FlecHaus, Austin band fronted by vocalist Megan Flechaus, has released their newest Video Tell Me Something “, in this video filmed By Jason Schaub, Megan and her group FlecHaus take a direct yet gentle stance on a woman’s place in the world.

At first, listening to the song,  one thinks this may be about being lied to by a life partner, someone very close, and in a way it is that, yet is also about standing up for what you believe yourself to be. It is about being who you are, who you want to be and living up to the only expectations that matter, your own.

A hot topic in today’s news is not only women’s rights, but how a woman defines herself. Often, women are told, by their parents, friends, partners and society, what they need to be, or how they need to act, engaging stereotypes of “proper behavior”.

The fact is, A woman has the right, and obligation to seek her own level, to be the best SHE determines herself to be, and in Tell Me Something “, this topic is brought to the forefront and met with bold statement.

I found that the visual aesthetic and power of the song’s meaning, being filmed in black and white, and then bursting into color to be a strong metaphor, being the point where you decide to break free from oppressive thinking and becoming empowered to be who YOU decide you should be. And that this is not only about the modern woman’s point of self-awareness empowerment, but anyone who feels their life is and can be worth so much more than it is if they stand for what matters most, their own happiness.

Megan Flechaus has, and continues to move forward, breaking stereotypes of what a female artist is and could be, and with the incredible talents in FlecHaus that support her in both music and life, our comment of Megan being  “Austin’s newest rising star” is not only still a valid praise, but a benchmark that others should strive to reach.

The entire group, Kenzie Slottow on flute; Dominick Chaillot on bass; Nathan Smith on drums; and Sara Louise, backing vocalist all have again given their all in this and it is so well done. We understand that the group has been joined by Benjamin Levy on fiddle, which ads a great dynamic to the music.

The band’s second single “What We’ve Got” won two L.A. Music Critic Awards this past summer: “Best Single-Group” and “Fan Favorite”.

Press has said the following and it is completely true, we see more of this coming in her future.

“An amazing artist primed to burst onto the indie music scene”
