Bio

Scout Eastment and Olive Rush, from Sydney’s inner west are EGOISM. Pilerats described the duo’s music as “amongst the most euphoric you’ll find. It’s blissful, indulgent with hazy guitar melodies and lo-fi vocals that wrap around you with a warmth and comfort that makes every tone and every note feel so happily familiar with positive emotions. Underneath, however, is where the storm often looms - songwriting being a major process for reflection and introspective thoughts for both of them.”

Having watched the music video for this, I can't help but picture that saab cruising around every time this song comes on. EGOISM don't miss, that's just how it be.

Great interplay between Scout and Olive here. And when that slightly distorted rhythm hits two minutes in, the ride gets even better.

petition to get egosim and the 1975 to collab?! there's something so damn special about the way you perfectly craft such emotional stories laced in funky pop - this is hands down the find of my week.
