Soundstalker - Pikelet


Rolling her head back whilst lightly tapping a drum and asking the crowd
“Have you ever felt like the weakest link in a long chain of the prettiest daises?”

Thus was my first experience of Pikelet, the strongest link in Melbourne’s underground music scene.
Her first album focussed on her voice being as smooth as a black mans chest. Now Random
Recordings 2, oppositely, has a funk-pop-electronic fused sound. You know you’re in for a music
treat when an artist’s album is completely different from the last but just as good.

With songs such as ‘TRY REALLY HARD TO RELAX’ Pikelet carries a sense of humour mediated with an
element of loveliness through everything she does. Pikelet has recently played at the famous
travelling Spiegel tent and backed Devandra Banhart in January for his Big Day Out sideshow. This
home grown honey-pie usually plays around the city, so keep your eyes on her events page and have
a Pikelet experience of your own.
