Bio

Coming to you from a bedroom in Brisbane, Australia, Austen is hook-fuelled, alternative pop driven by electronic and hip hop influences, and a voice that flicks effortlessly between ethereal and commanding.

Since the success of her debut single Faded, Austen has continued to polish her darkly relatable take on pop with a steady stream of singles and vocal features, and has honed her captivating live show with support slots for the likes of The Kite String Tangle, Running Touch, Nicole Millar, Col3trane, Paces, a showcase at EMC and Bigsound, and a set at Big Pineapple Festival.

The start of 2019 saw her release ‘Anthem’ - the brooding electro-pop single that received Triple J spot rotation - embarking on a 5-date national tour of her own before jumping up to support Nordic pop sensation AURORA on her Groovin The Moo sideshows.

With two singles, her debut EP, and a national EP tour still yet to come in 2019, it’s safe to say Austen is one to watch closely this year.

Nothin' gold-plated about this. A 24-karat gold middle finger to "dating" that feels like a transaction. CHING CHING.

My fav Austen jam yet. Great hooks, an assured performance and production you can really get lost in.
