Shelley Segal’s Background Noises

Shelley Segal’s sweet, wistful Background Noises is a song of quiet contemplation and resolve.

 

Having just returned from a huge 40-date tour in the USA, the dynamic singer songwriter continues her flirtatious, storytelling journey with a string of national dates, starting this month in Perth and ending in December at her regular Collins Square residency in Melbourne.
 
Lifted from her Strange Feeling EP (released May 2015), Background Noises shows a more vulnerable and delicate side to the prolific and often outspoken singer songwriter.  Written after the divorce of close friends, and trying to imagine the situation from their perspective, Shelley 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.  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.”

 

Shot and directed by Vince Lamberti (Bus Stop: Best Short Film 2011 Fist Full of Films Festival), the video documents the loss of the spaces that vanish with drastic life changes – the pain and sadness that comes with it. Says Shelley, “It also touches on the positives of the growth and gains that can come after loss.”
