Bio

FELIVAND is the project of 20 y/o producer/singer/songwriter Felicity Vanderveen. The young Australian artist has been releasing music onto Soundcloud since the age 15.

Resorting to writing and producing from her sparse bedroom studio in Brisbane, she has since been accumulating a unique and evolving discography. The spring of 2018 saw the release of her debut E.P ‘In Bloom’ and her standout track, ‘Same Old’ and 2019 has seen the release of her most recent single ‘Waitin’ for You’.

Her DIY sound pairs sophisticated Neo-soul footnotes with dreamy trip-hop textures, and has been accurately described by Earmilk as “a genre-fusing act... making her mark with her unique pop-tinged soul music.”

In a live setting, her homegrown tunes are brought to life by her 4-piece live band. FELIVAND have performed alongside the likes of Tora, Odette, Tyne-James Organ, ASTA, Golden Vessel and CLEA to name a few.

There's so much space to move in this track! The whole thing is like lowkey opulence and Felivand sounds so suited to it.

Floats, but never drifts off too far that you lose interest.
