London based’s Parisienne singer-songwriter Petite Meller writes obscure, visceral pop, that celebrates the surreal and the absurd, in the everyday: “I only make music for the reason that I didn’t have anyone to dance with” she says.
Check out ‘NYC Time’ (out August 18 via Night Beach Records), a hypnotic pop gem featuring the haunting vocal from Brooklyn-born singer Merlin Bronques. Petite explains: “The music I used to listen to as a child carries me back to where it all really came from. I wanted to show this voyage from an empty suburbia a la Antonioni’s “L’Eclipse” to the influential rhythm of magical NY.”
The track is perfect follow up to ‘Backpack’ video, which was nominated at the Cannes Festival Young Director Awards 2014 for Best European Music Video.
