Bio

Azim Zain 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.

Quality! Azim Zain sounds like a full blown Canberran folk (punk) hero with this emphatic track that balances intensity with wit.
