Amy Shark

Amy Shark, best described as the creatively complex girl next door, was born and raised on the Gold Coast but has been catapulted into the music industry quicker than you can say worldwide record deal. Her hit track “ADORE” spent all of 1 night in the big bad world before being added to triple j rotation and shooting to #1 on the Aus & NZ Spotify local and viral chart. It’s now exceeded 4.4 million streams on Spotify.

2016 has seen her dominate the triple j studios with her Like A Version cover of Silverchair’s “Miss You Love” and lit up our hearts all over again with a stripped back version of her hit song “ADORE”. With support slots under her belt for the likes of Matt Corby, Dylan Joel and The Delta Riggs, Amy claimed a coveted spot on the line up for Sydney Festival THE PLOT, where she slayed in front of a sea of already dedicated fans and capped off the whirlwind year touring around Australia with Cub Sport and Tigertown. We’ve only just seen the start of Amy Shark.

Friday treats for your ears!

We’ve been absolutely spoilt this morning with both Amy Shark AND Allday dropping new singles and we couldn’t be more stoked!

After scoring the #2 spot in triple j’s Hottest 100 for her single ‘Adore’, Amy Shark has had all eyes on her waiting to see what she would release next. ‘Weekends’ premiered yesterday on triple j with Veronica and Lewis and the praise came streaming through!

We’re big fans of this track. It retains the lyrical style we’ve come to love from the Queenslander and is backed by electronic percussions. “’Weekends’ is an extremely personal song,” she says. “I actually wrote the guitar part about five years ago which sounds crazy, but I couldn’t think of any lyrics good enough to match the guitar so I let it go for so many years, until now!”

‘Weekends’ it’s the first taste of her upcoming EP Night Thinker which is due out on 21st April! Pre-order available now.

 

Allday delivered ‘In Motion (feat. Japanese Wallpaper)’, which is a softer side to Allday then we’ve seen as of late and it’s definitely working for him. When we first heard rumours of the two Melbourne musicians collaborating, we were intrigued as to what it would sound like, but ‘In Motion’ is a beauty. Allday’s distinctive vocals backed in by Japanese Wallpaper’s ethereal electronic production just works, and we REALLY hope there’s more to come from these two. People are frothing over the collab.

Allday has also just announced his new album Speeding which will, like Amy Shark, be released on 21st April! Pre-order available now.

 

Both tunes have been added to our Spotify playlist – listen below!

When I Grow Up…

When you’re young, you always dream of what you’re going to be when you grow up… from a Ballerina to an Astronaut and everything in between. The artists on our line up are no different!

Before they hit the big time, they too had ambitions and dreams – some of them coming close to where they are today! We asked a few of them what they dreamed of becoming when they were a young’un… here are their answers!

 

Allday

“I wanted to be a basketball player who rapped on the side. Now I’m a rapper who plays basketball on the side so that’s okay.”

Amy Shark

“There were a few… Tennis player, Actress and FBI agent (I was obsessed with Scully and Mulder).”

Hayden James

“When I was a kid I wanted to be a Machinery Vibration Specialist, but in the end I didn’t get the marks so I had to be a musician.”

Slumberjack

“Morgan wanted to be a fireman and then aspired to be a stock broker. Fletcher wanted to be a robot scientist and later thought to be a chemical engineer. Look where we are now.”

Wil Wagner from The Smith Street Band

“Exactly what I am now except better looking and more successful!”

James Carter from Snakehips

“Spaceman.”

Sam Hales from The Jungle Giants

“There was a long time there where I wanted to be a jazz drummer. Studied up a lot and started playing in the young jazz band at the Conservatorium of Music in Brisbane.

It was an obsession for a good while and then a friend of mine at school wanted to start a band… That kind of ended the jazz train for me and put me on to writing.”

Michael Richards from Violent Soho

“I always wanted to be a rock star. I got pretty close by becoming a rock drummer which is definitely something I can learn to live with.”
