Eccentric pop album Strange Things by Sharliza Jelita out now

Sharliza Jelita releases her debut album Strange Things on 25 June 2012 through independent label Headtones. 

Recorded at London's famous Strongroom Studios, Strange Things is an eccentric, eclectic pop journey through bright indie power-pop tunes such as first single No Go Pogo - which had random people pogo-ing the streets of London in its unofficial video ( - and the dark, spiritual electro title track Strange Things, which was featured on BBC Radio Tom Robinson's blog as Fresh Fave of the Week and on his mixtape on BBC 6 music.  

According to Sharliza, "Strange Things represents clandestine thoughts, joys and fears, from the mundane to the sublime, strange in its execution but universal in its themes to anyone who has truly lived." 

Sharliza’s solo work is influenced by the likes of Hot Chip, the Futureheads, Janelle Monae and James Blake. Her flamboyance and eccentric outlook on life makes for observational songwriting which covers urban life, adventure, infidelity, rebellion, liberation and the afterlife.  

With live shows planned this summer in the UK and her native Singapore, the now Hackney-based Sharliza will be launching her album with a bang at 333 Mother Bar, Old Street, London, EC1V 9LE on Thursday 28 June 2012. Her live performances are what draw in the crowds, with mechanical rabbits, LED rings and flying fridge magnets, which have led to it being described as 'Hot Chip meets Sesame Street'. 

Strange Things is now available on Sharliza's website at You can listen to it at .
