Melbs bb’s lush indie-pop will make you dance and cry all at once

When did you first start making music and what led you there?

I always wanted to be a musician but my parents were pretty opposed, so after a failed attempt at an arts degree, I went against their advice and enrolled in a music degree, joined my first band and now do my own thing in Melbs bb.

Tell us about your new single, ‘Astrology (clothesline)’.

I thought western astrology was bogus until last year when I actually looked into my chart and it suspiciously made a lot of sense. I had a bit of a meltdown, went for a drive and wrote this song.

How would you describe your sound and how did you come to it?

It jumps around but I’d describe it as lush indie pop. I’ve always been obsessed with guitars and synths so those feature quite heavily in my music. My dark past in a shoegaze band also bleeds through a bit.

What can we expect from your upcoming single launch at The Workers Club?

The set itself will be full of highs and lows so you can have a dance and also a cry but in terms of the vibe, I always try to keep things really casual so everyone feels like they’re just hanging with mates. It’s a very inclusive vibe.

What’s next for Melbs bb?

Another single in a couple of months and an EP to follow shortly after. It’s all written and ‘Astrology (clothesline)’ is a pretty good teaser for what’s ahead.

Melbs bb launches her new single, ‘Astrology (clothesline)’, at The Workers Club on Thursday February 27. Grab your tix via Oztix.
