Bringing forth her first release of 2018 with impeccable style, Australia’s Chela teams up with fellow compatriot Banoffee for arguably one of the finest indie/pop releases of the year in ‘Shut You Up’, a track that has plenty of bounce and colour splashed about with infectiously catchy melodies that will stay in your brain long after each listen.
What stands out from the word go is the perfect cohesion of the vocals of both Chela and Banoffee, both melting into each other with charismatic and playful melodies that brilliantly match the movement in the instrumentation. With vivacious percussion centred around bright synths and subtle force from the bass, the production levels that Chela has achieved in this piece deserves the highest acclaim as it hooks you in immediately and keeps you wanting more and more.
The accompanying music video depicts the tale of a fixation with N.O.M.A.D.I.C corporations latest video game, which results in an altered appearance due to its addiction. Directed by Chela, the video shows the tale of both herself and Banoffee trying to escape this through performing a ritual whilst journeying across LA. What results from this is an energetic display that perfectly matches the movement and energy that lies within the music.
Fans can catch Chela and Banoffee launching ‘Shut You Up’ in Melbourne on Wednesday 24th October at The Gasometer Hotel – tickets available now via Oztix.
