Rising singer/songwriter and multi-talented creative Mel Bailey is back with her first single of 2021, March.
Executed with flawless instrumentalisation and a commanding vocal, March is a bed of sonic prowess, a reflective showcase of self assurance and strength when others try to bring you down. The single floats in and out of an indie rock vibe however is propelled with Mel Bailey’s versatile and incredibly powerful voice. Weaving through verses mixing with a sweetness in the production the single generates to a boiling point of energy. Building ever quickly, punching through the core of feminine energy, consuming to a crescendo of Mel Bailey’s powerfully bliss tones.
In Mel Baileys words:
“March is an agglomeration of my inspirations to date. Growing up I would blast Beyoncé with my sister, so I wanted to include a taste of Beyoncé’s “Who Run The World?” to hold down the beat with a marching drum beat. My influences then turned to Anderson Park’s groove and funk which played a huge role in the bass and horn section. Then my trip to South America and in particular, The Amazon inspired a lot of self evaluation why I wanted to emulate with toucans, rattle snakes & monkeys throughout the track. Lyrically the track is a testament to my power for people who have tried to bring me down. It’s a reminder of self assurance and strength.”
In recent times Mel Bailey’s two previous singles Wait, Stop and earlier in 2020 Running To You solidified her status as a genuine powerhouse in the Sydney music scene. Anchoring herself as a staple to the rejuvenation of Sydneys’ live circuit, Mel Bailey and her incredibly talented band have performed to sold out venues throughout the last 6 months. Not only establishing her as an artist on the rise but one that can perform the house down on any stage. With growing support and popularity, 2021 is a platform for solidification and growth leading directly into a debut EP that could well propel Mel Bailey and her band to a sunset kissed time slot at a festival in a hurried time.
Dive into the world of the multi talented creative and get lost in her unique and beautiful energy as she stamps her feet with brand new single, March.
