Bio

BETTY & OSWALD are a band from Sydney. They play music that is a little bit groovy, a little bit gritty, and a little bit somewhere in-between. They have nice harmonies, gritty guitar lines, tasty bass and some good drums. Their songs are about being stuck in the city, living outrageously, and just trying to feel something. Their sound has been described as a strange noise, or like nothing else, and a random guy said it was the best thing ever.

In 2016 they released a song called “Schmuck,” which got played on Triple J, FBi and 4ZZZ, rotated on Rage, and talked about on Rolling Stone Australia, Pilerats, Tone Deaf, Happy and some international blogs, and Triple J’s music director, Richard Kingsmill, gave it a 4/5 star review. They played at Visions Festival, King Street Crawl and Newtown Social Club’s 2nd Birthday. Now they are releasing a song called “Stuck In The City,” about just that–being young and staying alive in the city. Catch them in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne this November or at Lost Paradise Festival at the end of the year.

Just when you think this song has lost its way, they tie it all back up by the end and you want to go straight back to the start.

This is great. Your voices meld like peanut butter ice-cream and strawberry swirl, Claudia just adding a touch of sweetness to a more earthy, crunchy palate.
