The metamorphosis of gifted folk singer/songwriter Celia Pavey into the electro pop powerhouse Vera Blue has been as visually electrifying as it has musically scintillating.
It began with the release of the critically lauded EP “Fingertips” and its achingly ethereal breakthrough platinum single “Hold”. Musically, the track fuses Pavey’s raw lyrical insights and captivating vocals with elegant, hypnotic electronica.
The rapturously received debut album “Perennial” came next; along with that dance-inducing, double platinum single “Regular Touch” – and its far more cinematic visual direction. The album saw Vera Blue play 5 completely sold out Australian tours, European/UK and USA dates, and multiple festivals including Lollapalooza and Splendour in the Grass.
The blinding success of “Perennial” was followed by the globally penetrating Flume collab “Rushing Back” (#2 on Triple J’s Hottest 100); and a handful of chart topping post album singles. The breezily melodic “All The Pretty Girls” scales down the electronica and turns up the folk-pop; while singles “The Way That You Love Me”, “Lie To Me” and “Temper” showed the start of the next exhilarating chapter in the Vera Blue Odyssey.
