Fiery pop newcomer Farrah Mechael is bringing back hot girl summer with her vibrant second EP “Lies.” Featuring production and writing from Andre ‘Dre Bombay’ Harris, Don Parma, Devrim Karaoglu, Ant Clemons and the Mechael sisters – Farrah and Tamara – “Lies” is a sultry fusion of electronic pop with hip-hop sensibilities. The EP serves us banger after banger, including a remaster of Farrah’s previously released single ‘That Way’ featuring Mackned – in addition to 5 new tracks including ‘Carefully’ – a sensual song of the summer with a thunderous bass.
Farrah Mechael has been making major (sound)waves with her performances at iHeart Radio’s Wango Tango in Los Angeles in 2018 and Detroit Summer Jamz in 2019. Her dedication to community building and mental health activism on her growing online platform has garnered a powerful, but intimate fanbase. She is ready to inspire change through music with a resonant message, commonly stating, “I truly do believe the world needs change. And if we don’t change it, who will?”
Farrah’s music career began as a classically trained opera singer. She’s performed Jazz and Gospel sets at prestigious events like Obama’s Inauguration Ceremony in Detroit. In 2020, Farrah has used her classical music and cultural background to reimagine her unique voice. She incorporates both her roots – being a Chaldean woman growing up in metro Detroit – and her current experience working out of Los Angeles into her newest release.
‘Lies’ includes a Detroit rap-inspired track ‘Ice Pack,’ the title track ‘Lies’ – which serves a Middle Eastern vibe — a nod to her heritage — Farrah is originally from Iraq and is recognized as a Middle Eastern pop star. She feels strongly towards spotlighting Middle Eastern representation (and the lack thereof) in American media.
Songs like ‘What Do You Want,’ ‘I’m In Love,’ and ‘Carefully’ call back to the pop roots of her debut release ‘Farrah Please,’ while moving forward with west coast dance influences.
