Marchelle Bradanini Confronts The Spiritual Void Of Consumer Culture In 2020 w/ “Chinese New Year” Single/Video

LA-based singer/songwriter Marchelle Bradanini will release her debut solo full length effort Only A Woman on July 3. Appropriately timed around the Fourth of July holiday, the album poetically paints clever, sardonic and highly relatable imagery of troubling, contemporary subject matter: gender inequality, mansplaining, the emptiness of consumer culture and the “brutal pendulum swing” from the Obama presidency to Trump’s. 

As the primary caregiver for her two young children and unable to tour over the last few years, Bradanini took that time to re-establish her political voice through boots-on-the-ground canvassing, registering new voters, letter-writing and online phone banking on behalf of candidates and organizations including: Stacy Abrams’ Fair FightKatie PorterMoms DemandSwing Left and Emily’s List. Today, she releases the new Chinese New Year” single/video tackling the topic of consumerism and questioning what it means to be free in 2020. A satirical take on The Wizard of Oz set in modern day America amidst the weed shops, strip clubs and $5 dollar psychics, she sings: “Just cause you yell don’t mean you’re heard / I’m so tired of feeling useless / Consumed by modern apathy / I think I read it on a postcard / Just cause you think don’t mean you’re free”.
