Bio

Bearing raw emotions of jealousy, loneliness and fear, Perth's Segers delivers an edgy slice of brooding indie-pop with her latest single, Sip Your Scotch. This intriguing juxtaposition of sweet melody and bitter emotion creates a lulling mood that is at once both uplifting and melancholic – highlighting the power that comes from pairing a carefully crafted song with a natural, uninhibited voice.

Superbly produced and mixed by Cam Bluff (Amy Shark, Allday), Sip Your Scotch is a humble song that rises to greatness. There is no wall of guitar, no symphonic orchestra... just simple hooks layered so as to rise and fall with Segers' effortlessly beautiful voice.

Segers says of the new track, "I wrote Sip Your Scotch at a time when I had this love for people that weren’t that good for me. It wasn’t specifically about one person but it was the combination of a few different interactions and relationships. It was so significant to learn about myself and what it was I was so drawn to. I tend to have a whole heap of feelings about things then I write about them and it kind of helps me make sense of it all. Sometimes the people you love aren’t the ones you are meant to be with."

Following on from 2017's charming singles The Wandering and Call Out Loud, Sip Your Scotch quite naturally finds Segers stepping into her own as a singer and songwriter. As a talented multi-instrumentalist, there is a broad spectrum of ideas that Segers can execute with fluidity and ease. Within a handful of minutes, Sip Your Scotch displays everything this exciting new voice has to share... and the boundless potential that lays in front of her.

Under the moniker of Segers, Stacey-Ann Pietersen's debut EP Little Lines forged the path that she is now on – introducing the world to a musical force of equal parts talent and humility. Part of the new generation of Australian artists who brandish both the skill and determination to earn their place in the public consciousness, Segers has the potential to be a true breakthrough – bridging the gap between honest songwriting and big radio-friendly pop hooks.

Moody, lowkey pop that lives by virtue of Stacey’s vocal. Some warm keys are the padding but she’s the gold.

chorus was in my head after one listen through and it's not come out since.

I can't get over that voice. It just lifts this song to buoyant heights.
