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

Track Name: Background Noises
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
Track Name: Strange Feeling
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
Track Name: Sidelined
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
Track Name: Leigh's Song II
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
Track Name: Cinema Chair
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
Track Name: Background Noises (Radio)

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

And be somebody else’s

What happened to these walls

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
