Bio

Azim Zain, a Malaysian-born migrant, has been a fixture in Canberra's music community for years, having played in bands such as Slagatha Christie and Elk Locker in addition to his own project. Zain burst onto the scene in 2015 with his band of Lovely Bones, a revolving door lineup having included members from Moaning Lisa, Helena Pop and Brother Be, turning his solo folk act into the party emo/indie rock band beloved by the nation's capital.

The project has seen Zain play around the country, earn a National Live Music Award nomination, release two well-received EPs and support the likes of Joyce Manor, The Hard Aches and Slowly Slowly.

2019 marked a new era for Zain, writing and recording new music without his Bones for the first time. It's a brave new world and Azim Zain is riding out to meet it.

Absolutely stellar track from Azim and the moment Vic comes in is so spot on. I really really feel like this is the kind of song that will soar live, can't wait for y'all to come to Melb!

i reckon this is the best yet from azim's forthcoming album. it's got heart but damn it drags you along for a heck of a ride. and the duet with vic is the cherry on top (of a $5 caramel mud cake cos punk don't pay the bills).

Even if punk never pays the bills like Azim says, you still can't put a price tag on the that feeling when the whole crowd shrieks back the main refrain, arm in arm, hearts and minds fused by the music.
