Moody Beach
Moody Beach
'Mirage' EP Launch

Moody Beach is the brainchild of Sydney songwriter Melissah Marie. For Marie, music is a way of documenting what’s happening in her life. If you’ve ever seen Moody Beach perform, you’ll already know 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. I’m so done with these ideas of what a woman ‘should be'.” It’s a central part of who she is and through her music she hopes to make a little space for other women-identifying and gender fluid people who feel the same.

This year will see Moody Beach release some highly-anticipated new music, culminating in her sophomore EP ‘Mirage.’ Produced by Dean Tuza (Stella Donnelly, The Rubens, Thelma Plum), ‘Mirage’ will be released in early October & feature 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.”

Olive Rush is a singer-songwriter from Sydney, known for being one half of the dreampop duo EGOISM. Through a minimalist web of acoustic guitars, drum machines, and raw whispered vocals, Olive creates short songs with the goal of speaking directly to the person listening.
