Shelley Segal New Single and Australian Tour

Spirited Melbourne singer and songwriter Shelly Segal has just returned from a massive 40 date tour in the US and announced the release of new single Background Noises and a string of national tour dates spanning a month.

Background Noises is from the Strange Feeling EP which released in May 2015. It is a melodic and layered song filled with keys, strings and horns showcasing a more delicate and vulnerable side to the prolific and outspoken young singer songwriter.

Segal wrote this song after the divorce of close friends as she tried to imagine the situation from their perspective. She explains:

The chorus seems to mean something different to me each time I sing it. Sometimes a shock, a deep loss, a painful reminder, an acceptance, a coming to terms with, a finality, a longing, an assertiveness, a future, a determinedness. As such a change would at different times of reflection. It’s not just a love or relationship lost but a physical place – a space and time that was all encompassing and is now gone.”


The video clip is shot and directed by Vince Lamberti and visually captures the emotions of the song. It is quite a melancholy clip, very sedate and mournful until the moving on phase of the process starts.

It’s documenting the loss of the spaces that vanish with drastic change and the accompanying pain and sadness,” explains Shelley. “It also touches on the positives of the growth and gains that can come after loss.”

Shelley Segal is a passionate and engaged touring artist thrilled to be back in Australia to play for local fans.
