Princess Chelsea Reader Find

By Princess Chelsea in New Music on Thursday 5 January 2012

The Cigarette Duet is from an album I released earlier this year called Lil’ Golden Book. I recorded Lil’ Golden Book in various bedrooms I occupied from 2008-2011. I wrote The Cigarette Duet in about half an hour on a busted up Roland E-20 keyboard, sitting cross-legged on the floor of probably the most grim […]

Golden Axe were one of the first live bands I saw in Auckland, New Zealand where I live. They are a duo who play distorted ‘Nintendo’ style pop via old casio synthesizers, and homemade gadgets and effects pedals.

By Princess Chelsea in New Music on Saturday 17 December 2011

From outside of Wellington comes a very young bedroom producer who makes his own magical brand of sexy Italo disco while also creating his own album art and animating his own music videos. He will often sing female-style backup vocals in falsetto and shred hair metal guitar solos over his beats. The majority of New […]
