Australian dark & sultry Chela releases new video for Zero

Chela-e1375755038226

Some girls just look better stony-faced and scowling. Australian cool girl Chela is one of them. Since releasing her 90s-inspired Zero mixtape filled with stormy electronic dance beats, she’s been hitting up festivals like SXSW (Friday March 14th @ The Madison) and touring with another MBF favourite, The Preatures. I first discovered Chela a few months ago after downloading her Zero mixtape on Soundcloud and I’ve been smitten ever since. Fun fact: she used to write rap breakdowns for her sister’s R&B tracks. She also used to be in a punk rock band in her teens.

Here are some of my favourite tracks and the brand new (just released today!) music video for Zero. She’s signed to Kitsuné Maison, one of my favourite electronic labels.

Her Zero EP (out March 10th via Kitsuné) isn’t available on iTunes yet, but keep your eyes peeled for the release.
