Chelsea Jade | Visions

October 7, 2014 at 4:40 am Leave a comment

Auckland’s Chelsea Jade will be releasing “Beacons” EP this month and her single, “Visions”, is the teaser — which you can download for free at her soundcloud page. I remember first hearing Jade a few years ago when she sung under the moniker of Watercolours. A song like “Under” was a gorgeous mix of warped electronics, subdued double-tracked vocals and a kind of muted sensuality. I’d also seen some videos of her singing live and her vocals are even stronger in that format, soulful and full-throated. There’s really no either-or here, but rather she’s just a singer who can go a variety of directions. Her more hushed recorded style is more soft and lush. Her more R&B-based, hypnotic “Kyoto Train” is beautiful — and it’s a signature for her style, pretty overlapping vocal harmonies bleeding into clicking percussion and warm synth. (Which I thought made her original moniker appropriate.) Her upcoming EP release was produced by Justyn Pilbrow in New York and Ben Lawson in Auckland.  ‘Beacons’ will feature six new tracks, including “Visions”, which sounds like her best track yet: “Then licking sediment like it’s the salt / On the back of my hands / Erosion supposing / You don’t know the lay of your own land.” Follow Chelsea Jade at facebook and twitter. You can watch a new video for her song, “Night Swimmer” at YouTube. — David D. Robbins Jr.
