Our Feature Artist For September - Chela

13 Sep 2019

Hot on the heels of the release of her recent single ‘Heart O’ Hearts’ our September feature artist Chela, the tangerine haired alt-pop princess, has sprung back into the limelight. 

Since bursting onto the scene in 2012 with her single ‘Full Moon’, Chela has hit strength after strength with her next release ‘Romanticise’ sitting on over five million Spotify streams. Her success has carried her to collaborations with Banoffee, Paces, Goldroom and Clubfeet and festival performances at SXSW and Coachella. With her glassy pop infused catalogue recently surpassing 20 million streams and climbing. 'Heart O' Hearts' is Chela's second release from her forthcoming EP and follows the release of 'Losing Belief'. The track was met with rave reviews from FADER, The Line of Best Fit, Fashion Journal and NPR, played on triple j Unearthed and triple j and was added to FBi rotation.

Her recent single ‘Heart O’ Hearts’ was Chela’s “mantra for quieting down the dark side of yourself”. It also developed into an international project with production happening in Melbourne with her friend and collaborator Le Bruc before travelling over to hollywood for a look over from Andrew Lappin, being mastered by Brixton’s Chris Zane before LA’s Sameer Sengupta gave it the final polish.

With her upcoming EP due for release on October 25th, Chela’s definitely an artist to keep an ear out for this spring.
