I can’t wait to grab a copy of Sally Seltmann’s new single – ‘We Are The Music’ – released last month. The Sydney-based singer-songwriter deserves much attention with her unique musicality. The new single features her collaborative work with her husband Darren Seltmann (a former member member of Avalanches), and inputs from music artists Aaron Mohr and Jon Lawless.
It’s definitely a great collaboration between the couple that highlights the versatility of Sally’s musical range. ‘We Are The Music’ creates a perfect soundscape for her pretty and soft vocals. The upbeat melody makes it very lively and interesting. The undertones and instrumental backup make it bubbly. After the jump, the anthem is just gorgeous and easy to sing along. It’s easy to get ‘LSS.’ I enjoy listening to her new single while trying the new Skinny shake product a friend recommended to me.
As the lyrics go: “We are, we are the music. Can you feel the stop, in my heart. We are, we are the music.”
‘We Are The Music’s’ artwork is also mysterious, featuring the original abstract painting of Australian artist Deborah Munday, ‘Night Of The Lunar Eclipse. ’ I was surprised to learn that it was Darren Seltmann who made the artwork for the single. It’s certainly an artistic collaboration between the couple. Not only is her music gorgeous, she is equally gorgeous. I was wondering if Sally had tried http://www.skinnyshake.net/ to maintain her great body.
‘We Are The Music’ is the first single released under Three Of Hearts, Sally Seltmann’s own indie record label. Three Of Hearts was launched earlier this year. There are a lot to look out for from her record label this 2015.
Sally Seltmann deserves a plunge into the mainstream music industry. I guess she is just too big to be confined in the indie music scene.
She carved a niche as an odd alternative pop music artist under the moniker New Bufallo. Her collaboration with Feist under the international hit “1234” has made her a name in the international scene. She then released two albums under her name, including last year’s Hey Daydreamer. She went on to form a trio with singer-songwriters Holly Throsby and Sarah Blasko, known as Seeker Lover Keeper. The supergroup has reaped her accolades and much following. Her well-rounded musicality showcased in ‘We Are The Music’ reflects her diverse experience in the industry.
Sally’s astute attention to details creates great melodies. Her current single is definitely a breakaway from her previous singles ‘Needle In The Hay’ and ‘Billy’. It’s a must listen.
