Brisbane artist, Clea, recently marked her reemergence to the fold with her euphoric new single ‘Soft Blow To The Head’.
“‘Soft Blow to the Head’ relives the moments in which you slip back into the enchanting toxicity of a domineering person, eventually gaining the courage and hindsight to move forward,” Clea explains. “It’s like a deep breath with a long sigh, it moves through emotion without rest and reveals that, in order to really appreciate your best life, you sometimes have to go through a bad experience.”
Clea floated into our lives some four years ago with her debut single ‘Polyester’. 2017 saw the young artist release her first body of work – her Fairweather EP. But it was her debut album Vermillion (2018) that shook the public into consciousness. Taken from Vermillion, Clea’s breakout moment came in the form of the single ‘Dreaming’; which saw her take the win for the 2019 Song Of The Year at the Queensland Music Awards. The same year, Clea made Mark Ronson’s ’Nothing Breaks Like A Heart’ her very own during a breathtaking triple j Like A Version.
Clea’s music is a collection of moments, a living-breathing document of life’s rich pageant. Never wanting to repeat anything twice, Clea sees constant renewal an integral aspect of her creativity and life. Clea’s creative passion expresses itself through song, video, fashion and captivating live performances. 2020 sees Clea hit the ground running with an invigorated and re-focused vision, a sophomore album in her sights, a renewed sense of independence and a longing to act as a positive creative force.
