FELIVAND has been the sweetest treat of my week so far after discovering the beautiful talent through my discover weekly playlist. During a night of mindless scrolling, my attention was waring thin as I wasn’t able to find any new tunes that sparked my interest. Right before throwing in the towel for the night, I came across a song called, “Ebb & Flow” that completely changed the trajectory of my evening. I must’ve played the song on repeat for about 3 hours because all of a sudden, it was 4am without any time seeming to have passed by.
Once I listened enough, it was time to focus on the individual who crafted such a masterpiece and it was at this moment when I became obsessed with Australian based artist, FELIVAND. 21-year-old Felicity Vanderveen AKA FELIVAND is the next best thing to come out of Australia and her music is nothing but sheer proof of that statement. The young artist sings with the passion and conviction of a seasoned superstar while maintaining the grace and young beauty that her age reflects. Certain artists only come around once in a while. I’m talking about the Greats. The artists who shift culture. The unforgettable ones. FELIVAND belongs in this category and after this article; I’m sure you all will agree with me.
“Ebb & Flow” was enough to leave me content for the rest of the year, but to my surprise, Felicity decided to drop an EP today and it’s a certified must-listen in every single way! The 6 song project, called, Nerve might just BE the most impressive collection of songs that you’ll have the pleasure of listening to this week. Each song and each sound is nothing short of brilliance as the entire body of work continues to get better as you listen. It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to roll through a project without skips and FELIVAND’s Nerve EP gave me that experience again. The powerful storytelling paired with the stellar vocal talents makes this an amazing offering that you cannot afford to miss.
I discovered one of my new favorite artists and I’m so excited to share her with you all. I’ve attached the full EP Spotify link down below, so give it a listen and let us know what you think!
