  • Mel Parsons announces Sabotage album and tour for June

    SABOTAGE is the Lyttleton-based artist’s sixth studio album and fans have already been given a sneak peak of the record, by way of the singles Little Sadness, and Offer Down.

     

    The album, recorded in Lyttleton at Basement Studio and co-written and produced with Josh Logan, sees a contemplative Parsons skillfully weaving together a tapestry of ethereal and hypnotic soundscapes. The songs are raw, and at times dark – perhaps a reflection of the time in which they started to emerge; written across lockdowns.

     

    The award-winning singer and songwriter is thrilled to finally have the album ready for release, and is candid about bringing the new record to the stage. “Playing live is nirvana to me… it’s hands down my favourite part of being an artist. It’s the only time I get to connect directly with my audience, and that’s a very special thing which I never take for granted."
