Bio

From humble beginnings in a Brisbane bedroom, Austen’s unique brand of hooky and emotive indie-pop has gone on to hit airwaves and stages around the country, introducing her as one of the most promising rising voices of her kind.

With her mononymous persona serving as a bold alter ego to the self-described introvert, Austen draws inspiration from synth pop, electronica, psychedelia, art pop and indie, and has been praised for her distinctive sound that reaches as much into the vintage of the 60’s as it does towards the futuristism of the 3000’s.

This is one of Austen's least direct pop singles but don't underestimate its earworm capabilities. It might not be on the nose but it's clever a clever pop record.

this one just keeps growing on me, it's low key pop that consumes you without jumping all over ya. clever, feel good, addictive stuff!

Austen sounds like she's in her zone on this smouldering new track. It just gliiides like a stealth jet, that chorus getting implanted in your ears.
