Bio

Egoism began when Scout Eastment and Olive Rush started catching the same bus in high school. Their regular morning arguments about music became a drive to create something together. Scout and Olive were soon learning how write songs and make music, constantly running melodies; lyrics past each other. They discovered that they had a shared love and a
philosophy on how music should be made while hoping their songs
could one day be played live to people that wouldn't hate it.

By 2015 Scout and Olive were still in school and finally assembled a band. This resulted in an era of playing any inner west warehouse, shop front or house party they could sneak their friends into. All the while they were steadily dropping home-recorded singles online. 


Come 2016 - the band had finally come of age and was ready to properly join the local band scene.
Egoism have steadily gained a reputation supporting bands such as Last Dinosaurs, I Know Leopard and Phantastic Ferniture.

In 2018 - Scout and Olive commenced writing & recording tracks for the forthcoming 2nd EP, resulting in “Sorry” a driving dream pop anthem full of twinkling guitars and bittersweet harmonies coming together to project a strong anti-gaslighting message. It landed the duo their first couple plays on triple J as well as high rotation on fbi radio and triple j unearthed.

Now they are ready to present their follow up single, “Enemies”. Recorded almost entirely in a single bedroom, “Enemies” is pure guitar pop served in double time and slathered in reverb.
All while projecting the quintessential teenage experience of existential dread and total communication breakdown.

Not perfect, but not far off either. They've got all the signs here of making something really great in the near future. This - for now - is a pretty polished and dynamic indie pop track.

I said it on TOPS and i'll say it again. Absolutely brilliant. It's like Turnover meets Hatchie, but EGOISM. Absolute perfection.
