Talk about a match made in Unearthed heaven!
Fresh from rocketing into the Hottest 100 for the first time (with ‘Not Worth Hiding’ at #23), Sydney songwriter Alex The Astronaut is teaming up with our Unearthed J Award 2017 Artist of the Year, Perth’s Stella Donnelly, for a co-headline tour.
The duo will jump in the van and dash around the nation this April, performing solo sets from their acclaimed respective catalogues. Alex, from her two EPs See You Soon and last year’s To Whom It May Concern (which are being bundled together for a double-vinyl release available on this tour. Nice!); Stella, from her debut EP Thrush Metal, which featured ‘Mechanical Bull’ the signature anthem ‘Boys Will Be Boys’, a crushingly intimate (and intimately crushing) treatise on victim-blaming and rape culture.
They’ll also “be sharing the stage at some point,” Alex The Astronaut tells triple j, hinting they might even have a stab at each other’s music at some point.
