BVLLVDS is the stage name chosen by Korean Australian artist Alice Amsel, who is also pitch mistress for the renowned Sydney collective Bad Bitch Choir, to represent her first solo release.
Taking cues from the origins of the word “ballad” – on her debut EP, Apertures, equal thought is put into the melodic and lyrical paths taken.
Produced in collaboration with Jed Holmes and LUX NRM on “As Above, So Below”, BVLLVDS embraces her Korean heritage visually and echoes the distinct gothic leanings of her artwork.
Here Amsel harnesses strong and defiant body language to convey there is empowerment in the softer and personal parts of her music. Staring straight down the barrel of the camera, throwing the viewer’s gaze back at them, asks the viewer to question the stances within everyone involved in the exchange.
The song itself takes the listener from a place of confrontation, regret and ultimately defiance - as punctuated by the crescendo in the final chorus, signalling the end of the song.
