What happened to All the background noises that told me I was home? I used to carry them in my ears But now inside my head it’s all alone I took your sound-track off my shelf I’m making room for somebody else It’s your colour coating I’d like to forget And be somebody else’s What happened to these walls What’s down these corridors that I don’t recognize What happened to our bed The place we laid our head for over ten years I took your sound-track off my shelf I’m making room for someone else It’s your colour coating I’d like to forget And be someone else’s

Strange feeling coz I'm never the heartbreaker I'm aways the heart broken but this time I got what I want now I'm gone short fix of emotion I don't want anyone tell myself over and over but I keep falling for anyone lost faith in my judge of character Could it be everything That I dreamed it would be Could it make all this settling feel like a bad dream Strange feeling watching you watch me open how quickly u cracked me oepn but this time the cynic peers from out of my mind it's watching and hoping That you could be everything That I dreamed it would be Could you make all this settling feel like a bad dream it's a strange feeling when it's in full swing it's a strange feeling That you could be everything That I dreamed it would be Could you make all this settling feel like a bad dream

Sidelined 03:50
You want a skinny lover And so I find I have the wrong body Even though I have the right mind You want a skinny lover And that’s perfectly fine But it means you will always want some other body More than you’ll want mine But this is familiar, it’s who we’ve become Slaves to aesthetic this is the tune that we hum Can we change who we are? Can we remove the filter from over our hearts? If you’re not beautiful you’ll be side-lined Can we let go of our pride Of how we look on the outside? Anyways I thought love was supposed to be blind You want a skinny lover And so I find I have the wrong body Even though I am the perfect kind But this is familiar, it’s who we’ve become Slaves to aesthetic this is the tune that we hum Can we change who we are? Can we remove the filter from over our hearts? If you’re not beautiful you’ll be side-lined Can we let go of our pride Of how we look on the outside? Anyways I thought love was supposed to be blind For the first time in my life I wish I was somebody else All those bottles of teenage self-consciousness Come tumbling down from the shelf But this is familiar its who we've become Slaves to aesthetic this is the tune, This is the tune that we hum Can we change who we are? Can we remove the filter from over our hearts? If you’re not beautiful you’ll be side-lined Can we let go of our pride Of how we look on the outside? Anyways I thought love was supposed to be blind

I cut off all my hair when you left me felt like it would never grow back at all now I'm healed and you want to forget me it's like there's no evidence left here that we were we at all Now it's four in the morning leigh and I miss you I know that I shouldn't but I do I just wish that we could talk sometimes like we used to I'd like to tell you that I'm happy I'd like to hear that you're ok It was never really your kind of conversation but I'd like to have it it anyway I cut off all my hair when you left me but it's all grown back by now It's even longer than before Now it's four in the morning leigh and I miss you I know that I shouldn't but I do I just wish that we could talk sometimes like we used to I'd like to tell you that I'm happy I'd like to hear that you're ok It was never really your kind of conversation but I'd like to have it it anyway I just want to share with u everything I've found This time I'm gonna let my hair grow till it touches the ground Now it's four in the morning leigh and I miss you I know that I shouldn't but I do I just wish that we could talk sometimes like we used to I'd like to tell you that I'm happy I'd like to hear that you're ok It was never really your kind of conversation but I'd like to have it it anyway

Cinema Chair 03:35
We could spend One weekend You could be my lover You could be my friend We would kiss with eyes closed But both of us could see That I was into you And you were into me And you whispered in my hair And you held me in the cinema chair You can touch my skin And I will let you in I’ll sing you songs that I’d forgotten I’ll sing you songs of where I’ve been You can hold my hand And take me so far I will hold you And everything you are And you whispered in my hair And you held me in the cinema chair Floating above us as though in a dream For a moment it feels like it could be us on that screen Tangled in the dark with nothing in between For a moment it feels like it could be us on that screen And you whispered in my hair And you held me in the cinema chair

about

Through her 'mercurial voice and eclectic sound' (The Brag) genre-defying singer songwriter Shelley Segal creates a space for her listeners. A space for people to engage with ideas, to question and to reflect on the everyday - to see it's layers, it's depth, it's meaning.

Desirous of all expressions, 'Strange Feeling' flirts with elements of jazz, folk, blues and pop.

Recorded at Birdland Studios, produced by Robert Upward and co-produced by Lindsay Gravina, the EP boasts a full palate of stunning arrangements performed by some of Australia's finest musicians, delicately encasing Shelley's incredible vocals and spirited stories.

'A master of creating experiential art' (Chris Hofstader -Skepchick)

'Thoughtful lyrics celebrating life, love and reason' (Julia Burke Buffalo Spree)

'Truly an artist with international flair' (AU review)

An artist, an activist and an explicit storyteller, Shelley uses her music not only to express the way she sees the world but to create the world she wants to see
