About this Event

EGOISM are childhood friends Scout Eastment and Olive Rush from the inner west of Sydney, who create dreamy emotional guitar pop. Scout and Olive taught each other how to write songs; running melodies and lyrics past each other on the bus to school.

Self-described as “headphones on the train” music, they combine their dual lead vocals with introspective lyrics, pristine melodies and a trademark shoegaze influence.

Following their previous singles, ‘What Are We Doing?’ and ‘You You’, EGOISM now announce their latest single 'Here's The Thing'.

'Here's The Thing' was written, recorded and produced by the duo in their bedrooms, mixed by Matthew Neighbour (The Avalanches, Matt Corby, Sky Ferreira) and funded by the triple j Level Up Grant.

On “Here’s the Thing” Olive says that they “wrote it in the middle of winter while I was house sitting in my friends' studio apartment in the city, while they went to Europe. At the time I was dropping out of TAFE, my relationship was falling apart, and it wouldn’t stop raining outside. It felt like the world was caving in on itself. It was hard to finish this one; listening to a past version of myself singing about feeling absolutely heartbroken over and over again - it’s totally draining. I like it now, but it took some time. I don’t think I’ve ever captured a moment through lyrics that intensely before.”

Supported by SUPERCHORUS
