“Where Were You” marks a new chapter for FELIVAND, as she announces a number of new signings. Of her signing to Sweat It Out, UNIFIED Music Group & Niche Productions, she remarks that “It’s such a nice feeling to have a team of people who actively champion you and trust wholeheartedly in your creative decisions. I’m extremely excited to be starting this new chapter in my career with such a passionate team backing me. I was self-managed for a number of years, so signing with my manager was honestly one of the best things that’s ever happened to me. So much work goes on behind the scenes that you wouldn’t think of, it’s such an important and special working relationship that I really cherish”.
“Where Were You” follows FELIVAND’s 2020 sophomore EP Nerve, a bewitching, seamless slide into slinkier, darker shades of pop for her soul-tinged music that was hailed as “sublime” by COLORS, “an intoxicating blend of bedroom pop and neo-soul” from Bandcamp and “stunning in every regard” via Lyrical Lemonade. Scoring triple j support, community radio love and triple j Unearthed’s Feature Artist, Nerve marked a maturation of FELIVAND’s sound, a unique brand of organic, textural neo-soul and woozy, wistful bedroom pop influenced by the likes of James Blake, Solange and Kali Uchis. It came after a debut EP In Bloom that boasts more than 12 million combined streams.
Coming up, FELIVAND will take to the stage for a headline show in her hometown of Brisbane/Meanjin. Performing at Black Bear Lodge on November 19, audiences will be among the first to witness “Where Were You” in the live domain, alongside beloved singles from Nerve and Bloom. Later this year and into 2022, she will support Mallrat during her Sunshine Coast and Gold Coast dates.
FELIVAND, now making her debut with a new team behind her, expands upon the lyrical honesty she has long cultivated. Embedding hints of dissonance below its luxurious veneer, “Where Were You” today carves out the rare emotional space that FELIVAND’s wonderfully tactile music inhabits. Make sure to soak up every second of it today.
