Bio

Second Idol (FKA Bruise Pristine), delivers 90s alternative rock-inspired stompers addressing empowerment, diversity, political cynicism and queerness. Ruthless and unapologetic, Second Idol has been making an impact on the Sydney live music scene delivering intense live performances through their fondness for fuzz pedals and fusion of alternative rock, post-punk, grunge and shoegaze influences.
