Melanie Martinez Brings Cry Baby Tour To Australia This August

Provocative singer, songwriter with a stunning visual presence...

That's the best way to describe former The Voice contestant Melanie Martinez. And guess what? She's bringing it all here in Australia when she tours the country this August, following the 2015 release of her debut album 'Cry Baby'.

The unforgettable New York artist will be performing debut headline shows in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth.

“The music…perches prettily tinkling keyboards and concise pop choruses amid the slow, ominous basslines and twitchy percussion of Southern hip-hop — a candy-coated variation on the dirges of Lorde and Lana Del Rey.", wrote the New York Times about her Cry Baby Tour New York performance.

Since the release of her 2014 EP “Dollhouse”, Melanie has continued to build a loyal fan base, and sold out extensive North American and Spring European tours. Melanie also has a string of upcoming performances at major music festivals Lollapalooza, Panorama, Bumbershoot, Osheaga and more.

Melanie masterminds all of her companion videos, and there can be no denying the strength of the visuals that accompany all of the songs on “Cry Baby”. It also includes the hit singles ‘Dollhouse’ and ‘Carousel’, both first released in 2014 on her stunning debut, “The Dollhouse” EP.

‘Dollhouse’ has proven to be an online phenomenon, garnering over 54 million views. Similarly, ‘Carousel’, matched the chart and online success of ‘Dollhouse’ and the haunting video - filmed on Melanie’s native Long Island, NY – is another YouTube favourite with more than 34 million views and counting. The numbers continue to be staggering in volume, with first single ‘Pity Party’ views now exceeding the 45 million view mark, second single ‘Soap’ at over 24 million views and title track 'Cry Baby' sitting on 20+ million and counting.

Now her latest, the kaleidoscopic 'Alphabet Boy', marks Melanie’s fastest-growing video yet, earning over 1 million individual views in the first eight hours of its release. ‘Alphabet Boy’ now boasts total views exceeding 11 million and her YouTube channel now has over 2.2 million subscribers.

So if you're after impressive musicality fused with a stunning visual packaging, then Melanie's Cry Baby Tour is for you!
