Shel Bee – “Enough”

IMG_8084

Shel Bee is an emerging singer songwriter from L.A. delivering hazy yet contagiously accessible pop soundscapes throughout her newly released EP, Stomping Ground.

Standout “Enough” eerily begins with ritual chanting, conjuring images of the iconic party scenes from Eyes Wide Shut. Rather than descending into even darker territory, the ritual chanting leads to Shel Bee’s smoothly sonorous vocals instead of a secret occult, though the exotic soundscapes employed early on suggest a fun yet unpredictable route that could lead practically anywhere, including the polished pop hook it arrives at. Heavy use of anthemic synths combined with deep bass lines create a dark-pop atmosphere reminiscent of Lorde’s Pure Heroin, a very complementary comparison for any new artist in this vein.
