Miss Blanks (Good Good D single launch)
In just over 12 months since her debut single, ‘Clap Clap’, Miss Blanks has quickly established herself as one of the most important new voices among the Australian music landscape. With fire music, hot style, and a stage presence like no other, she is blowing up the scene in a way that’s too loud for people to ignore.

With explosive early singles, ‘Clap Clap’ & ‘Freq U’, she flexed hard and saw the industry clamber to celebrate this powerful musical force from Brisbane. Not only did industry heavyweights like Complex, i-D/Vice, Billboard, Rolling Stone, Redbull, Acclaim, and many more become fans, Miss Blanks inked a deal with Trench Records, where things only continued to go from strength to strength. 

Her next single, ‘Skinny Bitches,’ was released shortly after and was added to rotation at Triple J, as she also announced her debut EP, ‘Diary Of A THOTaholic’ would be released November 2017 on Trench Records. Acting as co-producer on D.O.A.T., she has begun to take more control of her fledgling yet ferocious style, as she makes a conscious and calculated effort to establish herself as much more than just hype act.

Not only recognized as a musician, but as an activist and writer, Miss Blanks has given talks at TED and NYU, she was named one of Spotify’s faces for their 2017 campaign, and signed a brand deal with LEVI’s which saw her go on to be a face of LEVI’s 2018 campaign.

Other accolades include supporting international stars like Little Simz (UK) and Dai Burger (NYC), as well as playing spots on prestigious festivals like Vivid, Dark Mofo, Bigsound, Listen Out, The Plot, Meredith Music Festival, Laneway Festival, and more.

As much as 2017 was the year where Miss Blanks established her name, 2018 is the year Miss Blanks establishes her reign.

Exhibitionist (Debut EP Launch)
Sydney based multi-instrumentalist Exhibitionist announces her debut EP Let Go Of Love, due out June 8th via Future Classic. The latest single from Let Go Of Love, the captivating 'Sway' was released last month to acclaim from the likes of KCRW, Dummy Mag and Line Of Best Fit.

Let Go of Love is nothing short of an exceptional, elegant pop record. Written during and after the breakdown of a long-term relationship, the EP explores heartache and unease and through honest lyricism, intricate instrumentation and Tickle’s delicate, honey vocals. But the EP is certainly isn’t your standard break-up record, with Tickle also thoughtfully diving into the murky, confusing landscape of navigating selfhood during a moment of change. 

To celebrate the release of her EP, Exhibitionist will be heading out on tour in June.

“Independent artist LALKA doesn’t pay attention to trends. She doesn’t follow fads or kowtow to novelties. No, she has always done things her own way, and you just have to listen to but a few seconds of her music to see this.

Fierce, unapologetic and bold, LALKA is hellbent on carving out her own space in the plethora of electronic artists, and her unique and striking individuality is what guides her creative journey. With two exceptional singles under her belt in 2017, critical acclaim and new fans around the country and beyond, she’s bound for big things next year. Forever remaining true to her ethos of individual style along with a DIY attitude, LALKA proves time and time again she is as innovative and exciting as they come.” - Emma Jones, editor of Purple Sneakers 

“... a left-field, almost confrontational take on pop with an overall sound that lives somewhere between the unsettling experimentalism of Fever Ray and the catchy rap immediacy of Die Antwoord.” - Electronic North

“... lyrics delivered with fierce coldness and production slapping you back with raw intensity. Big things ahead.” - Tommy Faith, producer at Triple J Unearthed 

“LALKA’s live show is pure magic.” - Music Is My Muse
