London's Night Beach Records is to release a super limited run of coloured vinyl of Petite Meller's NYC Time along with a new remix by US duo Betablock3rs, and B-side Conspiracy.
Backed with a haunting vocal from Brooklyn-born singer Merlin Bronques and built around a hypnotic wind up toy-like melody, NYC Time proves a typically unique and catchy pop song. "The music I used to listen to as a child carries me back to where it all really came from. I wanted to show this voyage from an empty suburbia a la Antonioni's "L'Eclipse" to the influential rhythm of magical NY." Meller originally wrote Conspiracy as a lullaby for her grandmother.
The video for NYC Time has already clocked up over 200,000 views on YouTube, and was created by Petite alongside director A.T.Mann and Napoleon Habeica. It was the same team who Meller worked with on previous Night Beach release Backpack, which was nominated at the Cannes Festival Young Director Awards 2014 for Best European Music Video.
Petite Meller is a purveyor of obscure, visceral pop that celebrates the surreal and the absurd, Meller says: "I only make music for the reason that I didn't have anyone to dance with,". Fans include Radio 1's Rob da Bank and Huw Stephens, who were blown away by her much talked-about debut single Backpack. Meller currently lives in London and is working on her debut album.
It's nothing like the country vibe we were anticipating.
