Cece Vee Releases Her Debut EP and Drops Music Video For, ‘Past Midnight’

Cece Vee is a very bright rising star that is lighting up the charts and is definitely someone to look out for.” – Underground Press (2021 - Review of “Dysfunctional”)

Striking an expert balance between ferocity and accessibility, she pulls emotion from the air around her and delivers it with a neo-pop punch.” - Texx and the City (2021 - Review of “DeLorean”)

Cece Vee is only making her debut and we can already tell she will be a singer to listen to in the next few months, so let’s lookout for this new talent that is proving herself more and more to the music industry.” - Conversations About Her  (2021 - Review of “Wild Hearts”)

It’s been a year since genre-defying singer and multi-instrumentalist Cece Vee first made her way onto the local and international music scene, leaving big impressions with tracks that graced the tops of playlists like JOOX’s New Pop Hits playlist (2020), and also garnered an exciting sync placement in an episode of the US TV series Good Trouble.

Now Cece brings her year-long project full circle with the release of ‘Past Midnight’, the last track that completes her EP of the same name. According to the artist, the brooding song is an homage to the conversations we have in our heads when we keep going back to a person or situation that is wrong for us.

With this last addition, the Past Midnight EP now stands at six tracks, namely:

  1. Wild Hearts

  2. DeLorean

  3. Dysfunctional

  4. Black Light

  5. Past Midnight

  6. Parasite aka A Song For My Shadow

Cece shares that the EP, produced and written by Paul Gala and Mia Van Wyk, explores themes of healing, nostalgia, regret, heartache, and personal growth.

“Over the past two years, I've been dealing with heartache and losses, life changes, anxiety and depressive feelings, all with a global pandemic as the cherry on top. I know many others have felt the same way. Through all the dark times, I have learnt so much about myself and grown into who I believe I was always meant to be. Past Midnight captures that emotional journey and ultimately shows that after every cycle of darkness, there will be light,” she reveals.

The evocative music video (Filmed and edited by Joshua Cookson) that accompanies the eponymous final track of the EP brings the talent of Cece Vee’s team into sharp focus.


“The music video for Past Midnight was one of the most challenging concepts we have tried to pull off so far. I wanted to create something that represents the dichotomy of the internal struggle that the song is about, and eventually landed on the idea of the conscience following and watching over you (sometimes even mocking you) as you make the decision to go to (or away) from a situation, constantly reminding you that there is more than one path you can take,” the artist explains.

As a whole, Past Midnight is exactly the kind of ecstatic escapism that these times call for. Oscillating between playful and heartbreaking, the music is upbeat, the lyrics captivating, and the combination thereof easy to get lost in, whether for a song or the duration of the album. It's personal, as all of Cece's music is, but it still manages to make you want to move.
