Brisbane alt-pop/neo-soul artist FELIVAND has dropped her new single ‘Trajectory’. The track sees FELIVAND – the creative moniker of songwriter Felicity Vanderveen – combine elements of smooth neo-soul with a DIY bedroom-pop approach.
‘Trajectory’ was co-written and produced by Vanderveen’s good friend, Allan McConnel of Close Counters. An official music video accompanies the release, directed by another of Vanderveen’s close friends, Levi Cranston.
The first video Vanderveen has ever released for a song, the clip was shot on Super 16mm film. Filled with 1940s and 1970s imagery, the video’s events play out in sequence with the song itself, with images repeating alongside established rhythms and melodies and new visuals gradually being introduced to the storyline as the track develops.
It centres around themes of “manipulation, backstabbing and one-upping that run quietly rampant when your interactions with other people are built off a transactional, business-like logic”.
Watch the video below:
‘Trajectory’ is the first taste of new music from the 20-year-old producer and multi-instrumentalist since the release of her 2018 debut album ‘In Bloom’, and her recent single, ‘Waitin’ For You’.
Since she began performing under the name FELIVAND, Vanderveen has toured the country and supported the likes of Odette, TORA, ASTA, Golden Vessel and more.
