Buckle up, grab some friends and come along to The Red Rattler on 31 March as Swaré takes to the stage along with Little Green, SADBOii and Sarah Wolfe in a special night on 1 stage. With music full of flavour that’ll have every beat pulsate through your veins, Swaré indie-pop meets electronic pop is catching the ears of Australia. Making music since he was a teenager, Swaré took his inspiration from the likes of Michael Jackson and David Bowie, but it wasn't until a close friend showed him a video of French electronic duo, Justice performing that Swaré decided to go all in on music; merging those styles together to something uniquely his own. Having gained commercial radio play with his singles ‘Only You’ and ‘Truth’ across The Edge 96.1 and iHeart Radio down to MTV Video rotation for his Music Video ‘Truth’. Prior to this, he has had support with his singles on Triple J’s Unearthed Radio with his singles ‘Conversations’, 'Houston' and ‘Pray’. With his growing achievements, his infectious indie-pop number ‘Only You’ peaked at #61 on the electronic chats on iTunes as well as ‘Conversations’ peaking at #82 on the same chart. In 2020, Swaré joined the Isol-Aid livestream on TikTok which brought in over 7,400 viewers grooving around the world to then taking on his own headline show in Sydney at Soda Factory. “it's unabashed and proud to take centre spot on the dancefloor.” - Declan Byrne LITTLE GREEN Little Green is the alter ego of Sydney based singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer, Amy Nelson. Growing up in the Blue Mountains, Amy developed a childlike sense of storytelling and serene musicality inspired by the nature around her. Self-taught on flute, sax, guitar, piano and vocals, she has used her skillset to create a compelling live show, start a popular mini beat series online, and collaborate with some of Sydney's best up and coming electronic producers; her most recent releases being supported by KIIS1065, Triple J, TEDx Melbourne, Spotify, MTV and more. An emerging female producer in her own right, Little Green's track ‘The Night’ received stellar reviews on Unearthed, her ‘sweet folky vocals’ and ‘mature production’ sending her to the top of the charts and earning her a premiere on Triple J. SADBOii Sydney-based SADBOii made waves with his debut single - ‘Nothing’ - which was released independently in March. The single has already been streamed over 1.5 Million times and has been a main-stay on popular playlists such as Fresh Finds Pop and Good Vibes. Nothing was featured on ‘Ash London Loves’ across the Hit Network in Australia and was regularly played on Triple J Unearthed’s digital radio station. SADBOii is a DIY project, with songs written, produced and performed by; and music videos, lyric videos and content created by: SADBOii, himself. Alongside his talents as a songwriter, singer, producer and multi-instrumentalist, SADBOii is also a talented 3D animation artist and graphic designer. Sarah Wolfe Sarah Wolfe spent the last three years working as an artist interviewer, interviewing some of her and Australia's fav artists: Vance Joy, Montaigne, Matt Corby, Troye Sivan and more. But behind the scenes, she was honing her music skills and prepping some music of her own. She may have been an average interviewer, but hopefully, she turns out to be a slightly above average musician! Working alongside producer and real-life partner Xavier Dunn (Peking Duk, Jack River, CXLOE, Graace), “I’ll Never Be Happy Again” details the emotional aftermath of a breakup as Sarah alternates between soft vocals and screams over a reverb-heavy guitar. Sonically, the track is reminiscent of Bleachers, infusing punk with mainstream pop in a way that is simultaneously catchy and cathartic. "I'll Never Be Happy Again" is one of the first songs I wrote where I finally felt comfortable in my own sound.” said Sarah. “It is loosely about a relationship that went wrong, but the more overarching theme for me is anxiety; how my head always makes things out to be far worse and far more dramatic than the situation actually is. I love how the lyrics play out over such a high energy soundtrack, I wanted this to be the point of hope in the song, a reminder that things do usually end up being ok. This song is as ridiculous as my own fears are sometimes!" Sarah Wolfe’s probing and grounded pop is ready to take the world by storm. “I’ll Never Be Happy Again” follows up successful solo efforts “Devil U Know” and “U Think This Is A Game?”, as well as “100 Times (feat. The Flowers)” and a cover of “I Think We’re Alone Now”, a collaborative cover with her partner Xavier Dunn, which was hand picked by US star Normani for her workout playlist on Spotify. “Sydney-born 22-year-old Sarah Wolfe is a musician among this collection of 2019 pop forces we're keeping an eye on entering the year ahead, marking her place in the local pop canon… [Devil U Know] is too good of a song to say that Sarah Wolfe isn't going to be carrying Australian pop's rising scene on her shoulders in the year ahead. – PileRats ‘20 artists to watch in 2020’
