Felivand

As FELIVAND, 22 year old Meanjin/Brisbane singer, songwriter and producer Felicity Vanderveen cultivates a unique brand of organic,textural Alternative Pop, burying shadowy, sombre depths beneath warm, earthen exteriors. Influenced by the likes of James Blake, Solange and Kali Uchis, she thus far garnered praise from COLORS, triple J, Bandcamp, Frankie, Apple Music (New Artist of the Week),Unearthed (Feature Artist) and more across a pair of EPs – her breezy, radiant 2018 debut, In Bloom, and its slinkier, darker-hued follow-up, 2020’s Nerve.
 
The story of FELIVAND is that of an artist continually growing into herself. From her earliest days of toying around with samples, chords and bass lines in the privacy of her bedroom, she has since opened up to outside collaborators, songwriters and producers,transposing her creative process from bedroom to studio. Freed from the onus of self- reliance, her songwriting found new air, the space to grow more intricate. Underneath rich bass lines, warm, jazz-flickered chords, harmonic vocal stacks and crisp percussion, lies undercurrents of dissonance, hints of ennui and melancholy that give shape to the emotional space FELIVAND’s music inhabits: a pensive optimism, wearied and slightly bruised by experience but persisting nonetheless, ruminating on knotty questions of mental health, spirituality, interpersonal connections and her own place in the world.
