Bio

Perth Avant-folk darlings Simone & Girlfunkle are pleased to announce the March 24 arrival of their sophomore album Hold On, the much-anticipated follow up to 2013’s Hurry, Harry which was hailed as “a debut that has no weak points.” (X-Press Magazine).
Spearheaded by new single Girls, a self-described war cry declaring that their gender-equal band won't be stepped on.
Recorded and mixed at Blackbird Studios by the golden-eared Dave Parkin (Tired Lion, Jebediah) and mastered by ARIA award winning engineer William Bowden (Gotye, Emma Louise), Hold On varies from uplifting melodic-pop to soul-bearing emotional folk-simplicity; the delightful vocals and instrumentation make this album a sonically satisfying listen.
Since forming on a hazy sun-drenched afternoon in North Perth, Simone & Girlfunkle's deserving reputation has resulted in slots alongside some of Australia's finest including Holly Throsby, Wendy Matthews and All Our Exes Live in Texas, while notching up performances at Southbound, St. Kilda Festival, State of the Art, Nannup Music Festival, Port City Folk Festival, Channel Nine's The Weekend Today Show and Fairbridge Folk Festival where "...the girls' flawless harmonies were a force to be reckoned with." (themusic.com.au).
