Moody Beach (Melodic Dreamy Shoegaze)
Moody Beach is the artistic project of Sydney songwriter Melissah Marie, a visual & musical expression of her life.
Marie's art is about ‘connection’ and through music & performance she tries to serve up some of life’s honesty and complexities.
Late 2019 saw Moody Beach release her highly anticipated sophomore EP ‘Mirage.’ Produced by Australian Dean Tuza (Stella Donnelly, The Rubens, Thelma Plum) ‘Mirage.’ Viewed together the EP forms a larger narrative, with each track leading into the next, exploring major themes of: Obsession and Control, Female Agency, The Reflection of Future/Past and Evolution of self. The EP culminates with new single “Chance,” a 5min shoegaze epic and a key moment from this colletion. Sampling the hypnotic drum beat from Total Control’s “Flesh War,” “Chance” soars with a feeling of euphoric melancholy.
With wonderful song writing, cinematic interludes, genre-exploring sounds, and a circular loop sonic aesthetic, “Mirage” truly is a work of art on multiple levels.
