Following on from a breakout 2020 through a string of impressive singles and the sophomore EP ‘Nerve’, Brisbane/Meanjin, Australia-based singer, songwriter and producer Felivand continues to amaze us with her first release of the year in ‘Where Were you’ as well as news of signing with Sweat It Out (label), UNIFIED (management), and Niche Productions (agent).
‘Where Were You’ comes through with a fresh blend of neo-soul influence that provides us with a sublime and warm soundscape filled with a juicy rhythm section and glowing keys to set the platform in tact for the spell-binding vocals to launch from. Felivand‘s melodies deliver a warmth across the mix that comes across like a giant hug with its uplifting nature, and once we hear those dreamy harmonies enter the spectrum in the chorus we see that extra touch of polish add that extra little bit of shine throughout.
“I wrote Where Were You after realising someone wasn’t there for me in a way I thought they would be. I felt let down and forgotten and this song is a pretty raw and impassioned outlet of that feeling.” – FELIVAND
