Rising Singer and Songwriter FELIVAND Releases Her Brand New Single ‘Midsummer Sun’ From Forthcoming EP ‘Nerve‘
The New Single from FELIVAND was Co-written and produced by close friend Allan McConnel (Close Counters), ‘Midsummer Sun’ lulls you in with easy, quixotic nostalgia before revealing the bite that lies underneath.
FELIVAND imparts the painful pull of caring for someone who doesn’t care enough for themselves and the helplessness and questioning of watching them give into their own self-destructive tendencies.
With bold and resolute synth chords in the foreground, FELIVAND fills ‘Midsummer Sun’ with brilliant arpeggiators, crunchy percussion and warm, earthy melodies, bridging the smooth neo-soul stylings of Jorja Smith and Solange with glimmers of IGOR-era Tyler, the Creator.
FELIVAND’s forthcoming sophomore EP follows on from her radiant 2018 debut, In Bloom, which won her early fans from COLORS, Bandcamp, Apple Music (Artist of the Week), triple j and more.
The New EP ‘Nerve‘ represents a maturation of her sound, a seamless slide into a slinkier, darker shade of pop that simultaneously expands her creative horizons while also capturing that rush of an artist currently coming into her own.
Look on one day from a particular angle, and you might hear the soundtrack to long, lonely nights spent spiralling down existential wells of everything ever said and done; look at it on another day and from another angle, and you might now hear the soundtrack to an endless Summer drive, where the wind courses through your hair and the immeasurable beauty of the world prickles at your senses.
FELIVAND New Single ‘Midsummer Sun‘ comes after his latest single ‘Trajectory‘ Which is Part of his Forthcoming EP ‘Nerve’
