Bio

Since their first EP was released in 2020, Supathick the band have kept moving forward, teasing tracks, as well as an aesthetic that pays homage to ‘70s funk feels but leaves room for the band to be themselves, both as a group and as individuals.

The ‘thick year that was 2020, saw the band release two singles, an EP, and play support slots with the likes of Spacey Jane and Great Gable.

2021 has already seen Supathick nominated for four WAM Awards (Best EP, Best R&B/Funk/Soul act, Best Music Video and Best Keys player) and a 12-date sold out national tour with old friends, Great Gable. The band played to 4,000 people at Perth’s HBF Stadium in support of The Veronicas in June and released a single, July, featuring acclaimed WA hip hop artist, Adrian Dvzuke, shortly followed by Time, featuring the band's live vocalist; Keely Brittain.

A further two new single releases will be rolled out this year, the first of which, Baby I Feel Love, features R&B singer/songwriter Matt Sevier, and, echoing the likes of Jamiroquai, is Supathick’s most up-tempo disco number so far.

“The next two singles are quite contrary to each other,” Zappia says, “with Baby I Feel Love being up-tempo, a bit grittier and very lively. Whereas the fourth and final single for this year, Can’t Keep Waiting (featuring Kaitlyn Keegan) is much more down tempo, sensual, sexy… that kind of vibe. I can’t wait for both of them to come out. I’m really excited.”

While the band maintain their collaborative nature, following the Great Gable tour Supathick have been proud to announce that neo-soul/pop artist Keely Brittain, the live vocalist at all their shows, has officially joined the collective. A second EP is in the works for 2022, but for now the band is focussed on playing shows at home in WA, currently the only Australian state this is realistically possible to do so.

“We’re shifting our focus into the WA scene for the remainder of the year which will be really nice,” Zappia reflects, “I’m looking forward to getting back into it.”

this band should release a line of rock pool sandals cause across their uploads over the last coupla months, I've yet to see them even come close to slipping.
