Show Review

We recently teamed up with our friends at Industry City, Bust Magazine, and Filament at The Landing to help put together an event celebrating Women's History Month (Marth). Baes + Brews - a relaxed, cocktail-powered take on our Bands + Brews series - took place here at Industry City in Sunset Park BK last month, bringing a variety of folks together for some delicious bites, refreshing drinks, and music, curated by yours truly.

One of those artists was Felicity; an 18 year-old, South African vocalist who packs a voice that reminisces of some of those other artists you know by first name only (Adele, Florence, etc.). Now residing in the states, Felicity is starting to make her mark, particularly with her single "Pilot with a Fear of Heights". "It's about fulfilling a destiny you know you have to, even though you're still afraid of what the outcome might be," she told us after a stripped down, acoustic performance for the event. Accompanied by a cellist and guitar player, her performance here is any many ways an ode to her roots. Though she started singing when she was 10 or 11, she discovered the violin much earlier in life. Even that was apparently part of some greater plan. "I did classical music so I could do pop music, if that makes sense. So the transition has been amazing because I love pop music".

Transcript

I'm a glass You fill me up
Make me feel like I am beautiful
And if I crack, If I spill out
Not to fear, you showed me how to keep myself half full
And this certainty makes me feel so uncertain
The way I feel 'bout you Like a light through the curtains
If love's dancing on a fire Let the flames burn high
the way you lookin' at me You spark and I'm the gasoline
If love's dancing on a fire Let the flames burn high
I can't believe what I see You fascinate me
and we're dancing on a fire Dancing on a fire
Never been a fool for games
Here you are turning me into some damn cliche, okay
You light me up, illuminate
We're in the dark now hand in hand You got me through this haze
This certainty makes me feel so uncertain
The way I feel 'bout you Like a light through the curtains
If love's dancing on a fire Let the flames burn high
the way you lookin' at me You spark and I'm the gasoline
If love's dancing on a fire Let the flames burn high
I can't believe what I see You fascinate me
and we're dancing on a fire Dancing on a fire
Ooh yeah Dancing on a fire
If love's dancing on a fire Let the flames burn high
the way you lookin' at me You spark and I'm the gasoline
If love's dancing on a fire Let the flames burn high
I can't believe what I see You fascinate me
and we're dancing on a fire Dancing on a fire
Always had a sweet tooth Never could avoid it
But baby you're my weakness And you're just my type
When you said forever Sounded like you meant it
Caramel intentions but you're just all hype
We were sticky-sweet Good enough to eat
Thought you'd stick around When the season changed
Didn't taste the same Came crashing down
Oh, I can't get the taste out my mouth
'Cause your lips taste like burnt sugar now
What kind of flame came and burned down the house
Cause those lips taste like burnt sugar now
oh, oh, oh, oh
We were always headed Headed some place bitter
In the wrong direction and it took one bite
We were sticky-sweet Good enough to eat
Thought you'd stick around When the season changed
Didn't taste the same Came crashing down
Oh, I can't get the taste out my mouth
'Cause your lips taste like burnt sugar now
What kind of flame came and burned down the house
'Cause those lips taste like burnt sugar now
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Bitter, salty, sugar, sweet Should've seen what's underneath
Everything behind your candy shell Come on taste your medicine
A tablespoon of cinnamon Tell me how that feels upon your tongue
Oh, I can't get the taste out my mouth
'Cause your lips taste like burnt sugar now
What kind of flame came and burned down the house
'Cause those lips taste like burnt sugar now
Oh, oh, oh, oh
- Thank you.
Thank you Who would've thought love could paralyze Stuck in a lust we can't deny
Drifting away to this vacant high
Oh, it's a sick thing It's deadly
It's leading me to my grave
I'm craving you baby Yeah you're so close to me
A bite of your apple is all that I need
You're like poison, You're like poison
I look in your eyes and I'm numb to the touch
A taste of your venom it's all just too much
You're like poison, You're my poison
I took a lethal dose of you Did what I swore I'd never do
Oh, you're a sick thing You're deadly
You're leading me to my grave
I'm craving you baby Yeah you're so close to me
A bite of your apple is all that I need
You're like poison, You're like poison
I look in your eyes and I'm numb to the touch
A taste of your venom it's all just too much
You're like poison, You're my poison
The room is spinning, I'm out of my head
Tried to get up But my heartbeat's a mess, oh
and I can't see past these warning signs
But I don't care at least not for tonight
I'm craving you baby Yeah you're so close to me
A bite of your apple is all that I need
You're like poison, You're like poison
I look in your eyes and I'm numb to the touch
A taste of your venom is all just too much
You're like poison, You're like poison
You're like poison, You're my poison
- Thank you.
You should have seen her Eyes like a dreamer
Lookin' for her way back home, yeah
Footsteps heavy Balance steady
She packed her bags and slammed the door
Art and spirit almost on Walkin' backwards through the storm
But I always knew these northern lights
would lead back to you, back to you
So I can almost see the colors in my range
These northern lights they lead back to you, back to you
The frigid cold winds Left me in ruins
And dire need of warmth But line all finished
So close she could taste it Upon her tone you gave her world
Art and spirit almost on Walkin' backwards through the storm
But I always knew these northern lights
would lead back to you, back to you
'Cause I can almost see the colors in my range
These northern lights they lead back to you, back to you
Aah, aah, aah
All these northern lights, ooh
But I always knew these northern lights
would lead back to you, back to you
'Cause I can almost see the colors in my range
These northern lights they lead back to you, back to you
These northern lights have led me back to you
- Thank you.
Thank you.
Ooh, ooh, ooh
I'm treading water Like a preacher's daughter
Put my thoughts in order If I'm moving forward
I've been looking at the skyline and our timeline
I will soon run out of both
Steering clear of your face and the old days
Hoping they'll turn into ghosts
I've been thinking 'bout you all night Like a pilot with a fear of heights
You got me thinking ooh, ooh
I've been thinking 'bout you all night Like a tiger that's afraid to bite
You got me thinking ooh, ooh
Woah, woah
This is so unnatural That we're on this level
'Cause my heart's surrendering For this new beginning
Never thought I'd see this Your lips sitting right here on my own
Baby, you're my weakness, my addiction And I'm giving up my heart
I've been thinking 'bout you all night Like a pilot with a fear of heights
You got me thinking ooh, ooh
I've been thinking 'bout you all night Like a fire that's afraid to light
You got me thinking ooh, ooh
Free fall, free fall, free fall, free fall
I've been thinking 'bout you all night Like a pilot with a fear of heights
You got me thinking ooh, ooh
I've been thinking 'bout you all night Yeah, ooh, ooh
Woah, woah, woah, woah
- Thank you.
