A new project from Melbourne-based singer/songwriter Kelsie Rimmer, best known for her appearances on The Voice Australia, upcoming electronic/pop producer SONA will be launching her debut EP ‘Runaway’ at The Workers Club on Saturday the 28th of October.
SONA’s debut self-produced EP features an ambient mixture of mesmerising electronic production, poetic lyrics and haunting vocals with subtle folk undertones. Already gaining airplay on Triple J Unearthed Radio, ‘Runaway’ closely follows SONA’s recent single and collaboration with American producer OTR, ’Already Gone’. The single has reached over 500,000 plays on Spotify since its release in June of this year, and has received rave reviews from This Song Slaps, Beautiful Buzz, Disco Belle and Dancing Astronaut.
A contestant on The Voice Australia 2017, Kelsie Rimmer performed as an acoustic/folk artist, making it to the Battle Rounds on Team Delta. But in the background, Kelsie has been developing her artistry and sound into an ambient electronic–folk fusion, independently recording, producing and releasing her new EP under the SONA project.
Embarking on a regional Victorian tour throughout September and October, Kelsie has been playing intimate shows to promote her EP in regional areas such as Kyneton, Bridgewater, Marong and Daylesford, and will be finishing off her 12 date tour in Melbourne at The Workers Club, Fitzroy.
Featuring an electric line up charged with girl power, SONA’s EP launch will include guest performances from fellow local electronic artists VILLAH, BLOOM and ALLOLA, and is sure to be an atmospheric and mesmerising afternoon of live music.
