Fun bouncy percussion and a well produced stop motion music video are the pieces that make up “Upside Down” by Melody Chebrellan. The video is comparable to artists such as the Tuneyards, a colorful display and a left of center shot make this lighthearted piece enjoyable. Currently working on her LP in Austin Texas Melody Chebrellan has released an EP and single that are also worth checking out. You can pre-order the new release here: https://melodychebrellan.bandcamp.com
Attached below is the artist biography.
“The daughter of a street musician and singer-songwriter, Melody’s playground was the practice session and the live show her lullaby. By the second grade she was doing Apple Jacks commercials and improvising onstage with BB King’s daughter at grade-school assemblies. In 2013 she moved to Berlin and began singing in an 8 piece soul cover band, playing spots like the famous Clärchens Ballhaus. After a year of performing some of her favorite Motown hits, she decided to focus on writing and producing original music. In 2015 Melody released her debut EP, Often Unrequited, written and recorded in her bedroom closet. She then teamed up with singer-songwriter Caitlin Cook to form an indie folk duo, Little Hermit, and together they released Thanks Mangled Brain. Now she is living in Austin, TX set to release her debut LP Comets and other drifting bodies, an exploration of the spaces between us, the vastness within us, and the little bits of magic that bridge the distance.”
