Petite Meller

What do you get, if you take a French songstress and put her in a ball pit? Petite Meller sharing thoughts on philosophy, favourite old movies and visually documenting chapters of her life. 

The Paris-born, self-proclaimed nuovo-jazzy pop princess has been making quite a splash most recently releasing Baby Love.  

Her colourful, storyline-heavy and dream-like music videos are self-directed and inspired by some of her favourite New Wave cinema movies, such as Fellini's La Dolce Vita.

What put her first on the map, is her homemade video for Backpack, which takes inspiration from two of her favourite films, Godard's Pierrot Le Fou and L'Enfer d'Henri-Georges Clouzot.

But it's not just music and moving image for Petite; she is also a philosophy postgraduate with an affinity for Lacan's theories and Freud's psychoanalysis.

While playing in an adult ball pit in a swimming costume, talking about discovering sexuality, investigating her subconscious and praising Hitchcock's Vertigo, we realise, that she may just be the most unusual pop princess around.
