May the Fourth was an interstellar blast Friday night at Cheer Up Charlies as live-looping, experimental pop sensation Sydney Wright screened her transcendental new music video, ‘Seiche’. The empowering ballad is the second single and title frack from Wright’s forthcoming album.
The video release party featured performances on both inside and outside stages at Cheer Ups.
“The bill is full of my incredible music fam and favorite local bands that I’ve gotten to run sound for,” stated Wright. “I’m really stoked to celebrate our hustle at my home venue, Cheer Up Charlies.”
Hot n’ heavy dream-pop duo The Please Please Me kicked-off the single release party on the outside stage with an immersive performance of alternative-pop, Americana and funky electronic while Calliope Musicals’ sunny frontwoman, Carrie Fussell, warmed the crowd inside. The eccentrically funky and always captivating Ladyfang brought out The Force with their jedi-infused performance and Otis Wilkins sang cosmic Americana stories on the inside stage.
Draped in a luminescent, intergalactic get-up and running around at lightspeed all night, Sydney Wright finally hit the stage to premier her beautifully reflective ‘Seiche’ video. The video is an otherworldly experience seeped in self-empowerment. Its urgency rises and falls stirring waves of emotion as the music builds in sweeping, anthemic proportions towards its ultimate climax.
“’Seiche’ is about rejecting the influences that are reflections of others and regaining freedom in our own choices and identity,” claims Wright. ‘Seiche’ is available everywhere now and the video will be officially released later this week.
