There is an age old saying that you can’t judge a book by its cover, however, rising Brisbane artist Meredith is one of few exceptions. She creates music that is as effortless and free flowing as her long wavy hair and as utterly enthralling as the singer’s warm aura, yet still remains impossible to pigeon hole, taking cues from a vast range of influences.
Her journey began in 2010 when her desire to write and sing become a lone priority, something that utterly consumed the young performer. She travelled and lived in many Australian and Asian cities, before returning home to complete her studies. All of these experiences, of course, lend themselves directly to her music.
The scope of Meredith’s music is not something to be understated. Listening to new single, ‘Jumpin Beds’ it would be easy to class her music as the same brand of pop similar to the likes of Lorde, East and Montaigne. Listen closely, however, and you will hear Meredith’s masterful fusion of lo-fi indie pop production and folk influenced lyricism. Luring in listeners with an enchanting vocal performance the song makes its real impact with the introduction of brooding bass lines and snare claps that create a captivating wave of sound impossible to resist.
Always unpredictable yet consistently great, Meredith is both a hugely talented singer/songwriter and one of the alternative pop world’s most enthralling new muses. ‘Jumpin Beds’ is the first real introduction to this mysterious new artist which will undoubtedly leave audiences hanging on for more.
