Bio

The alt-rock band, Sputnik Sweetheart, have quickly established themselves in the Australian music scene. The band has built a reputation for delivering emotive, high-energy performances to sold out shows in their home-town of Canberra and beyond. 


In 2019, Sputnik Sweetheart released their debut EP, Growing Pains, which is best described as a collection of songs inspired by growing into adulthood. Tongue-in-cheek lyrics are used to explore an array of themes; from gender equality, to the impacts of technology on relationships. 


Since the release of their breakout singles, Home Again and Us Girls, Sputnik Sweetheart have played sold out shows around the country, nabbing slots at nationally acclaimed festivals Spilt Milk and Stonefest, and supported the likes of Ball Park Music, Spacey Jane, British India, Kingswood, and Joyce Manor.

A strong post-punk flourish for Sputnik Sweetheart to send 2020 off with! The playing and Nette's vocals rise like this tide of tension through the song, finishing with a cathartic exit.

The lyrics, the dueling guitar lines, the unpredictable melodies - I love it all.
