The Unearthed High Report Card: Week 3!

There's less than three weeks to go to throw your hat in the ring for Unearthed High 2018!

This week, High School Super User Isabella Moore invites triple j Unearthed's Music Director Dave Ruby Howe on the show for a mid-comp report, talking trends and highlights so far. Plus, you'll hear from returning acts like Nancie Schipper and Stevan, as well as a cool brother-sister collab featuring a very familiar Unearthed name!

It's episode three of the Unearthed High Report Card, and it's jam-packed with gold.
