Melbourne-based KONNIE is a voice to be reckoned with. With powerful soaring vocals, dramatic builds, and intimately personal lyrics, new single “Hide & Seek” is a significant step in her career as a songwriter and pop singer on the verge of breaking through.
Infused with Moombahton-style beats, earthy tones, and an epic chorus, the MSquared-produced single draws on tropical influences from a recent trip to Cuba and Central America, giving the track a vibrancy and texture perfect for the impending Summer months.
A passionate community and foundation group worker by day, and coming from a traditional big Greek family, KONNIE is no stranger to reaching out and helping others. “Hide & Seek” is her way of reaching out to people and sharing her struggle with mental health and battling insecurities, saying let’s talk, open up to me… ‘where are you hiding’.
Having lived in Greece for a couple of years as a child, and then with her grandparents in Melbourne in her teens – every second afternoon in her household her pappou would be playing the clarinet accompanied by her yiayia playing the accordion. Music, dancing, and using those as forms of self-expression is in her blood. It was the loss of a close mentor & loved one that pushed Konnie towards finally showing her songs to the world.
She describes her vibe of music to be playful, and exciting, yet with a clear underlying message. A lot of the lyrical inspiration comes from her writings from when she was a teen – from issues of dealing with her own insecurities, mental health to the playfulness of a new love or pushing & believing in yourself
