‘Love Is in the Air’, everywhere we look around. Stella Donnelly was on-air, every sight and every sound.

LA Times feature

Tense times call for tense songs, and Stella Donnelly has a few. See “Boys Will Be Boys.”

The single, which introduced the Australian artist to the pop world, goes deep on rape culture with verses that begin by documenting an individual story, in this case one belonging to Donnelly’s friend, and then widen out to encompass victim blaming and the lifelong effects of trauma.

The Importance of ‘They Need Us’ by Feels and Stella Donnelly

She’s a member of brash punk upstarts BOAT SHOW, pinch-hit as keyboardist for Methyl Ethel at Falls Festival Fremantle, and, let’s not bury the lede, a burgeoning solo star who pretty much took over BIG SOUND in Brisbane last year.

LA Times feature

In a time of political and social upheaval, artists at SXSW turned to self-preservation.

Mid-20s Australian artist Stella Donnelly was about halfway through “Mean to Me,” a song about a no-good significant other who criticizes her jokes, acts bored in her presence and lacks even a sliver of human decency, when she decided to lighten the mood with the lilt of a violin…
