Princess Chelsea

"I'm kinda like New Zealand's answer to Katy Perry… but with a vintage aesthetic". So says Chelsea Nikkel a.k.a. Princess Chelsea - only partially tongue in cheek - during this charming, fun session, captured live at Roundhead studios in Auckland.

Attended by a band including Jonathan Bree of The Brunettes and Little Chief Records, and co-conspirators from Chelsea's former band TeenWolf, we eavesdrop on songs from the album Lil' Golden Book. These woozy pop tunes feature glockenspiel, xylophone and whirly, while telling tales of boyfriends, personality clashes, smoking, drinking, the 'great' Kiwi O.E. …and the end of the world.
