Surrounded by an art installation featuring wires and woolen yarns, the Australian singer-songwriter's sharp wit stands out in a sweetly quiet song that rages loudly.

Stella Donnelly has only one EP to her name, but that's been enough to make her sharp wit come through in sweet, quiet songs that rage loudly. The Australian singer-songwriter's Thrush Metal EP was recently reissued in the U.S. with a bonus track, "Talking," which she performs here surrounded by video of wires, a weaving machine and woolen yarns.
Donnelly played "Talking" in Conductors and Resistance, an art installation by the Israeli artist Ronen Sharabani that's on display as part of the SXSW Art Program. Like Donnelly's direct and feminist folk songs, Sharabani confronts the viewer to increase action in areas of high resistance, the only way to ensure a strong reaction.
