Kelis hits the Bandroom this July

By  |  0 Comments

International superstar Kelis will perform a one-off Melbourne show at St Kilda’s Prince Bandroom on July 24.

The sultry singer sauntered into the charts as a sonically compelling 20-year-old whose infamous track ‘Milkshake’ became a global sensation.

Kelis has swapped out some sexy for soul on her new album Food, which reveals her at her most frank and vulnerable.

Littered with a transcendent, Spector-esque lift, warm bottom ends and vast depth, the music is the perfect backdrop for Kelis’ unique voice. The latter has only improved with time and experience and the album candidly explores pain, happiness and everything in between.

Bringing on board Dave Sitek as producer (guitarist in acclaimed Brooklyn experimentalists TV On The Radio and producer to indie darlings such as the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Foals and Liars), the album delivers a sound that’s rootsy without ever being self-consciously retro; pitching live horns and gospel organ against electronics

Capture this against her colourful career thus far – having already received two Grammy nominations, Platinum and Gold records, BRIT, Q and NME Awards and dozens of top 10 singles to her name, alongside collaborations with the likes of Björk, Raphael Saadiq, Moby, Outkast, P Diddy and Calvin Harris, and it’s clear that Kelis is a progressive and exciting artist who has a whole lot more to give.

Don’t miss this opportunity to see such an influential artist in such an intimate venue.
