolving Melbourne singer songwriter, Shelley Segal has announced the release of her new single, Sidelined (April 17) lifted from her forth studio release, Strange Feeling, set for release on May 8.
Lead single, Sidelined is an optimistic and catchy pop song Shelley conceived upon reflection of a romantic liaison when the other person wanted Shelley to change her appearance for them. “The song is my understanding of the nature of our aesthetics while questioning whether we can overcome them,” Shelley explains. Inspired by the song’s theme, the clip for Sidelined sees the progression of Shelley starting off completely unmade in bed, to having herself immaculately styled and groomed. “Subscribing to the visual expectations of others can vastly improve our outcomes, but those that don’t fit will often pay a price or be sidelined.” Shelley describes.
Shelley’s new EP and fourth studio release, Strange Feeling was recorded at the iconic Birdland Studios (Kate Miller-Heidke, The Living End) and was produced by Robert Upward and co-produced by Lindsay Gravina (Adalita, Jet). The themes on the EP are varied and cover some of Shelley’s experiences over the last few years, ranging from falling in love, rejection, body image, divorce and there’s even a song about going to the movies, all while keeping in with Shelley’s quirky, folk pop sensibility.
