Bio

Skyepaint ​is the solo synthpop project of Newcastle-based songwriter and producer Amos Wellings. His distinct sound fuses the melodic sensibilities of 80s and 90s pop with modern electronic production and shimmering retro synths.

Following his 2018 singles ​Bury Us in Gold and What Do You Say, Skyepaint received editorial praise from the likes of Purple Sneakers, Laundry Echo, Magnetic Magazine and Auspop, alongside airplay on community radio stations across Australia such as SYN, Raw FM and Joy 94.9.

With an unforgettable live set and keytar in hand, ​Skyepaint has shared line-ups with some of Australia’s finest indie and electronic artists, including BOO SEEKA, E^ST, MEZKO, CLYPSO and more, winning over audiences in Newcastle, Sydney and Brisbane.

"Skyepaint delivers sparkling tunes with a gentle touch of splendour which showcases a talent worthy of attention. The music feels majestic and vibrant from the outset and throughout and is impossible to forget." (EQ Music Blog)

Early TKST meets CHVRCHES. Actually, get around Danny's band pre- TKST, Pigeon. I loved those guys. It's a nice listen but the vocals do need a bit more oomph amongst this soundscape, I was waiting for something big to happen.

Yeah a bit of Depeche Mode, CHVRCHES sounds coming out of this. The production is totally authentic. Reckon the vocals could be a bit stronger.

Skyepaint comes recommended by Newcastle Mayor Spencer Scott, and also Crown Prince Of Newcastle Joab Eastly. Who am I to challenge the oligarchy? pop sheen + compelling darkness.
