Discovery: Felicity Groom

Felicity Groom is an Australian electro pop artist whose work is inspired by a mix of the autobiographical and the spiritual. Her new track Hey Sun is dedicated to Heath Ledger, someone she grew up alongside.

By Graeme Smith

Hey Sun is a mix of dreamy vocals and driving bass and, in that regard, it reminds me of Goldfrapp. It’s not quite dance music and it’s not quite ambient and becomes a wonderful hybrid of the two.

The track is a loving tribute to an actor we lost too young and Felicity uses her own experience of Heath to add a grounded authenticity to the lyrics. The overall effect is something quite lovely.
