Moody Beach is the artistic project of Sydney songwriter Melissah Marie. Her art is about ‘connection’ and through music & performance she tries to serve up some of life’s honesty and complexities.
If you’ve ever seen Moody Beach perform, you’ll see how she owns her space on stage. “A woman’s body is still a controversial subject,” Marie remarks, “it’s something I consciously tackle through my music, alongside how I behave and what I wear.” Sometimes that’s confronting for people. Marie has been told that it “distracts from [her] music…” a particularly disappointing critique in the middle of the Me Too era. “Mate, I am my music!” Marie responds “I get to decide what that looks like.” It’s a central part of who she is and through her music she hopes to make a little space for others whom feel the same.
October 4 sees Moody Beach release her highly anticipated sophomore EP ‘Mirage.’ Produced by Australian Dean Tuza (Stella Donnelly, The Rubens, Thelma Plum) ‘Mirage’ features multiple singles as described by Marie: “When it comes to music, I’m not scared to experiment with genres. ‘Mirage’, is a collection of all my favourite sounds. Pop to shoegaze, flamenco to dark-wave – all fitting together in a sonic loop.”
