Bio

After exploding onto the scene in 2017 with their remarkable debut single acidic and follow-up release V.I.P., imbi the girl has turned heads, carving their own path across Australia and beyond. Raised in Sydney, imbi the girl’s unique combination of poetic hip-hop, soul and R&B has led to featuring prominently on Noisey, Triple J and Rage as well as music festival appearances at Listen Out, Groovin The Moo, Big Pineapple Music Festival, Wide Open Space Festival and Festival Of The Sun.

Following their impressive debut year, their fan base has continued to grow after imbi the girl featured on Spit Syndicate, Oh Boy and Esoterik’s respective singles. From recently supporting Sampa The Great, FKJ and Horrorshow to playing on festival bills alongside Aminé, Lady Leshurr and Vera Blue, imbi the girl’s live set has been described by AAA Backstage as “one of the most extraordinary moments in music ever witnessed”.

Having recently performed at VIVID Sydney’s annual festival and winner of this year’s Triple J Unearthed NIDA competition, imbi the girl passionately describes their newly released single swell as “just the beginning” of their musical journey.

Your strongest chorus yet. This one's full of relatable lyrical snippets and your trademark rolling-on-and-on verses that make me feel like I'm tumbling gently down a lush green hill.

Imbi back with a very personal track. We can all relate to those feelings where everything seems to just happen all at once, emotions begin to build and it becomes very overwhelming. Your ability to capture that exact feeling and ride of emotions is clever. The poetry, songwriting and your voice are flawless. It's very hooky and it'll have everyone singing along by the end of it.
