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.

"Maturity" is such a weird word in music and it sometimes comes off as a bit elitist when talking about a song. But I'm using it hear because it really does feel like Austen has GROWN over the last couple of years and is now reaching some new heights as a songmaker. This is intentional and classy pop music.

I really got lost in this track. So emotive and immersive, I'm totally with Declan on this one - it's energising but also chill.

austen continues to shift her sound and offer new angles with each release and this pure, immersive release is somehow chill but energised all in one. i'm aloft and feeling weightless with this in my headphones.
