Event Details

When the album Lil’ Golden Book rocked up back in 2012, the curious delights of Princess Chelsea were unveiled. Although she’s probably best known for the indie pop charm of ‘The Cigarette Duet’, the album was dominated by an icy electronic collection of songs that Princess Chelsea’s record label rather accurately described as “the soundtrack to an old Disney movie meets Kraftwerk fronted by Enya in a 60s production of Les Mis… set in space”.

New Zealand-based Princess Chelsea has since kept a slow but steady output of music that continues along in a similar fashion. Her 2015 album The Great Cybernetic Depression took science fiction elements to build a concept album of sorts. The melancholic strains of songs such as ‘We’re So Lost’ were balanced out with the pure pop of tracks such as ‘Too Many People’.

Chelsea returned in 2016 with an album of covers in the form of Aftertouch. Here, she turned her talents to an eclectic choice of artists, including songs by Interpol, Elvis Presley, Lucinda Williams and The Beatles. The album also features Chelsea’s baroque pop approach to the Marianne Faithfull tune ‘Morning Sun’.
