Bio

Melbourne’s Amarina Waters plays indie electric folk, stealing ideas from her dinner plate, backyard, other people, the world. Her songs are contradictions; raw/funny, fierce/delicate, romantic yet strikingly candid.

An active and much loved member of Melbourne’s indie scene, sharing a stage with the likes of Gretta Ray, Angie McMahon, Broads, Al Parkinson, Loni Rae Thomson, Emilee South, she’s now bringing her music out into the limelight.

After the sold out launch of her debut single A Sense Of You, Amarina raised funds through a Pozible campaign to travel to New Zealand and record at The Sitting Room in Lyttelton.

2019 will herald the release of Amarina’s debut album, recorded in New Zealand with award winning producer Ben Edwards (Marlon Williams, Aldous Harding, Julia Jacklin)

The first single ‘Kicking Around’ released July 12, is a tongue in cheek anthem to the human condition.

"Centred around delicate but powerful vocals, the overall mood is a big nod to human imperfection and the beauty that comes with owning exactly that.. a vulnerable yet resolved approach that feels hopeful in every moment. " - Deafen County

Liking this tale of love gone awry from Amarina. If you ever wanted your Angie McMahon with a heavier twang to it then I reckon you'll get something out of this one.
