There’s a lot for our city to be proud of. Particularly the unparalleled talent that comes out of our born and bred Canberrans.
The boys of SAFIA are back for a one-night only gig on Saturday 24 August at UC Refectory, after releasing their highly anticipated sophomore album Story’s Start or End. Part of their Australian and New Zealand tour, they are traversing the nation with good friends Boo Seeka and Eilish Gilligan.
Written and produced by the band over the past 2.5 years in their hometown Canberra, the album will include current single ‘Resolution’, as well as previously released singles ‘Starlight’ and ‘Cellophane Rainbow’. Story’s Start or End will showcase the Australian three-piece’s bold vision and fine attention to detail, with intricate production and adventurous arrangements underpinning thoughtful musings on identity, growth, and understanding.
SAFIA have had a busy year making a return to Splendour in the Grass, and gracing the stages of Beyond the Valley, Origin Fields, This That, The Grass is Greener, The Drop and a headline slot at Corona Sunsets. They also completed a sold-out run of limited capacity shows down the East Coast of Australia and played to adoring crowds in China twice.
The new album is set to transport us to another world and yet again shake up the Australian music scene. Let’s not forget their recent wins landing #2 on the ARIA Album chart, #1 on the iTunes chart, receiving ARIA and J Award nominations, placing in Triple J’s top 100 year on year and supporting the likes of Lorde, Disclosure, Twenty One Pilots and Rudimental.
Don’t miss out on the impactful performance as they make a hometown visit.
