Australian Three Piece SAFIA Release New Single ‘Freakin’ Out’ on Warner Music
Having amassed over 50 million streams globally, including 2 x Gold singles in their native Australia, ARIA nominated 3-piece SAFIA are giving us the first taste of new music for 2018 with brand new single ‘Freakin’ Out‘.
‘Freakin’ Out’, which is available now sees the band return to an anthemic, groove-heavy sound with a warped quirky tone.
Having previously toured with the likes of 21 Pilots, Lorde, Rudimental, and Disclosure, the single follows on from ‘Cellophane Rainbow’ which has received over 1 million streams since its release at the end of 2017 and was the first piece of new music from the band since their acclaimed debut.
The pair’s debut album ‘Internal’ reached #2 in Australia, and landed at #1 on the iTunes chart, received ARIA and J Award nominations and saw the band complete a sold-out run of national album shows. 2017 saw them perform to capacity crowds on the Listen Out tour, selling out 4,000+ capacity arenas, and over the past few years have had slots at Great Escape, Primavera, and Coachella (with Peking Duk) amongst others.
In addition to performing headline shows in the UK, US and Europe (selling out shows at London’s ‘Oslo’) as well as appearing at SXSW, the band have toured extensively in Australia including shows at Splendour in the Grass, Groovin The Moo, Falls Festival, Beyond the Valley, Field Day, Big Pineapple and Curve Ball.
