Canberra outfit SAFIA have returned to the music scene for 2018, debuting new single Freakin Out. The release comes on the eve of their taking to the stage at Mountain Sounds Festival and ahead of their headlining slot at surf festival The Drop.
Freakin Out offers up a slice of groove-heavy electro-pop, anchored by up-tempo beats and heavily warped synths and vocals. The single proves to be a far more natural progression for the band than last year’s NASA recording-inflected Cellophane Rainbow, the band’s first release since their massive first album Internal.
The acclaimed debut, released in 2016, scored the band a #2 on the ARIA Album chart, #1 on the iTunes chart, and saw them receive ARIA and J Award nominations, as well as a completely sold-out run of shows across the country.
Hear Freakin’ Out when SAFIA perform it live around the country over the next few months.
