One of the more exciting new Aussie acts out there, Chela has delivered a fantastic single titled ‘Romanticise,’ released on Kitsuné. It’s a bouncy slice of pop goodness that’s pretty hard to resist, evident in the fact that it’s only been floating around for about a week and already went to #1 on Hype Machine, and has well over 100k plays on soundcloud.
Her voice really just sounds so pure on this. You know how sometimes you have to listen to a song a few times around before you make up your mind about it? This isn’t one of those songs at all… or wasn’t for me anyway. It’s a catchy, upbeat song, with great songwriting and production. You may remember Chela as the vocalist in Goldroom’s song ‘Fifteen,’ but this is really her first big single release on a label, and seems like it’s going to be a bit of a breakout for her. Check out the video below.
The single was released as an EP, with an accompanying package of remixes. None of the remixes quite stands up to the original for me, but solid re-works all around. The Gold Fields remix stands out, putting a bit more dancey spin on ‘Romanticise.’
The original and all remixes are available on iTunes, and you can grab the remix above as a free download.
